Many cities have beautiful surroundings and countryside, but many don’t venture out to explore it. Of course, everything in the city is geared up to keeping you there, packed with entertainment for you to explore, but when surroundings are stunning, you should get out there and see it!
Perth is one of those cities which is packed with surrounding beauty, and this is one of the best places in the world to experience the best of both worlds – city and nature.
Located in Western Australia, Perth is the state capital, and it is surrounded by countryside, wine areas, the Indian Ocean coastline, and some amazing sights that you simply have to see – such as Ningaloo Reef and Shark Bay. These two natural wonders are located a short drive away from the city, in the Gascoyne area, but they are certainly worth the journey!
The fourth largest city in the country, Perth is packed with shopping and nightlife, like most cities in the world. If you want to see the city in the best possible way, and even arrive in the best possible way, why not look into limo hire? You can be picked up from the airport and taken to your hotel in serious style if you do this, and the cost is much lower than you might think!
Getting around Perth once you arrive is not difficult, thanks to a great public transport network, so it’s a good idea to get out and explore a little. The city centre is where you will find most of the major attractions, bars, and shopping areas, but Fremantle is another area where you should go. This region is packed with history, but lots of entertainment and restaurants too, so a great alternative to the downtown area. Northbridge is another region which is great for a night out and an afternoon’s exploration, but if you want to head to the famous zoo or aquarium, you will need to venture to the northern and southern suburban areas, which are easily linked by public transport.
We mentioned the beaches earlier, and this is a definite must do! The glittering waters of the Indian Ocean begs you to visit, with amazing sunsets, surfing, diving, snorkelling, and simply chilling the hell out! If you want to keep your feet on dry land, The Hills are where you will find various wineries and walking trails too.
As you can see, Perth is about much more than simple city life, so give yourself the perfect blend and make sure you get out and experience both sides of this wonderful city.
