Holiday In Perth

Do you like sunsets, food, drinking and chocolate? Of course you do. While you might think you have these things in your town, please don’t be offended when we say Perth just does them better.
This city definitely “goes big” in more ways than one, and you can explore them all on a Perth holiday. Dig in!

Things to Do in Perth

Locals and travellers agree there’s really only one place to start your getaway: Kings Park! (Or the beach. We’ll get to that later.) Wanna borna? Nope, we’re not asking if you want something. It means “digging stick”, and that’s just one thing you’ll learn along the park’s walking paths. For a different sort of scene, book Perth packages at Cottesloe Beach and take in the teeny bikinis and windswept surfer hair. You can post up all day and party all night, without even changing your outfit.

You may not think of jail when you imagine your ideal getaway, but 3 million visitors can’t be wrong. At Fremantle Prison, grab a murderous macchiato in the Convict Cafe to fuel up for your tour. If you’re free of heart conditions, take an eerie night tour, guided only by torchlight (and ghosts). Well, that got dark. Here’s a way to lighten up: Swim with wild dolphins! Hop in one of lastminute.com.au’s awesome Perth car hire deals to get to Shoalwater Islands Marine Park, 45 km south. You know you want dolphin selfies.

Shopping, Dining & Nightlife

A holiday isn’t a holiday if you don’t come home with at least one extra suitcase full of new stuff, and a holiday in Perth can fill that suitcase and then some. The Hay Street Mall in the centre of town is a one-stop shop for brand names, stylish boutiques and upside-down statue photo ops (you’ll see). On Saturdays, check out the Farmers Market in East Perth to get some biodynamic macadamia nuts in your life. They might sound like they’ll give you super powers, but they’re really just tasty.

It’s no mistake “foodie” and “Fremantle” start with the same letter. This southern neighbourhood can satisfy any palate, from fresh seafood near the port to the food trucks and open-air markets near Kings Square. If you like expertly paired wine and chocolate (and who doesn’t), head the opposite direction to the wineries of Swan Valley. Here, there’s nothing wrong with eating an entire cheese plate for dinner, so chow down.

What do you get when you combine intense love of coffee with an equal love for drinking? More espresso martini choices than you can shake a cocktail pick at. Perth’s nightlife is way more than your standard pub-and-grub scene; mixology thrives here, and it’s got the trendy bars and clubs to prove it. Perth package deals near Saint Georges Terrace downtown can get you started. Once you’ve got a buzz on, it’s a quick cab ride to Northbridge to continue the party in the nightclubs.

I liked its location. The only issue is we booked a family of 5 for a week and there was only a small bin provided and no instructions on how to empty out or where to take our excess rubbish. In the end i found the bins on the ground floor behind a fence
