The Area: Perth, Western Australia
As the capital city of Western Australia, Perth’s laid-back culture with big-city attractions has pulled tourists to visit its many beaches, parks and restaurants. Scarborough Beach is a popular hotspot among surfers while Swanbourne Beach allows people to bathe in the nude. Visit Fremantle Prison, a former prison that was built in the 1850s and is now a public museum with tours of the flooded tunnels and aqueducts under the building.
Take in scenic views of various greenery in Kings Park and Botanic Garden – it has approximately 319 species of native plants and 80 bird species. Alternatively, pay a visit to the Swan Bells, a set of 18 bells hanging in a specially built tower that when rung, exert considerable forces on the support structure.
