Perth is part of the South West Land Division of Western Australia, with most of the metropolitan area on the Swan Coastal Plain between the Indian Ocean and the Darling Scarp. The city has expanded outward from the original British settlements on the Swan River, upon which the city’s central business district and port of Fremantle are situated. There are daily direct flights from all of Australia’s main centres, and flights from Asia, the Middle East, Africa, and New Zealand.
Blending urban cool with raw natural beauty, Perth is effortlessly Australian. With its immersive experiences and proximity to a range of daytrip destinations, Australia’s sunniest capital city is a place where relaxation and adventure go hand in hand.

Don’t forget a trip to Rottnest Island, an afternoon visit to Fremantle, or a visit to the local wineries and artisan food producers of the Swan Valley, just a short drive away. Perth is located on the traditional lands of the Whadjuk Noongar people, where Aboriginal Australians have lived for at least 45,000 years.
