The most remote capital in the world also happens to be the most upbeat. Perth has fantastic beaches beautiful parks alfresco dining vibrant markets and a dazzling array of marine adventures. Both Perth and its neighbouring historic port city of Fremantle are perched at the mouth of the meandering Swan River Fremantle and Rottnest Island are frequented by the locals who head here to be soothed into a state of total relaxation. For the adrenalin seekers Lancelin is Western Australia’s sand boarding mecca. For the art buff the Swan and Avon Valleys are not only a showcase for premium wineries but also for art galleries a great time to visit is during the annual spring in the Valley festival in October but you will find plenty to see and do at any time of the year. Adventurers have a serious number of rather hellish activities to indulge in from rafting hot air ballooning skydiving to abseiling. Everything’s on offer.
