Perth Travel Info
Head out West in Australia and you’ll come across miles of dry desert until you reach the urban oasis of Perth. Book with Direct Flights for cheap flights and bargain accommodation and discover this fantastic city.
Separated by miles and miles of desert from other large Australian cities such as Sydney and Melbourne, Perth is a modern city surrounded by famous beaches and not much else. But in this West Australian isolation lies Perth’s brilliance.
Travelling to Perth can be done either by plane, by train or by road. If coming from Sydney or Melbourne, do like many locals and drive along the south coast of Australia through Adelaide until you reach Perth. Booking car hire is also optimal for travelling around Perth and its surrounding suburbs. Direct Flights offers affordable car hires for any budget.
Though not as famed as those of Cairns, beaches are one of the main attractions in Perth. Grab a book from one of the bookshops located in Hay Street or Murray Street, and head straight to the beach. Start up a lively game of beach volleyball or take a peaceful walk along the shoreline. There are also plenty of shopping precincts in Perth with many items unique to this city. World-famous Broome pearls, Argyle diamonds and Perth mint gold are the most popular items. For the best in Perth cuisine, leave the city centre and head to Fremantle. With its famous cappuccino strip, Fremantle, or Freo as the locals call it, offers a wide variety of tasty cuisine. Try the fish and chips at Cicerello’s, which come highly recommended, or Sala Thai, one of the best Thai restaurants in Perth.
