Sports fans will also find something to do on their trip to Perth, where you can watch Australian football or cricket at the Optus Stadium. This 60 000-seat stadium is one of Perth’s greatest prides.

Excursions from Perth to nearby areas

Beach lovers should head to the Margaret River area as part of a trip to Perth. It’s about 300 kilometres from Perth, but it’s well worth the drive, as the Margaret River is home to some of Australia’s most best vineyards as well as stunning beaches. As well as winery visits, you can also explore limestone caves, spot whales, relax on a yoga retreat or try surfing.

Margaret river, Australia

From Perth, it’s possible to do a one-day trip to the Margaret River, but be aware that it will be a long day: leaving early in the morning and returning late in the evening.

If you want to see the beautiful green scenery from the skies on your Perth trip, head to the Avon Valley for a hot air balloon flight over the historic city.

On Rottnest Island you can see happy quokkas

Rottnest Island is only about a 30-minute ferry ride from Perth, making it an easy day trip. The island is a nature reserve and therefore there are a limited number of cars on the island. You can hire a bike or explore the island on foot. Alternatively, group tours are available in the form of Segway rides. With a staggering 63 beaches, you’re sure to find one to your liking.

Quokka, Rottnest Island, Australia

The island of Rottnest is known above all for its cute quokka marsupials. Quokka are very friendly and curious animals, and photographing them is certainly the most popular activity on the island. There is also plenty to do on the island, where you can go whale watching, snorkelling, diving, kayaking or enjoy a delicious lunch.

Public transport in Perth

Perth has an extensive public transport network, with convenient access to trains, ferries and buses. Trains and CAT buses are free in the city centre. Also note that the central area only covers the CBD and for trains you need a SmartRider card.
