We walked here from our hotel & loved reaching the heights & sitting looking back over the city & the Swan River. It was breezy (as is all Perth) & worth it

Garden City Shopping Centre

Reviewed By Lulufluff - Bunbury, Australia

We do find it hard to find parking as the day progresses. Love the food hall there with a good variety of food.
The shops are great and I like there is Seating around while other family members shop.
Christmas decorations are up at the moment.
There was a stall set up where you can have your name on a bauble. This takes time so should do before you start shopping.

They guys definitely had their work cut out with me as I'd never done anything remotely like kitesurfing before. After one lesson I was addicted! The guys were so patient and knowledgeable. Thanks Andreas, Silvio & Marin!

Perth Zoo

Located just minutes from Perth City, Perth Zoo is a convenient and beautiful way to meet Australia's incredible wildlife. Ever wanted to immerse yourself in the Aussie outback but have Asia's stunning rainforests and Africa's wild savannah right around the corner? Perth Zoo, with over 1500 animals and some of the most beautiful Gardens in Western Australia, is your ultimate day out. Open every day of the year, Perth Zoo inspires and directs all work to save wildlife. Go for a bushwalk and discover the best of Australia's wildlife including koalas, emus, wallabies, kangaroos and our enormous saltwater crocodile, Simmo. Go for a safari through the African Savannah with rhinoceros, giraffe and lions or delve into the Asian Rainforest and meet elephants, Red Pandas, tigers, otters and a colony of endangered Sumatran Orangutans. You can explore at your own pace or take advantage of the many Zoo docent volunteers who have a myriad of stories to tell and help unlock some of the hidden secrets of the Zoo. With at least half a day needed to see the Zoo, we recommend a full day to make your experience the best it possibly can be! The carousel, wagon hire, zebra car rides, keeper presentations, free electric BBQ's, picnic tables and cafe make the experience all the more worth it. For the more adventurous get up close and book a daily Eye to Eye experience - you might feed a giraffe, pat a rock wallaby or meet our quokka!

Reviewed By denise g - Ithaca, New York

We were looking for a way to be outside on a beastly hot day and opted for an 8 minute ferry ride to the zoo in South Perth. We were pleasantly surprised by the lovely, thoughtful exhibits, the gorgeous vegetation, and the many, many animals we saw. We intended to stay a couple of hours, but ended up roaming throughout the zoo for five. We would have stayed longer, but the zoo was closing.
What a treasure!

The Tivoli Club of Western Australia

Reviewed By Sandra S - Perth, Western Australia, Australia

A great nights entertainment by some very talented amatures. We enjoyed a great show with a good variety of music, dance and comedy as well. Its a relaxed atmosphere, casual dress BYO and you get a chicken & chip dinner included in the cost. Great value at only $18-00. Highly recommend for a fun relaxed night with friends.
