Arrive into Western Australia’s sunny capital city to spend the next 5 nights. Situated along the Swan River and famed for its blue skies, extraordinary setting and laid-back atmosphere, Perth is the perfect city to spend your days strolling around the many shops, bars and restaurants. Enjoy the magnificent views from Kings Park, relax on the white sandy beaches, or if time permits head out of the city to enjoy the surrounding regions.
