It’s true what they say: Perth has a beach for everyone. Hipsters, bros and yes, “clothing optional” types will all find their stretch of sand in Western Australia’s capital (hint: If that last one isn’t you, steer clear of Swanbourne).
Hop aboard cheap flights to Perth and get ready to party with the sandgropers. It’ll be more fun than it sounds based on that nickname—we promise.
Getting Around Perth
It’s an easy 10km trip to the city centre once flights to Perth Airport (PER) touch down. There’s an airport shuttle that runs to some of the popular accommodation in Perth, and several bus routes serving downtown. From there, trains, buses and taxis have you covered…or do as the locals do and go by bike!
When You Land…
Don’t worry, early birds. You don’t have to do anything but sit in Kings Park with a latte and a muffin. Take your first skyline snaps for your Insta and just kick back.
Those on afternoon Perth flights can get down on some kangaroo action, up close and personal. Perth Zoo has a path where they roam free as…well, free kangaroos.
Landing after dark? If you’ve got a strong heart, take the Fremantle Prison Torchlight Tour. Learn about Moondyne Joe, sentenced to 10 years for stealing cheese (we can sort of relate—cheese is delicious). Or just hang out at a beach bar with a beer. Up to you.
Live Like a Local
We’d never leave you hanging on which beach to go to. You’re in Australia’s sunniest capital! Hit South Beach in Fremantle or North Cottesloe Beach to escape the crowds and soak up vitamin D like a local.
Don’t be a bogan. lastminute.com.au’s Perth holiday packages are the koots. Book your airfare and hotel in one go, plus save tons more than you would on those other sites. More cash for beer? Yes please!
