A modern metropolis of glassy skyscrapers, waterside boulevards, and lush residential neighborhoods, Perth sits on the edge of the Swan Coastal Plain.
Family-friendly places like Dolphin & Whale Watching and Swan River will thrill your kids. Change things up with these side-trips from Perth: Zig Zag Scenic Drive (in Gooseberry Hill), Rockingham (Penguin Island & Rockingham Beach) and Fremantle (Fremantle Prison, Fremantle Markets, &more). There's lots more to do: admire the natural beauty at Kings Park and Botanic Garden, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Perth Zoo, get in on the family fun at Adventure World, and identify plant and animal life at Caversham Wildlife Park.
