THINGS TO DO
Check out the local coastline
Perth has some of the most eye-catching coastlines in Australia, and Cottesloe Beach is by far the most iconic. Situated south of the city, Cottesloe Beach is the perfect place to take full advantage of that magnificent Perth weather.
Plan a day trip
Escape the hustle and bustle of the city with a day trip to Rottnest Island. The stunning white sandy beaches are the perfect place to soak up the WA sunshine and be sure to take a selfie with one of the happiest animals on earth, the Quokka!
Rottnest Island is just 25 minutes via ferry from Fremantle or 90 minutes from Perth's Barrack Street Jetty. With so many adventures to be had, make sure you hire a bike and check out everything the island has to offer.
A day of pampering
Has jetlag taken its toll? Why not spend the day relaxing at Crown Spa’s Aqua Retreat or book a relaxation massage? Inspired by the beautiful refraction of light underwater, Crown Spa Perth will transport you to another world.
