The beaches of Australia are a treat worth relishing. The West Coasters are much more fortunate. They have access to beaches of white sand and the Indian Ocean. Situated in Perth’s suburbs, Cottesloe is the beloved beach in West Australia.

For families, this is a safe place. While you are waiting for sunset, either you may have a towel on the beach and picnic amongst the trees, or you can relax in a bar.

Trigg Beach is a great place for surfers, located farther north near Sorrento. It has sumptuous water but is also an excellent destination for day-trippers. This beach is quieter and not so busy as Cottesloe, so knowledgeable guests may stop by.

4. Culture Rich

The Western Australia Museum is located in central Perth’s Cultural Centre. It is an important cultural organization. 

To get to know the culture or legends of the native people, and if you are interested in other ethnicities. Try visiting the Diamond and Dinosaurs display, the Dampier Marine and Mammal Gallery exhibitions. One should definitely spend an hour at the Western Australian Art Gallery while you are at the cultural hub. Perth’s free CAT bus provides easy access to the gallery. 

This is a fantastic site to visit collections of modern art and discover what Australian artists are doing. The realm of aboriginal art can also be explored.

5. Treat for Wildlife

The Perth Zoo houses more than 160 species from across the world and is a treat for animal lovers.

The zoo allows you to learn more about wildlife and flora through seminars, demonstrations and experiences with animals. A highlight of Perth’s event schedule is the summer event season of the zoo. A short boat journey to the island of Rottnest, 19 kilometres from Perth, will provide you furry pleasure. The quokka is home to a nice little mammal that looks much like a kangaroo, roughly the same dimensions as a household cat.

Exploring the island’s gorgeous beaches with cycling, walking and sailing trips is termed amazing by the tourists. You may also enjoy snorkelling and golf on the island.

6. The City Offers The Thrill

If you’re an adrenaline rush person, Perth is for you. You can participate in various motocross and enduro events. Heck, you can even go solo off riding! All you need is a good bike and protective gear. You can get them easily from MXstore if you don’t have them already.
