Flights to Perth

There's a bit of a Wild West feel to Perth, Australia, a city of nearly two million that's about as far away from the rest of the world as you can get. It might be on its own but that doesn't mean there's nothing to do or a lack of culture.

Dating back to the 1820s, Perth has smart cafes, beautiful beachside restaurants, a vibrant ocean scene, and many other amenities that you'd expect from a metropolis of its size.

One of the best things about dining in Perth is the view from your seat. Many establishments offer stunning vistas of the Swan River, the city centre, or the Indian Ocean. The best restaurants include the modern Australian dining at Print Hall and traditional Chinese cuisine at Good Fortune Roast Duck House.

A thriving arts scene has resulted in many galleries including Art Gallery of Western Australia, Western Australian Museum, and smaller ones owned by individuals, as well as the Scitech Discovery Centre and the Army Museum of Western Australia. Kings Park is one of the largest inner-city parks in the world, boasting sculptures such as DNA Tower and the Jacob's Ladder staircase.

Although there's endless sunshine in Perth, at some point you're going to need a bed to rest your weary head. Many of the city's best hotels have an eco-friendly angle, something that will make you feel good about staying there as you enjoy the comfort of your stylish room and the elegant ambiance.

Perth's hoteliers know that coming to their city can sometimes feel like travelling to the end of the earth – in a good way – and they seek to provide guests with an experience that makes them feel as welcome as possible. Perth is a long way from home, but you won't notice.

Like Melbourne and Sydney, Perth is consistently ranked as one of the world's most liveable cities, and it's a pleasure to visit as well. There is more than enough to keep you busy for the duration of your stay – you could be happy hitting up the many and varied beaches for an entire month or more.

Visit the Aviation Heritage Museum

Check out over 30 historical airplanes collected and curated by the Royal Australian Air Force Association. The collection's gems range from an Auster J5B to the Wirraway CA-5, and every type of flying machine in between. Watch as history flies before your very eyes.
