Most cities in the world cannot claim a 400 hectare green space close to the heart of the city, but Perth is not most cities. Kings Park and Botanic Gardens is only 1.5 km from the Perth CBD and the place where you are going to start your Perth adventure. Head straight to the Zamia Café in Kings Park, which is well known for two things: the freshness and range of the food on offer and the fact that it is completely energy efficient and makes use of innovative environmentally friendly technology.

When you have a full tummy, it is time to visit another landmark in the park, the tree top walk. The 52 metre high walk takes you through the tops of a eucalypt forest and affords spectacular views of the city and the Swan River.

When you are starting to feel a little peckish head for the Old Swan Brewery to fill your tummy. The building, which was constructed in 1879, is one of the most instantly recognisable landmarks of the city and is now home to a delightful café and micro brewery. As you take in the malt ale or lager that is produced there take a sticky beak at the historic photos and memorabilia that is on display there. After lunch, when you have allowed it to digest just a little, you are going to head to South Perth for an adrenaline rush. Parasailing on the Swan River has got to be one of the most exhilarating ways to catch a glimpse of the city. From 300 ft up in the air you will enjoy remarkable vistas of the city with the wind in your hair and butterflies in your stomach. read more about Perth.

 

The beaches around Perth are spellbinding, so go west in search of an Indian Ocean bathing spot and you will not be disappointed. One of the most popular beaches in the vicinity is Cottesloe Beach, which attracts people for swimming, surfing and snorkelling. In between water sports, you can enjoy browsing the nearby shops or grab a quick coffee at a beach side café. Scarborough Beach is popular with those looking for a more upbeat vibe – it is a firm favourite for surfers with great wave breaks and when the sun goes down has a vibrant nightlife. If you fancy an isolated spot where you will not have to share the beach with many other beachgoers, you should head to Floreat Beach for some excellent swimming, body surfing and fishing.

Since Perth enjoys year round sunshine and a pleasant climate, it makes sense to enjoy more than just your dining in an alfresco setting. All around Perth there are outdoor cinemas that show classics and latest releases on outdoor screens. One of the most popular is the Movies at Burswood, which opens its doors at 6:30 for screenings starting at 8pm. You can pre-order your picnic dinner or choose from light meals and snacks upon arrival. The venue is fully licenses too, so you can enjoy a glass of wine or a cold beer as you sit back to watch the flick.

The laid back vibe of Perth makes it a relaxing and enjoyable place to spend your holiday. It also acts as the gateway to the rest of Western Australia, which provides tourists with a unique and impressive blend of exciting outdoors activities and incredible natural wonders. If you are yet to discover the flipside of the continent, then it is about time that you did with Perth as your first stop on the itinerary.
