Perth is a buzzing metropolis in an idyllic location.

Perth perfectly combines vibrant city living with the charms of a coastal community.

The city itself is host to thriving suburbs packed with stylish bars and restaurants serving up a delicious range of global cuisine. The thriving nightlife is matched by a fabulous offering of cultural attractions, such as the Perth Zoo, the Art Gallery of Western Australia, and the Perth Mint.

The beaches

Cottesloe Beach.
Cottesloe Beach is one of the most popular and picturesque in the area.

With its Indian Ocean setting, Perth boasts some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. There are gorgeous stretches of white sand fringing turquoise waters in many locations such as Scarborough and the picturesque Cottesloe, where the ‘Fremantle Doctor’ breeze cools the air. You can sunbathe to your heart’s content here or take to the waves for some swimming or surfing. Alternatively, a gentle evening stroll is the perfect way to enjoy those breathtaking Indian Ocean sunsets.

On top of this a short ferry trip takes you to Rottnest Island, with its array of secluded bays, and venturing north up the coast brings you the spectacular Ningaloo Reef.

The wineries
