Welcome To Perth : The Jewel of Western Australia

Native aborigines had always populated Perth, the largest city of Western Australia, but it received its first influx of foreigners in 1829, after being founded by Sir James Stirling of the Royal British Navy.

By the late 18th century, everyone was flocking there, seeking riches after word spread of gold being found. It was also a settlement area for convicts from the United Kingdom and served as a World War 2 base for aircraft and submarines.

After the fighting was over, many immigrants flooded the area making it one of the most populated regions in Australia. These days, it is a popular destination for both foreign and domestic visitors.

Quirky Fact

Perth became known as the "City of Lights" when residents lit their houses as an astronaut passed over; John Glen in 1962 on the Friendship 7 spaceship and again on the Space Shuttle in 1998. 

When to Visit

The region receives most of its rainfall during the months of May to August. The months of October to March receives the most sunshine when temperatures can reach as high as 46 centigrade.

Interesting Places to Visit in Perth

Kings Park

The 1000-acre park that is bigger than the famous central park in New York receives more than 5 million visitors a year giving testament to its range of activities on offer. As well as hosting Australia’s largest wildflower show in September, activities on offer all year round include the botanical gardens, the Lottery West family area, and a network of walking trails. See more on their website.

Freemantle Prison

Called the establishment by the prisoner John Roe, Fremantle prison is an interesting insight into this now defunct government building that housed convicts from 1852 to 1991. Five guided tours take visitors to see the cells, tunnels, courtyards, firing ranges and chapels and the best and worst of living history. Classed as Australia’s main maximum-security prison for more than 90 years, National Geographic famously labelled it the country’s hardest prison.

Swan Valley

As the oldest wine growing region in Western Australia, Swan Valley is a world of surprises with its many activities to do including wine and food tasting, art and craft shops, and walking, driving and cycling trails. Visit for a day but if you find that is not enough, book into their overnight accommodation to take advantage of their river cruises, coach tours or horse-driven wagon rides

Perth Zoo

Running since 1898, Perth Zoo is a strong contender for Australian and international wildlife conservation. Don’t conjure up images though of old-fashioned zoos because their mission statement says...

“Our purpose as an organisation is to actively contribute to conservation. This is done through our research activities, support for wildlife projects, and our animal breeding programs particularly breeding animals for release into the wild, wildlife rehabilitation, and partnerships with other groups and organisations. Perth Zoo also actively contributes to conservation through the work of its staff in field conservation, wildlife veterinary training, education programs, and interpretation”

With animals and plants from all over the globe including Asia, Africa, and South America, Perth Zoo is the ideal family day out.

The Aquarium of Western Australia

Formerly called Underwater World, this establishment prides themselves on 25 years of excellence in marine aquarium design. Aiming to keep people captive and not animals, visitors are introduced to numerous coral and underwater species from the 12,000 kilometres of Western Australia’s coastline. They can also put on a wetsuit and walk in among a replica coral reef, therefore, enhancing the practical experience of underwater life.

Excellent Experience

It all went really smoothly. 1st time I have hired a car. My only very minor comments is that there were features that I could not work out how to operate since the car was so new - opening the back to get into the boot and the extremely odd new-look designed "hand" break. I had to ring and then go back to the booking desk to ask how to work them. And I had to do it twice. Booking, payment, pick up were all really great. Ladies at the desk very nice.
