Perth is Australia’s fourth-largest city, yet its sprawling geography, meandering river and seaside suburbs, including the popular Fremantle, allow it to maintain its small-town feel. The city has a laid-back, friendly charm that visitors find very appealing, making this isolated capital a hugely popular destination. In Perth, life is best lived outdoors – take a picturesque cruise along the Swan River, cool off with a swim at Cottesloe Beach, browse the stalls at Fremantle Market before tucking into delectable seafood by the harbour. Go wine tasting in the Swan Valley or take a day trip to Rottnest Island where you will see all manner of Australian wildlife.
Popular Tailor-made Perth Holiday Itineraries
Our tailor-made holidays are so much more than a package holiday or tour. And while you’ll get flights, accommodation, transfers and even some in-destination transport as standard, you’ll also be guaranteed a truly unique, authentic and diverse taste of Perth, and the destinations that surround it. Take the South West Highlights Journey for example – where you’ll be sampling award-winning wines along the Margaret River one day, and then taking selfies with a cute quokka on Rottnest Island the next. If that’s not enough, these holidays can be tailored by our Experts to suit exactly what you want.

When to Go to Perth
Perth’s climate brings hot summers and mild winters, with a reasonable amount of rain, especially in winter. But the best news is that Perth receives around 3,200 hours of sunshine every year – that’s over eight hours a day – making it the sunniest of Australia’s capitals. For something special, time your visit to the spring months of September to November when migrating humpback whales can be seen off the coast of Perth.
