Where should I stay in Perth?
- For tourist attractions: Staying in Perth CBD means you get to stay close to the city's major attractions. Within walking distance are Kings Park, Perth Mint, Perth Arena and Cathedral Square.
- For beaches: Cottesloe Beach is Perth's local patch of sand and is a fine one at that. It's a family friendly beach with soft sands and a vibrant promenade of cafes and shops.
- For nightlife: Elizabeth Quay is a centre of entertainment and activity. Top-notch dining venues overlook the Swan River, and art exhibitions and memorials speckle the space.
- For history: Fremantle is a historical tourist district moments from Perth CBD. Home to Fremantle Prison, which was in operation from the 1950s to the early 1990s, its architecture features colonial-style buildings that were built by convicts. The prison is open for visitors.
- For romance: 25 minutes north-east of Perth CBD is Swan Valley. It's a relaxing region filled with local produce, wineries, craft breweries, parklands, spa retreats and local music. Visit with your loved one or with your young family.
Where to stay in Perth for cheap
Even within Perth city centre you can uncover fairly affordable homestays, though you may need to make some sacrifices. For example, the cheapest stays in the CBD are shared apartments with either your host or other guests.
Those who prefer their own space can look to surrounding suburbs for their stay. Mount Lawley is two train stops out of Perth and offers homes for cheap. West Perth is another option with spacious and affordable rentals.
