Our neighborhood:

Experience Perth - All the essential ingredients for a great holiday. Some of the country's best beaches, plenty of nightlife, bustling markets, inner city parks, outdoor dining and amazing marine adventures.

Experience Perth centres on Western Australia's capital of Perth, which sits beside the widest stretch of the meandering Swan River.

Locals here enjoy a relaxed outdoors lifestyle, as does the neighbouring port city of Fremantle, at the mouth of the Swan.

 

Just Add Water

The line-up of water-based fun includes boating, fishing and all dialogues of surfing.

Fremantle's majestic historic architecture takes you back in time, while its marine heritage draws you to the ocean and a short ferry ride to Rottnest Island.

Locals head over to "Rotto" to be soothed into a state of total relaxation among sheltered bays and stunningly clear crystal waters.

Endless beaches stretch from Experience Perth's famous Cottesloe Beach up the coast towards Lancelin - Western Australia's windsurfing and sandboarding mecca.

For an awesome view of the Swan River, the city and the Darling escarpment, head to Kings Park and the Federation Walkway, where you can also wander among the treetops.

Or drive south to Rockingham and Mandurah for dolphins, foreshore picnicking and excellent crabbing. The intricate inland waterways lacing this area are perfect for anyone who loves to mess about on the river.

 

Into the Hills and Valleys Inland lies the sweeping Swan Valley - a showcase for local produce, including premium wineries and art galleries. A great time to visit is during the annual Spring in the Valley festival, but you'll find plenty to see and do at any time of the year.

Travel further east and you're into the forested Darling Range, the banks of the Avon Valley and the historic towns of York and Toodyay - packed with galleries, craft shops, cafes and heritage museums. For something unique visit New Norcia, Australia's only monastic town.

Within day trip distance of Perth, this area is a tranquil contrast to city life, and you'll want to stay longer. Many choose a farmstay for the true rural experience.

Adventurers won't be disappointed either, as rafting on the Avon River, hot air ballooning, sky-diving and abseiling are all on offer.

The bushwalks and cycle trails alone will keep you busy for a full weekend or longer. So remember to pack your comfortable walking shoes, and prepare to fall in love with Western Australia's beau

About us:

My husband and i have been married for 3 months and would like to have a holiday in Europe before we start our family. We are looking at staying between 2-6 weeks maybe visiting a few countries (italy/france/greece/spain/scotland) so we would like to stay 1-2 weeks in a few different houses. If you let us know when you would like to come to Australia, we'll see if we can make the dates work.
