Things to Do In Perth

The gateway to the Western Australia, the capital city of Perth is also the largest in the state. A melting pot of nightlife, culture and nature, Perth hosts a great range of arts festivals throughout the year and boasts world-class beaches, sprawling parklands and a relaxed lifestyle that embraces the outdoors.

There are so many things to see and do in Perth including historic and cultural attractions such as the Swan Bells, an historic collection of clocks, bells, sundials, telescopes and a complete working set of tubular bells.

The Constitutional Centre is an interactive political education experience for those wishing to understand more about the history and effects of democracy in Western Australia. The Perth Town Hall is another popular attraction that allows you to tour the only one of Australia’s town halls to have been built by convicts and to have served as a fire station.

Brush up on some history at the Western Australian Museum which is an interactive space offering a number of great exhibitions. You can also step back in time at the Perth Mint, the oldest still-operating mint in Australia. Built from Rottnest limestone, the mint is one of the state’s more elegant buildings and offers tours as well as the opportunity to buy ingots, jewellery and coins.

For out of this world fun, the Scitech Discovery Centre offers interactive displays, feature exhibitions and live theatre demonstrations while the Horizon Planetarium provides an adventure into deep space.

If you’re looking for something with a little more culture, the Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts is more than your run-of-the-mill gallery. Similarly, the Art Gallery of Western Australia is home to a fine permanent collection of Australian and international art.

Keep an eye out too for the multitude of public art sculptures and exhibits scattered throughout the city’s parks and open spaces.
