So whether you surf at Cottesloe Beach, picnic in King's Park or ride a segway at Elizabeth Quay, anything goes in Perth and its surrounds are worth a visit. Check out Little Creatures brewery in picturesque Fremantle, only a 30 minute drive from Perth or take a ferry across to Rottnest Island for a bike and snorkel adventure.

When is the best time to visit Western Australia?

Western Australia is a year round destination and its capital Perth is the sunniest city in Australia with an average of 29°C in summer. Winter in Perth and the South West can get a little chilly (for Aussie standards) with an average temperature of 12°C from June to August. The climate in the North West is more tropical with a 'green season' from October to March and a dry season from April to September. Be wary that certain places in the Kimberley Region are only accessible during the 'dry season' and generally this is the better time to head to the North West because, let's face it, we get enough rain at home.
