The Western Australia region

The Western Australian region

Welcome to Perth. A vibrant, energetic city that offers a truly unique Western Australian experience

Immerse yourself in an eclectic mix of city culture and stunning nature, from Perth's burgeoning bar scene and open arts festivals, to its world-class beaches and expansive parklands.

Australia's sunniest capital city, Perth embraces a relaxed outdoor lifestyle. Explore the 400 hectares of Kings Park in the city or the inviting clear waters and spectacular sunsets at Cottesloe Beach.

Head south to the port city of Fremantle where the fascinating maritime history blends with an open, multicultural energy. Take a short ferry ride to Rottnest Island, a city escape for swimming, snorkeling, fishing and relaxing.

Further down the coast, you will find Rockingham, home to an abundant array of marine life including pods of wild dolphins that regularly visit. Or explore the north coast and experience the thrill of sandboarding on the endless snow-white sand dunes in Lancelin.

Venture inland to the Swan Valley, Western Australia's oldest wine growing region. Scenic vineyards, produce farms, and art galleries speckle the valley, creating a feast for the senses.

Continue east to the country town of York, centred on the rolling vistas of the Avon Valley. Wander through living history and discover the town's beautifully preserved streets and buildings.

Discover the vibrant, open energy flowing through Perth – the gateway to Western Australia.

Perth's idyllic island playground, Rottnest is just a short ferry ride from the mainland and a world away from city life. For such a tiny island, this car-free and carefree Class A reserve packs a lot of pleasure into a day.

Getting to 'Rotto', as the locals affectionately call it, is a breeze. Just 19 kilometres off the coast, ferries depart regularly from Fremantle, Perth's Barrack Street Jetty and Hillarys Marina. You can opt to arrive in style by helicopter or air taxi, or even cruise across in your own boat.

On its shores, 63 stunning beaches, 20 beautiful bays and many coral reefs and wrecks invite you to enjoy some of Australia's finest swimming spots, snorkel trails and surf breaks. And on dry land, you'll meet the cutest mini marsupial, found only in Western Australia, the world famous quokka, as well as many unique plant and animal species.

With no cars on the roads, riding is the best way to get around, with bicycle hire available at the ferry terminals and on the island. If that's too much effort, you can hop on and off the Bayseeker Bus which regularly runs around the island, dropping you off at some of the more secluded beaches and surf breaks.

More family fun in the form of golf, tennis, shopping and guided tours can be found in Thomson Bay, as well as cafes, restaurants and takeaway options.

Tours on land and sea offer insightful experiences, from wildlife encounters with quokkas, seals, ospreys and whales, to history and cultural tours bringing Rottnest's colourful maritime, convict, colonial and World War II heritage vividly to life.

A stroll through the main settlement is a journey back in time as you pass by some of the early colonial cottages, including the Salt Store and Lomas Cottage, dating back to the mid-1800s.

Many of the grand buildings and quaint holiday cottages commissioned by Perth's Governor in the 19th century are still a favourite among holidaymakers today, including the restored Hotel Rottnest and beachside villas. Alternatively, the old barracks are a good budget option for camping and backpacking.

Margaret River and its premium wine region is the place for indulging many passions. It's the only wine region in Australia where you can hop from award-winning wineries and restaurants to stunning beaches, tall-timber forests, world-class surf breaks and ancient caves.

From Perth, it's an easy 3-hour-and-20-minute drive via coast or country. Budget travellers can catch the coach that departs daily. Or, you can opt to arrive in style, taking a direct charter flight or a scheduled flight to nearby Busselton.

Blessed with mild weather and abundant sunshine, Margaret River has evolved from a chilled-out surfie town into a popular base for enjoying the region's fine flavours and spectacular scenery, where rolling vineyards sit against a backdrop of ocean and forest.

Producing over 15 per cent of Australia's premium wine, the tastings are top notch. And besides over 100 wineries, you'll be spoilt for choice with many fine restaurants, boutique breweries, art galleries and fresh produce, from divine cheeses to chocolate. Time your visit to coincide with the annual wine and food festivals and you'll get to savour many of these flavours in one hit.

Those with a taste for adventure will find plenty to indulge in too.

Known internationally as one of the best big-wave surfing locations on Earth for consistently spectacular breaks, there are over 40 top spots along Margaret River's coast, with conditions ranging from powerful reef breaks to fun beach surf.

Venture inland and you'll be dwarfed by some of the world's tallest hardwood trees, and awe-struck by the longest straw stalactite on show when you plunge into Jewel Cave - one of many ancient limestone caves open to the public.

More thrills can be found with rock climbing, abseiling, mountain biking, canoeing and whale watching tours. You might even be tempted to throw in a line and chase some snapper at one of the designated fishing spots.



Fremantle

Fremantle

Fremantle is often described as a city of artists and indeed many of the state's leading practitioners in the visual arts, crafts, writing, film and photography live there. It is an interesting and visual place, being a bustling port city with a substantial fishing industry, surrounded by beaches and with a city centre (the West End) consisting of an outstanding collection of Federation and other historic buildings.

Fremantle is also renowned for its numerous coffee houses, small restaurants, museums as well as a number of significant historical landmarks such as the Round House and the Fremantle Prison. It was once, briefly, 'home of the Americas cup'. Fremantle is located at the mouth of the Swan River on the West Coast of Western Australia and is part of the Perth metropolitan area.

The Perth city centre is only 14kms away - a 25 minute cab ride or 30 minutes by train.

On May 2, 1829 Captain Charles Fremantle formally annexed all of Western Australia for England to prevent a similar move by France. One month later a party of settlers arrived from England aboard the ship Parmelia, led by Captain James Stirling who established two townsites in the new Swan River Colony: a port and a farming community. He named the port Fremantle and the farming settlement Perth.

The history and development of Fremantle has always revolved around the city's port facilities, but its most rapid development took place during the Western Australian gold discoveries of the 1890s. However, the early years saw slow progress because of capital and labour shortages. The introduction of convict labour from England in 1850 provided the workforce for expansion and the construction of many of Fremantle's original buildings which are still standing.

Today the Port of Fremantle, completed in 1897 by CY O'Connor, is an efficient and modern container handling facility, the main entry port for Western Australia, an important landing destination for goods destined for the eastern states and a popular stop over for cruise ships and visiting naval vessels, especially the US Navy. Fremantle was a major naval base during the latter stages of the 2nd world war and had more than 130 submarines, mostly American, operating from the inner harbour.

In addition to the port, there is a boat harbour for a substantial fishing fleet and surrounded by all of the maritime services needed to support the fleet, several large recreational boating harbours (that hosted yachts for the Americas Cup challenge in 1987) and a small boat building industry. In recent years two significant historical replica ships were built here - the HMS Endevour and the Dyfkin (the first Dutch vessel to chart the Australian coastline in 1666).

During the year there are two important community events, the Blessing of the Fleet in October and the Fremantle Festival in November.

The bottom line is: When visiting Perth in Western Australia, why would anyone stay anywhere else but in Fremantle? If you don't stay in Fremantle, what do you do after 6pm and where do you go at the weekend? These are the questions you will get from the locals.
