DISCOVER PERTH

Sitting pretty on the shores of the Swan River, Australia’s sunniest capital city effortlessly blends urban cool with raw natural beauty.

Western Australia’s capital city Perth is consistently rated as one of the world’s most liveable cities, where its spectacular natural surroundings are rivalled only by its vibrant city life. Having undergone a major transformation in recent times, here you’ll find an exciting mix of new hotels, bars, restaurants and public precincts.

Perth’s state-of-the-art, multi-award winning 60,000 seat Optus Stadium opened to applause in 2018, and has hosted sell-out sporting and music events. Home to the Australian Football League (AFL) in WA, Optus Stadium is a multi-purpose venue designed to also host cricket, rugby union and rugby league, soccer, athletics and music concerts.

Within an hour of Perth’s CBD you can capture a quokka selfie at the idyllic Rottnest Island, tantalise your tastebuds in the Swan Valley or Perth Hills wine regions, swim with dolphins at Rockingham, discover a bohemian lifestyle in the eclectic port city of Fremantle, or enjoy the string of pristine beaches that line Perth’s metropolitan coastline.
