Perth Holidays

Perth holidays encapsulate the real Australia; combining natural beauty with a bustling modern atmosphere. As the capital of Western Australia, it’s one of the most isolated cities in the world, which only seems to enhance the friendly welcome and laid back lifestyle it has to offer.

With its sandy beaches and the clear water of the Indian Ocean, this is a relaxing and unforgettable holiday destination for both couples and families. Being the sunniest of all the regional capitals, watersports and sunbathing are naturally part of most holidays in Perth. The high rise buildings and mix of architectural styles light up the city, while lively bars and funky restaurants give Perth a unique night time flavour. If you prefer to enjoy more natural surroundings, stunning coastlines and picturesque parks are waiting to be explored just a short distance from the centre.

A taste of Australia in Perth

The stunning ocean, beaches and landscapes steal the show, but Perth itself is buzzing with activity. Grand Lane has some amazing downtown contemporary street art, original shops and restaurants.  Eateries in the city serve an amazing variety of tapas, seafood and light salads. Be sure to head to Odyssea, one of the best restaurants in town, with incredible views and innovative modern Australian cuisine. 

Perth is the perfect starting point for a tour of western Australia.
