Perth, WA’s capital city, is Australia’s sunniest and boasts spectacular natural surroundings and a vibrant city life. Nestled between the sparkling Swan River and one of the world’s largest inner city parks – Kings Park and Botanic Garden – Perth is flourishing with new bars, restaurants, shopping and cultural spaces. Visitors can dine on fresh local produce, picnic in one of Australia’s oldest conservation areas, explore a world-class wine region, hop over to the island playground of Rottnest, or watch the sunset from one of 19 stunning white-sand beaches.
Fremantle, or ‘Freo’ as it’s known to locals is a cultural and creative melting pot. Located about 20 minutes’ drive from Perth city, Fremantle boasts the best preserved example of a 19thcentury port streetscape in the world. Spend the day exploring the city’s many galleries; browse the iconic Fremantle markets; unwind at one of the many cafes and restaurants; enjoy live music or check out some of the local designer labels.
