Perth Mint: This is a must-visit place in Perth for those on holiday in W.A. The article “My trip to Perth and SouthWest Australia” talks about different tourist attractions in Perth and uses the following words to describe the Perth Mint: “The Perth Mint has a long history as it was opened way back in 1899. Today, it is still operating at its original premises and has become one of Perth’s best tourist attractions. Here, you must catch the gold pour demonstration where a small gold bar (worth about AUD250,000) is created and then re-melted (held hourly).”

King’s Park: This is a really vast park that offers visitors outstanding views of the city. The huge, commanding boab tree is also something worth watching at the site. Other attractions include Lotterywest Federation Walkway, Synergy Parkland and DNA Tower.

Perth Zoo: For animal lovers visiting WA for a Margaret River camping holiday, this is a great place to be. At Perth Zoo, you can see various feeding sessions and live performances of animals like little penguins and elephants. Other animals include numbats, wombats and of course koalas and kangaroos.

Northbridge: Northbridge is the heart of Perth where you can find a wide range of restaurants, clubs and bars. The area gets really crowded on weekends. For food lovers, there are eateries offering delicious Chinese, Vietnamese and Italian food, kebabs and even Malaysian cuisine.

Western Australia Art Gallery: If you are someone with a passion for arts and craft, make sure to pay a visit to Western Australia Art Gallery to explore the various pieces of art on display here. The place will also appeal to those who want to learn about the aborigines.
