All about Perth

When to visit

Perth usually has a mild but wet winter, so most locals are breathing a sigh of relief by the time spring rolls around. Not only does September bring warmer weather, it’s also prime time to see wildflowers, with colorful displays popping up around the city and a month-long wildflower festival held in Kings Park. Summer is also Perth’s time to shine, with nearly 80 miles (125 kilometers) of beautiful Indian Ocean coastline to explore.

Getting around

Perth is one of those cities you can easily navigate by bicycle, bus, train, or car, depending on how far you want to go. Around the city center, public transport is a good option, with trains and buses out to some of Perth’s best attractions, including Elizabeth Quay, Perth Cultural Precinct, Northbridge, Scarborough, and Fremantle. However, if you want to cruise along the coastline, and enjoy the freedom of the open road, nothing beats renting a car and going exploring.

Traveler tips

For a city of its size, Perth is still very connected to nature. Around the city you’ll find an island filled with penguins, flower-dotted nature reserves, riverside parks, waterfalls, and even ancient caves that were once a hidden dancehall for the city’s elite. Lovers of the stars will also find two observatories, where you can join stargazing sessions led by Aboriginal elders and learn about the mysteries of the night sky told by the world’s first astronomers.
