Have you ever found yourself aching to take a nice and quiet break from all the hustle-bustle of your hectic work life? If you have ever felt the need to just leave everything behind for a bit, pack your bags, and go to a calm beach to enjoy yourself, then Perth is the place you are looking for. Adorned with many beautiful beaches, Perth is the fourth largest city in Australia and the capital city of Western Australia, which would be best-suited for vacations during the months of spring and autumn.
And while you’re there, it is always a great idea to check out these places in Perth, irrespective of what time of the year you are in this city of peaceful beaches and widespread flora & fauna:
For the One with a Thing for Adventure
Packed with some of the most famous rides in the world, like Abyss and Kraken, Adventure World is a theme park, which serves as a huge attraction for families with children. Situated only 25 minutes away from the city of Perth, one could easily reach here by using rental cars. Tickets for kids below the age of three are free at this park and it stays open throughout summer. Although, if you’re an ardent animal lover, Perth Zoo is a must-visit for you. Boasting of being the home of over 1200 species of animals, this zoo stays open throughout the year. For the flora part, Kings Park and Botanic Garden is one of the most popular parks in Perth for its brilliant range of gardens and bushland that spread through 400.6 hectares of land!
All That Glitters is Gold Here!
If you’re the one all about history, then the Perth Mint is sure to set your pulse racing with its unique usage of advanced design & exhibition techniques and audio-visual medium to depict the history of Australian gold. The proud owner of the hugest gold coin in the world, Australian Kangaroo One Tonne Gold Coin, the Mint is open on all seven days from 9am to 5pm with stores that offer collector coins, natural gold nuggets, gold jewellery, and so on to the visitors.
For the Shopping Enthusiast!
What is the worth of a holiday at a new place if there’s no shopping included in its travel itinerary, right? Freemantle markets, which are prettily covered with flowers during spring has more than 150 stalls that one can explore to shop for exquisite gifts, souvenirs, etc. for their friends and families.
Finally, the beaches!
What’s a holiday in Australia without soaking up enough sunlight at its beaches? The sheer beauty of beaches in Scarborough, which is located on the west coast, is that they’re devoid of crowds and filled to the brim with serenity and peace. Another such example is of Rottnest Island, too. Not only does this island have some of the prettiest beaches to add to its cap, another feather in Rottnest’s cap would be the many train, coach, and walk tours, such as the Discovery Tour or the Great Island Tour, that are available for the visitors to explore the Aussie land and gain insight on its rich history and culture.
