A modern metropolis of glassy skyscrapers, waterside boulevards, and lush residential neighborhoods, Perth sits on the edge of the Swan Coastal Plain.
Popular historic sites such as Fremantle Prison and Leighton Battery Guns are in your itinerary. We've included these beaches for you: Cottesloe Beach and Mullaloo Beach. Get out of town with these interesting Perth side-trips: Fremantle (Fremantle Markets, The Fremantle Round House, &more), Zig Zag Scenic Drive (in Gooseberry Hill) and Dolphin & Whale Watching (in Mandurah). Dedicate the 20th (Tue) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. And it doesn't end there: steep yourself in history at The Perth Mint, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Perth Zoo, explore the world behind art at Art Gallery of Western Australia, and appreciate the history behind The Bell Tower.

For photos, other places to visit, ratings, and more tourist information, go to the Perth road trip site.
