The park offers a number of activities, including a treetop walkway and guided tours focusing on local Aboriginal heritage.

When you’re visiting the sunniest city in one of the world’s sunniest countries, almost everything happens outside.

Perth benefits from over 3000 hours of sunshine each year, allowing visitors to soak up the rays as they learn about Perth’s history and heritage, run with the locals in green spaces larger than Central Park and hit their choice of 19 beaches a short distance from the CBD.

As the capital of Western Australia, Perth houses holiday rentals of all sorts, from sleek condos with views of the city skyline to comfortable family houses in residential neighbourhoods.

Cottesloe Beach is the most visited beach in the Perth, boasting white sand and turquoise water and lined by tall pines and grassy parklands.

You’re likely to see this beach featured on many a Perth postcard, with Indiana Tea House standing proud at the water’s edge.

Cottesloe isn’t just for tourists, however: a walking and jogging track runs close to the sand, favoured by locals.

If you’re looking for a bit more privacy, head to the next beach over, North Cottesloe Beach, less visited by tourists, with open ocean views and fewer buildings lining the shore.

For surfing, spend the day at Scarborough, known for its good breaks and party culture, or head to the more challenging Trigg Beach, with rougher waves for serious surfers. Perhaps the most famous is Kings Park and Botanic Garden, an inner city space almost 60 hectares larger than Central Park in New York.

If you would like to soak up some history while getting your Vitamin D fix, stroll through Stirling Gardens, the oldest public gardens in the state. A more recent addition to the park includes a series of bouncing kangaroos sculptures.
