When visiting Perth Western Australia we recommend not only do you visit the city of Perth but travel further to Freemantle, Rottnest Island, the Swan Valley and the Pinnacles.  Our guide lists our top 33 Perth Day tours by activity.

After visiting Perth many times over the years the city never fails to impress us.  One of our favourite things to do is to enjoy a ‘sundowner’ and watch the magnificent sunsets that Perth is famous for.  The city has a vibe to it.  Much smaller in population than Sydney and Melbourne, Perth wows the visitor with its cafe culture, its pubs, its beaches, its laid-back vibe and its weather.
