The Swan River is an icon of Western Australia and can be viewed from various places in and around Perth. My favourites are probably: 1. The South Perth foreshore which is near the Zoo and various cafes and restaurants. 2. The Applecross foreshore, where you can see a panoramic view of the Perth Skyline and walk up to Heathcote to play in the adventure playground! 3. Fremantle, where the river meets the ocean at the port, and you can take a beautiful stroll around the bridges.

Swan Valley has beautiful scenery and a huge amount of breweries, wineries and restaurants to visit. My favourite of these is probably Feral Brewery and Sandalford Winery. You can spend all day driving around this area if you like, or you can take an Uber tour (or other organised tour, of which there are plenty) so that you can enjoy the abundance of alcohol on offer!

While the ferry over to Rottnest is a bit expensive, it is definitely worth the price. It is a beautiful, peaceful place - except during university breaks and at the end of the school year, when many Western Australian students flock to the island to party. This is the only place where quokkas can be seen in their natural habitat, and they are extremely cute and curious little creatures. Hire a bike and a snorkel to get the most out of the islands natural beauty.

While there isn't a huge amount to see at the Perth Mint, it is worth a visit if you're in the area. There is beautiful and original jewelry and gold products to buy if you're in the market for that. I would definitely recommend the tour if you want to learn a little bit about Western Australia's history from an entertaining guide. It ends in a gold pouring demonstration which I find to be very impressive and features a little bit of fire!

While I don't often like zoos, Perth Zoo is definitely one of the better ones I have visited. All of the exhibits are well-maintained, and barely any make me feel sorry for the animals, which is a huge plus for me! The Zoo has a number of important conservation projects which I am happy to contribute to via the submission fee. There are a wide variety of animals from all over the world to see, and you can easily spend the whole day here.
