Why go to Perth?

With an all-encompassing mix of urban excitement, miles of attractive beaches and glorious countryside, Western Australia's capital, Perth, draws visitors from all over the world. Tourism tends to focus on the city, which enjoys a cosmopolitan feel and offers such cultural attractions as the Western Australian Maritime Museum, Swan Valley's many wineries and the enormous King's Park, which is one of the largest urban parks in the world.

Shopping features heavily on any tourist's schedule, with outlets for such notable brands as Gucci, Louis Vuitton and Chanel, as well as independent designers, whose works are most often to be found along Hay Street and Rokeby Road. The city is well served by high-quality restaurants and smaller establishments, serving a range of seasonal, local foods.

Which major airlines fly to Perth from UK?

Flight time from the UK is between eighteen and nineteen hours, with flights available from a number of airlines including Qantas, British Airways and Emirates; these are available from all major UK airports, such as London Heathrow and Gatwick, Manchester, Birmingham, Edinburgh and Glasgow.

How to get to city centre from the airport?

It's possible to book a taxi or shuttle bus when you make your holiday arrangements, which saves having to wait, queue or walk for too long, although they can also be used without reservations. Trains and buses are available, although the train service doesn't run overnight and isn't recommended for vulnerable travellers after dark. To save money, a combination of a short taxi journey to the train station or local bus terminus, with the relevant public transport can be an ideal solution.

What are the visa requirements for British and non-EU nationals?

For holiday purposes, UK travellers are entitled to visit for as long as twelve months on a visitor's visa, which can be applied for using a hard-copy of the form if the trip is to last up to twelve months or via an easy-to-use online form if the trip is to last three months or less. Tourists from non-EU countries must apply for the visitor visa as well, but don't have the option of using the online application process.

How to get around Perth?

The public transport system, Transperth, consists of trains, ferries and buses and money-saving passes are available to cover specific zones within the area, for which plenty of information is available from Transperth offices. A separate bus and tram service, the free Central Area Transit (CAT) system, operates throughout the city, with computerised schedules on display at stops, so travellers can find out when the next CAT will arrive. Naturally, taxis can be picked up from a range of sites as well.

When is the best time to visit Perth?

For UK travellers, spring - September to November - and autumn - March to May - are the best times, particularly for those intending to head for the beaches. With average summer highs 32 °C and average winter lows of eight degrees with heavy rainfall, it seems that the moderate months are a far more attractive prospect.

Airport Overview

Perth Airport has two domestic terminals side by side about 12km (7.5 miles) from the Perth CBD, while the International Terminal is about 17km (11 miles) away from town. The airport has seen a huge increase in passengers in recent years, so if you're travelling at peak times, be prepared for crowds and queues.

Although the airport's facilities have been criticised for being outdated and run-down, there is more than enough by way of restaurants, shops, baby-changing facilities, prayer rooms and other standard facilities so that your stay at the airport should be fairly enjoyable and uneventful.

Perth itself is isolated in a vast and empty stretch of Western Australia. The city is quiet and safe, with miles of spectacular, uncrowded beaches close by. If you have time, head for the zoo in the CBD, where kangaroos are allowed to hop right up to visitors.
