Whale Watching

Between May and December, humpback, southern right and blue whales make their way along WA's coast, often coming so close to shore. The best time to observe these magnificent creatures of the ocean is midday, when the sun is directly overhead. 
If you're lucky, you can even see them while having breakfast or lunch at the alfresco area in Pullman Bunker Bay.

Rottnest Island

Famous for its laid back atmosphere and beautiful beaches, Rottnest Island lies just 18 kilometres offshore from Perth surrounded by the sparkling Indian Ocean. This is where the locals go to swim, surf, snorkel, fish and relax. 
Surrounded by coral reefs and shipwrecks, the diving and snorkelling is out-of-this-world. Rotto is a car-free zone and hiring a bicycle is the best way to get around. There's also the local Bayseeker bus that regularly runs around the island and can drop you at some of the more secluded beaches and surf breaks. There are 20 bays to choose from, meaning you can often find a stretch of sand all to yourself.

 

Fremantle
Fremantle is a 30 minute drive or a 30 minute train ride from Perth city.

Against a backdrop of the best preserved 19th century port streetscape in the world, a day out in Fremantle is an eclectic and eccentric blend of fabulous artisanal food, handcrafted beers, great coffee, quirky boutiques and a lively music, arts and festival scene. On arrival, grab a sidewalk table on Fremantle's bustling ‘Cappuccino Strip’, ponder the impossibly long list of coffee options and do some people watching. Or go in search of some of Fremantle’s delectable baked goods for breakfast or brunch.

If you’re in Fremantle on a Friday, Saturday, Sunday (or even Monday if it's a public holiday), step into the iconic Fremantle Markets. For over 100 years, its hall has been filled with exotic aromas, fresh produce, fashion, live music, performance art, crafts and Indigenous art.

 

Kings Park
One of the largest inner-city parks in the world, Kings Park and Botanic Garden covers 400 hectares of Perth's heart with serene natural bushland and sculpted gardens. It's perched high on the crest of Mount Eliza, making it a top spot to take in sweeping panoramas of Perth's city skyline and Swan River.

Pack a picnic or barbecue and take the 15 minute walk to Kings Park from Perth's centre, or hop on a free CAT bus. Pick up maps and brochures from the Visitor Information Centre, take a free guided walk or enjoy a self guided tour.
