City of Light

A modern metropolis of glassy skyscrapers, waterside boulevards, and lush residential neighborhoods, Perth sits on the edge of the Swan Coastal Plain.
Kids will enjoy Kings Park and Botanic Garden and Dolphin & Whale Watching. Change things up with a short trip to Fremantle Prison in Fremantle (about 32 minutes away). There's still lots to do: find something for the whole family at Adventure World, contemplate the waterfront views at Swan River, get great views at Elizabeth Quay, and pause for some photo ops at State War Memorial.
