Some of the main sights to see around Perth are Kings Park and the Botanic Gardens, Elizabeth Quay and the State Buildings. Like Melbourne, Perth also has its own network of laneways and arcades that are being revived with small businesses and street art.
Discover produce, wines and chocolates of the region, meet the makers and sample their creations, too.
Perth has a fascinating heritage from the settlers and explorers through to convicts, sailors and gold miners. A Fremantle walking tour will uncover all this along with its architectural heritage, such as colonial buildings built by convicts and the renowned Fremantle Prison. 30 minutes from the centre of Perth, Fremantle also boasts great coffee and markets to explore on foot.
City of Perth iCity volunteer tour guides offer a different free walking tour each day of the week, departing the Information Kiosk in the Murray Street Mall at 2pm. They also operate orientation walking tours every day at 11am Monday to Saturday or midday on Sundays.
You can tour Kings Park and the Botanic Garden with free, volunteer-led walking tours up to three times a day. Booking is generally not necessary.

finder.com.au is one of Australia's leading comparison websites. We compare from a wide set of major banks, insurers and product issuers.
finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product. You should consider whether the products featured on our site are appropriate for your needs and seek independent advice if you have any questions.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or "Advertisement" are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category. We encourage you to use the tools and information we provide to compare your options and find the best option for you.
The identification of a group of products, as 'Top' or 'Best' is a reflection of user preferences based on current website data. On a regular basis, analytics drive the creation of a list of popular products. Where these products are grouped, they appear in no particular order.
Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
Providing or obtaining an estimated insurance quote through us does not guarantee you can get the insurance. Acceptance by insurance companies is based on things like occupation, health and lifestyle. By providing you with the ability to apply for a credit card or loan we are not guaranteeing that your application will be approved. Your application for credit products is subject to the Provider's terms and conditions as well as their application and lending criteria.
