WALKING ALONG THE SWAN River lies along the Swan River, which connects suburbs to the hills and ocean. Western Australia’s first Heritage icon is a place of cultural, recreational, and environmental significance. It’s peaceful and tranquil to walk, run, or ride a bike along the trails that line the river at any time.


Heirisson Island is located in the heart of the city, right on the Swan River. It’s a hidden gem and a great escape from the busy city. It is a peaceful spot, and you can see a variety of birds. The island also has a kangaroo population.

You can only get to them by going through a gate at the western end of the island. There is a fence there to prevent the roos from wandering onto the busy road nearby. They are usually in the shade during the day esp, especially when it is hot.

You can watch them grazing or hopping when it is cooler. It was the first place I visited, and I was able to see my first kangaroo here. You’d never guess you were only a few minutes away from the city. It is also a hidden treasure, like Perth.


Northbridge, a short distance from the center of Perth, offers a vibrant atmosphere, an eclectic mix of shops and restaurants, and some of Western Australia’s best bars and nightlife. This is a wonderful place to go out for a night of drinking, dining, or just wandering.

You can find a variety of foods to suit everyone’s taste, but if seafood is your thing, you’ll be able to get it fresh wherever you go.


Perth has a wide range of shopping opportunities, from stylish malls to eclectic markets. Murray Street and Hay Street Mall are Perth’s two major shopping centers. These are both pedestrian malls that are closed to traffic and have a variety of specialty shops.

You’ll find Myer and David Jones in both the city and suburbs. There are many options and paths for anyone who wants to explore the city.


Perth’s Bell Tower is a unique tourist attraction that overlooks the Swan River. The tower was under construction when I visited so I couldn’t go inside. However, they host a variety of events and tours.

The bells are not rung automatically but by volunteers from the St. Martin’s Society of Change Ringers Inc.

It is a symbol of Perth and Western Australia. With its rich history and distinctive design that was the result of a major architectural contest, it has been a landmark for decades.


East Perth is a suburb in Perth. It’s a beautiful place to visit, with colorful buildings along the waterfront. Claisebrook Cove Bridge is illuminated at night. The fences at each end of the bridge are decorated with love locks.


Tasty. Honest. Innovative. Greenhouse, an eco-friendly restaurant with international cuisines located a few minutes away from my hotel on St. Georges Terrace, is a space that’s close by. The materials are all raw and recycled, including the lighting fixtures, the floor surface, and the furniture.

The vertical gardens that covered the walls with greenery were my favorite. What a neat idea! A roof-top vegetable garden provides fresh ingredients to the bar and kitchen. It is a unique place to dine, and I recommend you do so.

This is one of the most unique activities in Perth, Western Australia.

Perth: Nature meets city, and city meets nature

Kings Park offers a unique opportunity to experience nature at the heart of Perth City, Mt Eliza, and Swan River. There is something for everyone, from playgrounds to picnic areas and walking trails.

Climb the spiraling DNA Tower’s 101 steps for spectacular views. You’ll have a great view of the Swan River, Kings Park Bot,anic Garden, and Rottnest Island from the top. The Lotterywest Federated Walkway offers great views of the skyline from the treetops.

The Western Australian Botanic Gardens has an arched bridge suspended between eucalyptus. The Botanic Gardens, which are part of a worldwide network dedicated to plant conservation and have diverse Western Australian plant life, can be walked through at the end.

The gardens were not very impressive when I visited in June, which is winter in Australia. I’ll have to return in spring or summer!


Leederville is located north of Perth and has a vibrant cafe and nightlife around Vincent and Oxford Streets. It’s known for its retro and modern style. It is a great place to explore, just like Fremantle.

The main reason for my visit to Leederville was that I wanted to meet with the owner of a small design company. Although I didn’t have time to explore all of Leederville, we met at a coffee shop called Greens & Co, located off Oxford Street. I highly recommend stopping by.

There are many posters and artwork on the walls. The seating is made up of couches, tables, and chairs. You can also play retro board games, arcade video games from the 80s, and pool tables. The lighting was my favorite part of the decor, ambiance, and decor.

The lights can be seen from the street because of the large glass doors. We talked about Perth’s design market for more than an hour while sipping on a specialty beverage. The place is a great spot to relax, grab a snack, and take in the moment.


Caversham Wildlife Park is a family-owned park that showcases the most extensive private collection of native animals in Western Australia. The park is home to a wide variety of plants, birds, and mammals, including dingos, llamas, and echidnas. But the most interesting part for me was the marsupials, which included koalas, kangaroos, wombats, and wallabies.

You can interact with the animals by feeding them kangaroos, wallabies, and joeys. You can get close to the koalas (but not touch them) during certain hours for pictures. CWP takes pride in its unique, interactive experiences with Australia’s most fascinating animals. They are not commercialized and keep the relaxed Aussie feel.

This photo was taken while I was watching a koala. Next to me, I heard rustling. When I turned around and saw him, I was able to get very close. This is a must-do among all of the things to see and do in Perth.
