While the Perth CBD will spoil you for choice when it comes to food and nightlife, the surrounding Perth region has some spectacular sites where you can truly experience the laid-back Australian lifestyle and enjoy all that our natural environment has to offer.

Imagine pristine white beaches and crystalline waters, forests teeming with kangaroos, and a historical port city where arts and culture meet organic living. Perth has a lot more to offer than meets the eye. 

Here are some of the best activities to do on your extended stay in our wonderful city, as well as a few additional options further afield for those who have time to take in more of Western Australia’s most treasured spots.
