Escape to Rottnest Island – a car-free island accessible by ferry, helicopter, or private boat. Opportunities are many, to relax on one of more than 60 beaches, snorkel above coral reefs, or dive down to shipwrecks. And don’t forget to introduce yourself to the island’s most popular inhabitant, the quokka, a tiny marsupial found only in Western Australia.
Meander downquirky Wolf Lane for an eclectic collection of cafés, bars and boutiques. Pay a visit to suburban Subiaco, which resembles a European village, or explore vintage and antique shops along Leederville’s Oxford Street. For fashionable finds and exciting nightlife, Northbridge won’t disappoint.
Fremantle Harbour, just thirty minutes from Perth’s centre by train, reveals the inhabitants’ past tales through its architecture. Discover colonial remnants like Fremantle Prison, the Arts Centre, and Old Courthouse. Visit the Maritime Museum and Shipwreck Galleries to view relics from sea life , and end the day at the landmark Sail and Anchor – with one of the 43 tap beers on offer.
The small bar movement in Perth has grown substantially with many of the quaint establishments popping up. Sample wine and tapas at Andaluz, join the cool crowd at The Aviary, or go for a vintage feel at Hula Bula, with its tiki décor and retro cocktails. Helvetica and 399 Bar are spots not to miss in the city, while Ezra Pound Bar and The Bird Wine Bar are the favourites of Northbridge.
Picturesque beaches are aplenty in Perth. Stop by funky Scarborough Beach for café treats at Wild Fig or Kinky Lizard, before taking to the waves at Trigg or North beaches. Take shade under Norfolk Pines for a picnic, and watch the sunset across the waters of Cottesloe Beach.
