Perth City by Hire Car

From there it is a short hop to the enormous Kings Park, where you can marvel at some of Australia’s unique plant life in the Botanic Garden, go on a treetop walk and enjoy some of that endless Perth sunshine with a picnic overlooking the Swan River and CBD. If picnics are not your thing, head back into town to sample some of Perth’s flourishing culinary delights in one of the many cafes and restaurants around town. Another way to discover some of Western Australia’s rich cultural history is with a guided walking tour of Kings Park and a visit to the Aboriginal Art and Craft Gallery, located in the park
