Perth has all the hallmarks of a tourist destination as well as a homely ambience for relaxation. Recommend choosing your hotel wisely and not just on price and location but make sure to review credible comments, don't just look at the first few as I did and end up with a very bad experience, research reputation more thoroughly as there is a capacity for very rude and aggressive service.
Perth has a laid back feel to it and I always feel relaxed when I get to visit. The beaches and Kings Park are beautiful, the shopping doesnt appear to be a lot different to many other cities and the international sports that are played here are great.
There are heaps of things to do
The attractions are scattered at north, south and Perth CBD so you really need to rent a car. The parking rate in Perth CBD is so expensive, so maybe you need to opt for free CAT bus if you planning to go around the Perth city.
The shops are mostly close at 5pm and open during weekends only (like Fremantle market and E-shed) so plan your itinerary wisely.The people is nice and helpful.
Clean tidy city. Very helpful Cat drivers and hosts. Also the Perth subway was great as we were trying to work out the directions of platforms a female staff member assisted us even before we we know we needed help.
Perth is the capital of Western Australia and is Australia’s fourth largest city. Perth is so far away from the rest of Australia it’s sometimes difficult to remember that it is part of the same country.
If they are short of anything over there, its workers to keep it all going. So these days, prices in Perth are more in line with the rest of Australia. The city itself is located on the banks of the Swan River, which is quite wide in places. But if you want sandy beaches then you’ll need to travel around 10 km west from the city where you will find the Indian Ocean. Waterman Beech, North Beach, South Trigg Beach, Scarborough Beach, Brighton Beach, Floreat Beach, City Beach, Swanbourne Beach, Cottesloe Beach, Mosman Beach, Leighton Beach and Port Beach, to name just a few.
It is a vibrant city with various activities for different type of travel interests, but if you like outdoor and sightseeing, this is definitely the city to visit.
Within the city centre there are a few attractions to visit for e.g. Perth mint, Bell tower, WA museum (closed from June 2016, and reopened in 2020), King's Park.
Shopping is reasonable at the Perth CBD, but not too good at the Watertown outlet. Absolutely love the free bus rides along the 4 different routes within the city. Not really necessary to take the sightseeing explorer bus. Fremantle is a must-do when at Perth to get a glimpse of the port city. Good for seafood and a visit to Fremantle prison is great.
Perth is a peaceful, quiet city, no happening nightlife, not many fancy restaurant but if you're just up for relaxation this is the city you might want to visit.
my first trip to perth so i have nothing much to share but i do notice there are a lot of vineyards outside of perth which is worth visiting and beaches as well.
have not really explore the shopping areas but kings park has a beautiful view and very relaxing.
Shopping in City and suburban malls, esp the supermarkets are great. A visit to swan valley is great to get margaret river chocs and honey and nougats and nuts.
.. the closest you can get to margaret river region.
Visit to Fremantle in the suburb is something refreshing. They have nice harbour view, old historical buildings and most of all is their famous fish and chips.
It is a nice city with quite a number of things to visit and eat. I would recommend checking out some restaurants by searching on their rating online.
The reviews are usually quite accurate. The food can be quite expensive (about USD30 a meal). The serving is usually quite generous and it is really nice! Enjoy good seafood and beef.
Perth is not a very busy City and not much thing to do compare in Melbourne and Sydney but it has a great potential to be a great city in the future.
There are a lot of new development such as new stadium, hotels, apartments...
It was tough for a vegetarian in term of food choices. Moving around in taxi is expensive. Might as well rent a car if staying for a few days.
Parking for caravan in the city area is not recommended. Something to note for those who are renting motorhomes to tour the surrounding region. Most shops close at 5pm, so start your day early.
Very laid-back city, though I would recommend exploring more places outside CBD. The western part are all beautiful beaches ideal for summer.
Much more convenient if you drive but otherwise there are plenty of buses around. Buses #98 and #99 go in circular direction and will take you around many more places in Perth.
This is a really nice city. Clean and easy to get around. Downtown the buses are actually free! They call it the (FTZ) free transit zone.
Parking is very expensive considering if you have to visit places of interest in the city like at bell tower and the botanical gardens
The annual Royal Perth Show at Claremount Showgrounds succinctly showcases describes the spectrum of lifestyles in Western Australia.
There's different breeds of livestock, like sheep, poultry, cats, dogs, pigs, emu, llamas, birds, cattle, you could touch, feel and see up close. There's a variety of food produce and natural products. Its child-friendly with wood chopping competitions and equestrian events in the sprightly spring air. There's enough to eat, ride thrilling rides, ponder on history, farm equipment, and handcrafts. A representation of what the state is about.
too many street people, could be cleaner. need more rubbish bins. rail is good. give your city a good wash and it would look nicer.
Perth is relatively small, but it's good to spend 1-2 days there. It's also worth visiting the surrounding town called Framentle.
People are nice and friendly. The view from Kings Park is really beautiful!
Perth is a very beautiful city. I have traveled most of the world's great cities and I would put Perth at the top of the list.
Take in King's Park, bus tours of both Perth and nearby Freemantle. Take a cruise in the bay and a trip to Rottnest. It's all top notch.
Perth isnt a large city by any means but is a very pretty city, with Kings Park and the Swan river right on the door step.
My family enjoys the trip here. Visiting Swan Valley will be difficult to access using public bus. Advisable to rent a car
Make sure to go see; "The Pinnacles, Kings Park, Rottnest Island, Perth Zoo, Aquarium, Markets, and many more places.
easy to get around with great public transport. New waterfront development will be excellent when completed in Nov.
Kings Park worth a visit for gardens, picnics, walks and views across Perth. Nice areas and beaches to Nth and Sth if you have a car to explore. Cold in Winter, warming up now - end of Sept.
Crown Metropole Hotel. Their per game bet is small and you can easily spend an hour there, gambling responsibily.
Perth was lovely. We found the city to be extremely clean, not overly-populated and very easy to get around.
Kings Park was beautiful; a real gem in the heart of the city!
My wife and I went there for 13 days (free and easy) and enjoyed the Nature and sightseeing of the wildlife.
Is a MUST to have a car for you to explore Perth. There are many activities you can do in the morning and afternoon, but when come to night, it was definitely a boring period to endure for us whom came from Singapore. Be adventurous and just explore!!!!
Without transport, many nice places can't go. Out of city many attraction places to scenery or sight seeing.
