Perth is one of the farthest and relatively less visited cities of Australia. Perth lies in West Australia and even has a separate time zone being so far away from other cities. Five most visited experiences in Perth include

Cruise the Swan River - Cruise the Swan River past parks and skyscrapers to the beaches and bays of Rottnest Island. Or glide past opulent homes to the lively, historic port of Fremantle. Take a high-speed ferry to the Perth Zoo or head upstream to the vineyards of the picturesque Swan Valley. Experience Perth’s glittering skyline on a dinner cruise. Or float down the river to Matilda Bay and the Mediterranean style buildings of the University of Western Australia. Hire a sleek sailboat and billow across the water. Canoe, kayak, kiteboard and jet ski or just watch the colourful flotilla of boats from the shore. Throw down a picnic rug or bike ride alongside the water on the Perth Waters or Canning River tracks.

Kings Park - Walk under towering eucalypt canopies and past mirrored lakes, sculpted gardens and picnic areas on the Bushland Nature Trail. Take in spectacular views of the city, Swan River and Darling Ranges from a lookout on the Lotterywest Federation Walkway or from the top of the 15 metre high DNA Tower. Explore the rich diversity of Western Australian wildflowers in the Botanic Garden.

Fremantle - Wander heritage-listed streets buzzing with busking musicians and magicians. Or stroll winding alleys lined with art. Browse the bustling weekend markets or head to High Street for designer fashion and Aboriginal crafts.

Rottnest Island - You can bike ride or kayak to secluded bays and swim from 63 beaches on tranquil, car-free Rottnest Island

Cottesloe Beach - Swim and snorkel on Cottesloe Beach, before exploring the trendy open-air cafes and pubs along the promenade. Relax on the white sands of City Beach. Or join the surfers and bronzed backpackers of Scarborough, then wander salty-skinned and happy through the weekend markets. Scuba dive shipwrecks from the seaside towns of Yanchep or Two Rocks and picnic and swim at picturesque Yanchep Lagoon.
