Perth Holiday Destination
The sunny city of Perth, capital of Western Australia, is a great holiday destination with accommodation options to suit all tastes and budgets. Cheap Perth hotels are in abundance as stiff competition keeps prices down.
You’ll find all the essential ingredients for a fantastic holiday in Perth, from some of Australia’s finest beaches to nightlife, great markets, leafy parks, alfresco dining by the Swan River and a wide range of watersports including boating, fishing and surfing.
Perth is also in easy reach of some of Western Australia’s major attractions. The neighbouring port city of Fremantle is famed for its majestic historic architecture and marine heritage and is only a short ferry ride from Perth.
Also, accessible by ferry is lovely Rottnest Island, known locally as “Rotto”, with more than 60 pristine beaches, tranquil bays with crystal clear waters and wonderful wildlife, including the very cute quokka. Hire a bike to cycle around the car-free island.
More incredible beaches stretch from Perth’s famous Cottesloe Beach up the coast towards Lancelin, a mecca for windsurfing and sand-boarding enthusiasts.
For stunning views of the Swan River, the city and the Darling escarpment, head to Kings Park, Perth’s lush green heart, and wander among the treetops along the Federation Walkway.
Take a day trip to the south of Perth to Rockingham and Mandurah for dolphins, dining on the foreshore and excellent crabbing. The winding inland waterways of this region are perfect for messing around in boats.
Inland from Perth lays the Swan Valley, a great place to sample local produce, visit premium wineries and browse art galleries. It’s worth timing your visit with the annual spring in the Valley festival.
Further east are the forests of the forested Darling Range, the Avon Valley and the historic towns of York and Toodyay. For a unique experience, visit New Norcia, Australia’s only monastic town, famed for its Spanish Colonial architecture, wood-fired bakery, award-winning olive oil and art gallery.
After a day out exploring you’ll return to your cheap Perth accommodation hankering for more!
