Shoalwater Islands Marine Park
Pristine Islands, reefs and ship wrecks make for excellent diving, snorkelling and wildlife watching in the Shoalwater Islands Marine Park. The reefs surrounding the islands provide good snorkelling and diving and abound in marine life including sea stars, urchins and molluscs as well as a number of fish species. Take to the water and you'll probably run into a pod of bottlenose dolphins which are extremely common in the marine park. You can swim with dolphins on tours which operate regularly. Shoalwater Islands Marine Park is accessible from Rockingham which is less than an hour's drive south of Perth. Please note that costs may apply for some activities.
Kings Park and Botanical Gardens
Kings Park and Botanic Garden is the green heart of the city, covering 400.6 hectares and located adjacent to the Swan River, approximately 1.5 kilometres from the Central Business District of Perth. With its remarkable expanses of unique bushland, tranquil parkland and botanic garden, the Park is the most popular visitor destination in Western Australia. The magnificently sited State War Memorial is also one of several scenic vantage points. There are picnic and barbecue facilities, public toilets and playgrounds at several locations in Kings Park. The Lotterywest Family Area (accessible from Kings Park Road) is home to the Ivey Watson Playground, an ideal location for families with very young children.
Rockingham's catch-cry is 'where the coast comes alive', and it certainly lives up to this claim. The pristine islands and reefs of the Shoalwater Islands Marine Park offer an incredible array of marine encounters, from penguins and dolphins to dive wrecks and snorkel trails. And beyond, the beautiful beaches and clear blue sea are playgrounds for fishing, surfing and sailing.
The Fremantle Markets is an authentic piece of Western Australian history. Originally built as a market hall in 1897, this grand old Victorian building was authentically and lovingly restored to be reborn on 31 October 1975, as what you see today, the Fremantle Markets. Enjoy the distinctive atmosphere of over a hundred years of vibrant culture and heritage, mixed with the unmistakable flavours of modern-day Fremantle. Dive in head first, or just sit back and watch the eclectic mix of tourists, craftsmen, musicians, artists and many other local characters.
Indulge the senses with a trip to the Swan Valley and Darling Range. The vineyards of Western Australia's oldest wine region invite you to sample their fruits, feast on award-winning local produce, discover local heritage and relax in the natural bushland of the Darling Range. Just 20 minutes east of Perth, the Swan Valley and Darling Range is a world away from city life. You can reach it by road, or take the scenic route aboard a Swan River cruise from Perth's Barrack Street Jetty. You can even winery-hop in the back of a horse-drawn wagon or chauffeured classic car.
