Visit Central Perth
The city of Perth offers visitors a wealth of attractions, activities and experiences, all within a central, easily walkable area.
Explore the arcades and boutiques between Hay and Murray Streets, or head north over Horseshoe Bridge into the lively suburb of Northbridge. Discover the wealth of shopping and dining opportunities at The Hay Street Mall, Murray Street Mall, Raine Square, Forest Chase, Barrack Street and Kings Street.
Visit the Perth Cultural Centre, and admire the constantly changing displays at the Art Gallery and the State Museum. From the perfectly manicured Queens Gardens, head to the Perth Mint and enjoy a fascinating tour of the refurbished foundry.
Continuing on, past Stirling Gardens, you will come across the ornate historic buildings such as Government House, the Old Courthouse, the Francis Burt Law Museum and the Old Perth Boys' School, now operating as a wine bar and café.
Take a short ferry ride from the city to the Perth Zoo, explore the Old Mill, and wander the beautifully landscaped Kings Park, enjoying the spectacular views of the city. Hire a bicycle and spend a few hours cycling your way along the foreshore through native bushland, to adventure playgrounds and picnic areas.
The picturesque Swan River is a base for many activities. Enjoy a few hours cruising on a relaxing river cruise or try jet-skiing, sailing or windsurfing. The river also provides a beautiful backdrop to dining experiences, with many restaurants offering water views.
