Best Sightseeing Tours in Perth

Western Australia’s capital city of Perth doesn’t quite have the frenetic pace of most cities. It’s a little laidback and more informal, making you feel comfortable and welcome. One of the reasons for this could be the beach life that’s prevalent. While the city has more than its share of glitz, it’s balanced by a love of the sand and surf. Just visit Cottesloe Beach and Scarborough Beach to see the number of people who visit. Aside from the beaches, a tour of Fremantle and Perth should definitely be on the cards. On the best sightseeing tours in Perth, you can visit Swan River and Elizabeth Quay as well as the iconic Bell Tower that has 18 bells hanging on a campanile 271 feet high. You can also opt to explore Fremantle in more depth. Important landmarks such as the Maritime Museum and the Fremantle War Memorial will give you a sense of history.

 

The Pinnacles is another must-visit. Although a little farther from Perth, it’s certainly worth a visit. With its otherworldly limestone formations, you’ll feel transported to another time and place. Don’t miss a chance to see kangaroos and koalas too at Caversham Wildlife Park. The World Heritage Site of Fremantle Prison will take you on a trip to the past where hangings were carried out and prisoners like Moondyne Joe made their escape. The Western Australian Museum with its cultural exhibits will help you learn about the history of this part of the country. At the end of your visit, you can relax with a cup of your favorite beverage at the museum’s café, which is located in an old jail. Set out on the best sightseeing tours in Perth and create a cherishable vacation here.
