Here we have a few ideas on places to visit while staying in Perth, keep your day busy and maximise your time to get the best out of your experience.
A must do is a visit to King’s Park Botanical Gardens where you can enjoy the stunning views of the Swan River and the Perth city skyline. You can climb the DNA Tower and walk through the tree top walk or stroll through the beautiful expanse of gardens. Especially beautiful at night when the trees are lit up in different colours. Restaurants and cafes are also very good. During the summer months you can see an outdoor movie there (Nov-April) and enjoy a leisurely picnic.
Experience the rush of pure gold in the heart of the city at the historic Perth Mint.
See how prospectors of the early 1900s lived and mined gold as well as watch as 200 ounces of pure molten gold is poured to form a gleaming, solid gold bar. A lovely place to have a traditional high tea in the sunroom.
