Fly into Perth and enjoy four nights in Australia’s sunniest capital city. Located on the banks of the Swan River, Perth is easy to get around and a joy to explore. There are museums and galleries, a lively entertainment area and magnificent Kings Park, with its superb Botanical Gardens and some great river views.

Just a 30 minute train ride away is the historic port of Fremantle, containing a busy marina, markets, and fine heritage buildings, including the World Heritage listed Fremantle Prison.

Nearby is magical Rottnest Island, home to the curious Quokka, a small marsupial found nowhere else in Australia. You can walk, cycle or catch a shuttle bus around the island, which is reached by a scenic cruise from the centre of Perth.
