This cosmopolitan port is around half an hour’s drive from Perth.
A center for the state’s talented creative community, it has a lively atmosphere which spills out onto the streets with buskers and local artists vying for attention.
The city’s historic and impressively restored West End offers fine 19th century architecture best seen from the Round House, built in 1831 by the first settlers as a jail, which offers panoramic views of Rottnest Island, the harbor and the town.
The magnificent Maritime Museum sits at the entrance to the harbor and contains an exhibition of maritime history, which includes Australia’s 1983 America’s Cup success. Fishing Boat Harbour is a popular dining spot with restaurants clustered on the boardwalk.
