3km away. The best place to get a wonderful view of the Perth skyline and its reflection in the river is from the South Perth foreshore. With the river winding past at a lazy pace and the city reflected in the calm waters and with Kings Park in the background it is hard to go past a better view. You can stretch your legs along the endless sidewalks, or rest on the spacious lawns. Perth has broad green spaces on both sides of the river. This provides vistas, walk ways, cycle ways and various other activities.

Travel to Rottnest Island, a favourite local getaway due to its secluded beaches and relaxing environment, by high-speed ferry from Barrack Street Jetty. Embark on a wildlife cruise to look for seals, dolphins, sea birds and other marine life. Afterward, you have free time on the island to explore independently; perhaps rent a bike or go swimming, snorkelling and scuba diving off one of the white-sand beaches. Maybe visit one of the historical attractions to learn about the heritage of Rottnest, which was discovered by Dutch explorers in the 1600s and has since been home to shipwrecks, an Aboriginal penal colony and an internment camp. Today, as an A-class nature reserve, it is loved for its
