This fast-growing cosmopolitan hub has become a popular end of season footy trip destination, with vibrant nightlife, live music, great weather and endless beaches.
Book a day trip over to Rottnest and drop a line in the island’s pristine beaches, whilst checking out the area’s maritime history (and famous pub). Or head over to Fremantle, just 20kms from the city – with its craft breweries, eclectic bars and boutique hotels, Fremantle has earned a spot in Lonely Planet’s Top 10 Cities of the World in 2016. Make the round trip back to the city via Cottesloe Beach Hotel to experience a world-famous Sunday Session overlooking the WA sunset.
Northbridge, Subiaco or Scarborough offer all you need for a massive night out, and Perth’s Crown Casino boasts one of the city’s most popular nightclubs. If you need another reason to head to WA – it is also widely known as the birthplace of some of the hottest people in Australia. Think Megan Gale, Gemma Ward & Heath Ledger.
