What to see and do
The capital of Western Australia, Perth is an exciting metropolis filled with life and energy. Lo-cated on Australia’s southwestern coastline, Perth faces out into the Indian Ocean and is blessed with a slew of gorgeous beaches.
One such example is Cottesloe Beach, located just 30 minutes from the city centre. Considered one of Perth’s most popular beach hang-outs, Cottesloe Beach is a place for relaxation and easy leisure - laze on the clean white sands absorbing golden sun rays, then dip your body into the crystal-clear sea water when you get overheated. You can also swim and snorkel in peace in Cottesloe's waters, without fear of rip tides or dangerous creatures. When you get hungry, a myriad of beachfront restaurants and cafes await your patronage, and you won’t have to worry about getting hurried away whilst you slowly nurse your food and drink with the spectacular ocean view.
Don’t like coastal scenery? Lancelin is but a 1.5 hour drive away and offers a whole new world of activities. The town is home to spectacular sand dunes, and adrenaline junkies can go nuts sandboarding, quad biking, trail bike riding and 4-wheel driving there.
