Introduction

Western Australia's often-overlooked capital, Perth, has a style all of its own: a mix of laidback lifestyle, vibrant cafe culture, city and parklands and famed local beaches.

The banks of the mighty Swan River offer you a great picnic spot to enjoy the central cityscape and nearby Darling Ranges or you could take a walk in the city's many parklands.

To discover nature, visit the brilliant landscaped gardens and aboriginal heritage of the King's Park and take a walk on the Bushland Nature Trail or explore the rich diversity of West Australian wildflowers in the Botanic Gardens. To see native animals up close and in their wild habitat visit the Karakamia Wildlife Sanctuary.

When you've enjoyed all Perth has to offer, consider a wine tasting tour in the picturesque Swan Valley. Many of the 40-plus vineyards are still run by the original families who started them many years ago.

The nearby historic port of Fremantle is even more relaxed and has bustling weekend markets and many designer fashion boutiques and aboriginal crafts shops.

A short ferry ride from the mainland is tranquil, car-free Rottnest Island. A popular holiday destination for visitors and locals alike, there is fantastic diving on vibrant coral reefs and historic shipwrecks and you can spot wild seals, whales, dolphins and the island's quirky mascot, the Quokka.
