An inner city filled with character, upmarket fashion, contemporary galleries, cool coffee joints, award winning cuisines and various activities, Perth is a vibrant, energetic city that offers a truly inimitable Western Australian experience and many local attractions.
Check out what's on in Perth's cultural and entertainment centre, Northbridge, buzzing with countless cafes, restaurants, bars, shops, cultural events, festivals and activities for all ages. Uncover stories about the culture of Aboriginal people and the State's flora, fauna and biodiversity at Western Australian Museum. Channel your artsy side with historic and contemporary art displays at the Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts and The Art Gallery of Western Australia. Marvel at the collection of natural gold nuggets, wafers and crystals at the historic Perth Mint.

If you are an animal lover, check out what's on at Rockingham's Shoalwater Marine Park. In the right conditions, it is possible to cross from the shore to Penguin Island by walking over the sandbar. On the island you can visit the small population of Little Penguins. At high tide or in harsher weather, there are always boats available to and from the penguins' home. The nearby Seal Island offers a similar experience and the diversity of WA's marine life can be surprising.
Just beyond Kalamunda, the Bickley Valley Wine Trail offers ten different and acclaimed wineries. These rolling orchards produce some of the best wine that West Australia has to offer. Check out what's on as the roads are often lined with the stalls and wares of local fruit growers whose fresh produce alone would be an excuse to visit. As well, why not take a camel tour which will give a whole new perspective to your outing. However you spend your time, this area of Perth promises a great day out!
