Perth is the capital city of Western Australia. Located on the famous Swan River, the city has many sandy beaches, gardens, and parks. It is an ideal place for spending a quiet weekend with your friends. And if you are traveling with family, the city offers lots of entertainment venues like amusement centers, zoos, wildlife, shopping malls, water tours, and water sports. Our short stay in Perth was full of excitement and fun. Mentioned below are some of the most-visited places in the city.
Kings Park and Botanic Gardena
Kings Park and Botanic Gardena is a place visited by every tourist that enters the city of Perth. The place offers a great view of the entire city including the beautiful Swan River. The botanic garden is quite large and can keep you enchanted for hours. It is a perfect family outing location recommended for everyone. The entry is totally free and besides gardens, the place has skywalks, restaurants, and playgrounds.
St. Mary’s Cathedral
Even though the city has many attractions, nothing can match the glory of the grand cathedral of St Mary located on Victoria Square. The church has a history that dates back to 1863. The construction was carried out in various stages and was fully completed in 2010. The Gothic-styled church has beautiful stained glass windows and well-designed interiors. The surrounding grounds are also quite impressive and can make you feel quite relaxed and serene.
The last day of our trip was spent by the beautiful Swan River. Located on Riverside Drive, the river-side area offers a great view of the waters. We opted for a boating trip to make the visit all the more adventurous. Besides boating, visitors also engage in paddling, skiing, and fishing. The best time to visit the place is during the evening hours.
