Cottesloe Beach

This is a beach suburb around 15 minutes away from Perth and is among the best places in the world to see the sun setting over the Indian Ocean. The crystal clear waters also make it a terrific place to swim, surf or go snorkeling. The town is very famous for its relaxed lifestyle, cafes, and Sunday sessions during which locals come to the beachfront bars and watch the sunset over a few drinks.

The Greenhouse Restaurant

If you are looking for a good restaurant in Perth, this is among the best destinations around. The building itself is interesting, and the concept focuses on operating a better place for people. The entire place has been geared towards sustainability. The outside is covered with corrugated iron and a vertical garden with more than 4000 terracotta pots. The ceiling and walls are made from 420 straw bales, and there’s a rooftop garden which provides vegetables for the kitchen. The place uses recycled furniture. The food quality is outstanding.

A Walking Tour

Perth has been made for walking. It is flat, has wide footpaths and streets, and this is the best way for you to visit a new destination. It is a terrific way of soaking up local culture and getting a feel for a place. You can get some wonderful tips from the locals too.


The sunsets in Perth are fabulous. There are very few places where you can watch the sun set over the ocean and Perth is one of them. Choose a beachside cafe or a pub and enjoy a breathtaking view of the sun calling it a night.

Rottnest Island

This island is 18 km off the coast of Perth. It is a premier getaway with more than sixty picturesque bays and beaches. The best way to explore it is on a bicycle. The island is a car-free zone which makes it an enjoyable and relaxing experience. Some of the other things to do on the island include golf, fishing, tennis, snorkeling, swimming, diving, kayaking, etc.
