About PerthSituated right on the Swan River, the capital city of Western Australia is splendidly landscaped with parks & gardens, and has cleverly absorbed the demands of modern architecture without spoiling the natural beauty of its surroundings. The Mediterranean climate, sandy white beaches, proximity to the beautiful Darling Ranges and wide variety of outdoor recreations combine to make Perth a fantastic holiday destination. It is the State's centre for the arts, business, government and entertainment. There is an abundance of fabulous riverside and beachside restaurants and cafes, world-class golf courses, over 80 kilometres (50 miles) of white sandy beaches and plenty of accommodation to suit any budget. Perth is also the ideal base from which you can explore the diverse surrounding attractions. Only minutes away, you can visit wineries, swim with wild dolphins in their natural environment, explore Rottnest Island, or visit the colourful towns of Fremantle, Rockingham & Mandurah.
