About Perth

Perth, the capital of Western Australia, combines urban flair with natural beauty along the Swan River. Its Mediterranean climate invites year-round outdoor activities, from surfing at Cottesloe Beach to strolling through Kings Park. The city's cultural scene thrives with art, music, and festivals, complementing its diverse economy. With stunning landscapes and a welcoming atmosphere, Perth shines as a coastal gem.


Spring is the best time to visit Perth. October average temperatures are low of 13°C and a high 22°C. 


Western Australia is on Western Standard Time (WST) and is one and a half hours behind South Australia and the Northern Territory and two hours behind all other states. Time differences may increase by one hour from October to March because of daylight saving.
