Taking up the entire western third of Australia, Western Australia is a smooth blend of beauty and culture. Fringed by stunning, white sand beaches and colourful coral reefs, and carpeted with combed, world-class vineyards and ochre expanses of outback, this is one little corner of the world that is just waiting for you to explore it.

Australia's sunniest capital city stands in the south-west of Western Australia, between the rolling turquoise waves of the Indian Ocean and the Darling Scarp. With countless restaurants, museums, art galleries, parks and guided tours, all wrapped up in a famously friendly attitude, it comes as no surprise that Perth was named the world's 9th most liveable city.

Lose yourself in this vibrant state and devour all that it has to offer. From guided tours around haunted old prisons in Fremantle, to surfing lessons in Margaret River and weekend trips to the famous Rottnest Island; visitors to Western Australia are offered a smorgasbord of once-in-a-lifetime experiences which will forever be happily inscribed into their memories.

Best time to go

Visits to Perth are best timed in spring (March - April) or autumn (October-November) to avoid both the summer heat and winter downpours. Temperatures in autumn and spring average in the high twenties during the day and rarely drop below ten degrees at night.

Things to do

Western Australia leaves behind the fervent, touristy bustle of the east coast, and adopts a laid back attitude and a firm focus on the amazing beaches, beautiful sunsets, and thriving wildlife that the region boasts.

Animal lovers will be delighted with the range of activities that the state offers; take a trip to Perth Zoo or Caversham Wildlife Park, snorkel with playful, wild dolphins in Rockington or Monkey Mia, go on a scenic horse trail around Moore River or the Perth Hills, or scuba dive into the kaleidoscopic, teeming marine world of Ningaloo Reef.

For a sample of the region's pristine beaches - along with their water sports and surfing - relax on the 22km of sun, sea and sand at Cable Beach or visit Australia's whitest beach - Lucky Bay. Often find yourself lost in a desert island daydream? Bring it to life when you take a boat trip over to Penguin Island with a delicious picnic and a strong sense of adventure.

Food & drink

Those visiting Perth will be blown away by the fresh local flavours that the city's restaurants showcase. Try the region's world-class wines, increasingly popular boutique breweries, and highly-prized black truffles.

With more restaurants per capita than any other Australian city, you'll be spoilt for choice when sampling Perth's cuisine. As with many Australian cities, Perth's cuisine focuses on modern Australian tastes with authentic Asian influences. To enjoy a spectacular rose and gold sunset over Swan River while dining on a delicious 28-day aged sirloin steak, pay a visit to Bluewater Grill in Applecross, and for a special occasion, Print Hall Dining Room's understated elegance and award-winning, concentrated, perfected menu will delight even the pickiest of gourmet diners.

Margaret's River Wine Region hosts over 100 wineries, many of which are paired with restaurants serving world-class dishes to compliment and be complimented by their Sauvignon Blancs, Chardonnays and Shirazs.

In the evening

Whether you want to party 'til dawn or wind down for another exciting day of sightseeing, Perth's nightlife will cater to your needs. Slip on those glitzy dancing shoes and totter down to James Street to throw some serious shapes in Perth's top nightclubs, or try your luck at roulette in the sleek rooms of Crown Perth Casino. For something a little more chilled out, take a picnic and a few cold beers and curl up under the twinkling stars on a huge, squishy beanbag in King's Park Moonlight Cinema. You'll find everything from Breakfast at Tiffany's, to The Rocky Horror Picture Show, to brand new feature films playing at this outdoor cinema. You're bound to find an excuse to visit during your stay in Perth!
