5 Things Not To Miss In Perth


Australia is a nation of many parts, and while Melbourne and Sydney might get more of the attention, there’s plenty you’ll miss out on if you don’t make Perth part of your holiday itinerary. While taking care of the motorhome hire is certainly a very important early step, it isn’t the only one. For the adventurous traveller on holiday who wants the true Australia experience, you’ll want to make sure to include this top five locations in Perth to complete your Aussie experience!


King’s Park and Botanic Garden


This free garden is a popular Perth attraction, and for good reason. Containing top notch views of both the Darling Range as well as scenic sections of the Swan River, King’s Park & Botanic Garden is a remarkably beautiful oasis right in the heart of a busy city. Even more interesting is the sheer number of plants on the 1,000 acre park that are native to Australia in general and the area in particular. In fact, over 2/3 of the plants in the garden are native locally and the garden acts as a conservation project for localized area in addition to having plants from other climates.


Plenty of walking trails, ponds, and beautiful break areas make King’s Park a true winner when visiting Perth. Make sure you also take the time to get a really incredible birds’ eye view by exploring the Lotterywest Federation Walkway, a decorated walkway of incredible engineering and art helping you see all that there is on display in this remarkable attraction. This walkway might only be a touch over 300 meters long, but it brings an entirely new appreciation of an already remarkable visit.


Visit the Stunning Sunny Beaches


There is a seemingly endless stream of articles about the amazing beaches of Australia, and while many are talking about famous Gold Coast locations around Sydney, truth is that Perth’s beaches definitely hold up as being some of the best in all of Australia.


Are you looking for great surfing beaches? Great swimming beaches? Do you not care as long as there is nice sand, friendly people, and beautiful sunny weather? Whatever your preferences, there are plenty of beaches around Perth that will meet your needs from Point Walter to Trigg Point to the popular City Beach for family travel.


Once you have a nice spot picked out and your motorhome hire figured out then it’s time to get some sun, sand, and surf by hitting those Perth beaches! There are few experiences that are more naturally Australian than enjoying a beach day on the coast.

The zoo is easily accessible by bus, car, train, and bike, and visitors can also hop aboard a ferry from Barrack Street jetty.


Western Australian Museum (Perth Cultural Centre)
