Perth is the capital of the state of Western Australia. Located on the Swan River, in between the Indian Ocean and the Nullarbor Desert, it is considered one of the world's most remote cities. This make Perth the perfect place to get away from it all.
Once you have decided on an off-grid excursion, and booked the cheapest flights to Perth. You can reserve your rental car, get important information about your destination and discover the lowest prices on hotel accommodations. Here are some of the low prices on Perth Hotels we found today!
When we used Skyscanner's cheapest month search, we found out that the cheapest flights to Perth from the US were available for the months of September and October. This would be the Spring months in Australia, which are often warm and rainy. Many tourists prefer to travel to Australia during the Summer months of December and January.
The main airport serving Perth is Perth International Airport (PER). It is the fourth busiest airport in Australia and a hub for Qantas Airlines. PER is located approximately 5 miles from the city center of Perth.
While you can depend on taxis and hotel shuttles for some of your transport needs, rental cars are recommended if you plan on exploring the city and the surrounding areas. For the best prices, check out Skyscanner's rental car search.
Perth may be considered isolated, but still, boasts a busy night entertainment scene and active beach culture. For family-friendly excursions, head to Cottesloe. This town is brimming with surfers, swimmers, and snorkelers. Just north in Scarborough, you can find a lively club scene. Nature lovers will appreciate the opportunity to interact with various marsupials on Rottnest Island, which can be reached by ferry. Be sure to schedule some time to see the views from the peak at King's Park and take a stroll through the Botanic Gardens.
Perth is a beautiful city. The park along the river is great for running and I loved the pelicans and other birds that were around! There were dolphins in the river too! From Perth, take a trip to Rottnest island before jumping off to the rest of WA. There were some good rooftop bars as well and local coders to try! Be warned that it’s a tough place to find tourist activities if it’s raining for most of your trip.
Hospitality culture shattered from mining boom of 10yrs which drives the culture. Lack of people 1.5 mil in a huge country means space and wait a while for resources. Great for families and resting in a quiet theme and very Clear everything (too much as are the rules lol)
I grew up in Perth and returned here after living abroad, and in recent years it has really grown up as a city and is far from the boring, isolated town it used to be! It's still isolated, but has so much to do, lots of festivals happening all the time, amazing weather and lots of outdoor activities, and increasingly even good food (though a bit pricey - one downside!). But I love it!
Perth girl born and bred I love this place and have visited all the states in Australia and nothing beats it
