A green city located right on the Swan River, Perth is beautiful. It is the capital city of Western Australia and was given the name ‘city of light’ in 1962 when residents turned on their street and house lights as an American astronaut called John Glenn flew overhead during his quest of going.

When in Perth, a great way to spend your day would be to pay a visit to the Swan River. The serene atmosphere and lovely quiet spots make it perfect for a picnic. You can even take out your barbeque and spend time with your family making burgers. Choose to take advantage of any of the many cruises that are operated in the daytime and evening along the river and enjoy seeing the city from a different angle. The Perth zoo is just across the river from the city and boasts of unique Western Australia animal species such as the Numbat. It makes for another great day out activity.

Make sure to visit city’s coastal suburbs and explore the fantastic beaches there. Long stretches of beautiful golden sandy beaches are sure to make your visit worth your while. While there, you could decide to go snorkeling. Explore the fascinating undersea world just off the coast.
