Flights to Perth
Perth has the distinction of being the world's most isolated capital city. Home to the indigenous Nyoongar people for more than 40,000 years, the modern city was established as the free settler Swan River Colony in 1829. But there's just so much to enjoy in Perth, the capital city of Western Australia. With laid-back weather and laid-back life, it presents an informal mix of seemingly never ending beaches like Cottesloe and big city attractions. The relatively gentle Mediterranean climate makes it an ideal year-round destination with easy access from the rest of Australia and across the world through the international airport, located just 15 minutes drive from the city.
Perth is the capital of Western Australia (WA) and is the fourth most populous city in Australia. The summertime months span from December to March and tend to be quite warm and dry. February is considered to be the warmest month and temperatures can reach upwards of 32 degrees Celsius. Generally the climate in Perth would be similar to that of the Mediterranean, although rainfall would be quite high in comparison.
Things to see and do in Perth
Perth is quite a large city and has so many wonderful attractions and amenities for tourists and locals alike. Here are just some of our favourites that we would recommend to anyone visiting the area:
- Perth Cultural Centre
- Kings Park – one of the largest inner city parks in the world, a great place to spend some quiet time away from the bustle of the city.
- Perth Zoo
- The West Australian Ballet
- The West Australian Opera
- The West Australia Symphony Orchestra
- Adventure World – a treat for the kiddies!
As much of the city's growth was during the 20th century, you won't find the Victorian architectural core that Australia's Eastern cities have. What you will find, though, is a charming and welcoming city with plenty to do both indoors and outside. Whether you're after cultural activities like the Maritime Museum, life on the water or dancing through the night at clubs in hotspots like Leederville and Subiaco, you'll find it here. If you're after some shopping treats, the finest local brews and delicacies, a sunkissed tan and white sandy beaches or some adventuring and exploration, Perth has a wealth of activities to offer.
