Our top sights, highlights and exclusive tips

Discover Perth Tours

A Perth holiday is a perfect blend of stunning beaches mixed with city-break heaven. If you enjoy winelands, bushlands, and beachy coastlines, then allow Perth, the capital of Western Australia, to entertain you. This laidback city is soaked in sun year-round and just perfect for couples, families, and solo travellers. Enjoy adventure and relaxation with a kayak along the coast at Cottesloe Beach, before heading inland to a rooftop bar for a local beer. An influx of foreign arrivals has given city nightlife an international feel, with Northbridge becoming a cultural hub for live entertainment, regional wines, and excellent eateries in recent years. Book your dream Perth tour with Tourlane and let our Travel Experts plan and book your next favourite holiday.

The Top Perth Holiday Attractions

1. Fremantle Prison

Once a prison for British criminals sent packing from their land, Freemantle is now a historical monument recognised as a World Heritage Site. Opened in 1855, a prison tour of six hectares leads to underground tunnels, a hospital, and prison cells used to lock up hardened criminals. Explore the darker side of Australian history as you tour a space once used to contain some notorious criminals.

2. Kings Park and Botanic Garden

A tour of this inner-city botanic garden includes an enormous amount of flora, many of which are native to Australia. Over 3,000 species of plants are here, the garden is also an opportunity to learn about European and Aboriginal history. Contemporary culture is showcased through design, displays, and interactive services. Among the 990 acres of park is bushland, lakes, and a sculpted garden with an international reputation.

3. The Bell Tower (Home of the Swan Bells)

The shape of a rocket standing 82 metres tall, The Bell Tower has 18 bells and sprawling views of the city. Located at the port of Perth, this copper and glass campanile has an observation deck for your viewing pleasure. Head up and enjoy The Bell Tower Experience, as you learn from a tour guide about the history of this epic structure. A Perth visit isn’t complete with this unforgettable panorama view of the city.

4. Swan River

Swan River slithers through the centre of Perth to the Indian Ocean. Along its embankment, take a stroll or cycle as you pass friendly locals enjoying the outdoors of this sunny city. Alternatively, why not boat up or paddle by canoe, arrowing these oxygenated waters as you move downtown. At the end of the day why not enjoy a picnic under the shade of a peppermint tree by the water.

5. Cottesloe Beach

Located between Perth and Freemantle is Cottesloe Beach, a Perth holiday favourite and must-do. Take in the view of the Indian Ocean as you dine at sunset by Marine Parade after a day snorkelling. You’ll be astounded by the bluest ocean you’ve ever seen at this beach, locals enjoy the picture-perfect sunset with a beer after a long day.

6. Rottnest Island

Just offshore from Perth is the protected nature reserve of Rottnest Island. The best way to explore is by bike, but be on the lookout for the cute Quokka, often considered to be “the world’s happiest animal.”  A variety of tours bring you closer to nature and includes the Wadjemup Bidi, 27 miles of trail that cover environmentally significant landmarks.

7. Pinnacles Desert

Protruding from the earth’s surface, the Pinnacles Desert is located 120 miles north of Perth. Arrive and experience an otherworldly sight of limestone as it towers from desert found in Nambung National Park. Hike to Thirst Point Lookout to take in the surrounding sight of the coastal fishing town Cervantes, before heading there to enjoy some sublime seafood. A Perth holiday experience that has to be seen to believed.
