Your Perth Holiday
The capital of Western Australia may sound a bit off the beaten path, but Perth has plenty to offer holiday-makers who are looking for a special and unspoiled new destination. Start off your trip to this vibrant, yet relaxing, city by finding and booking your choice of plenty of great deals on flights to Perth with ebookers.
The Best Way to Find Perth Flights
Because Perth is an important city and a regional capital, different airlines compete to give you the best price for your air ticket to the city. Perth has only one international airport, but you can save a bit on your end by choosing between one or more airports that are convenient to your hometown. Sometimes, you can get better deals from smaller airports, and you can also save by keeping your arrival and departure dates flexible, so you can choose the least expensive options within a given period.
Getting Off the Plane and Into the City
The Perth Airport Shuttle is waiting for you as soon as you disembark from your flight. It services both domestic and international arrivals, and it takes passengers from the airport directly to most city hotels. You can get the same great deals from ebookers for your hotel as you get for your flight, so use our hotel booking service before you leave rather than looking for a hotel once you get there. Ebookers also saves you money compared to directly reserving a hotel room from a hotel's own site. The City Shuttle is a similar service for business travellers or visitors who are staying in the Central Business District, and reputable and reliable taxis operate at the airport on a regular basis.
Things to Do in Perth
Perth is a cosmopolitan city that is full of gourmet restaurants and friendly bars where you can mingle with the natives and meet fellow visitors from all over the world. Wine lovers visit the Swan Valley Vineyards outside the city to taste the quality wines for which the Perth region is known. Perth offers art galleries such as the landmark Art Gallery of Western Australia, which features authentic native Australian aboriginal art. Another quintessentially Australian attraction in Perth is the Subiaco Oval, the stadium where professional Australian football games are held.
Perth for Gourmets
Perth is full of world-class eateries that offer international and Australian cuisine. The Old Brewery features boutique Australian beers along with excellent seafood and meat dishes. It is located only a short hop from the business district, and it presents beautiful views of the nearby Swan River. Another favourite Perth restaurant is Lamont's; affiliated with the local vineyards of the same name, it offers its wine along with gourmet dishes that include vegetarian options.
The pleasure of your holiday begins when you find a low fare for your choice of flights to Perth with ebookers, and using ebookers to find your hotel deals saves you even more. You can enjoy spending the money you saved at Perth's fine restaurants or art galleries, or you can save it for the next flight you book with us.
Perth When to Go
From November through March, during Down Under's upside-down summer, Perth stays sunny and clear almost nonstop, especially at its coastal resorts in the south—Rockingham and Mandurah, among others. The city's position close to sea level and off the Indian Ocean in southwestern Australia gives it a sunny clime that's cooler and drier than much of the rest of western Australia. It's customary for cooling breezes to blow through town in the afternoons.
Not surprisingly, November through March also tends to be high season for competitive sailboat racing. If the city is hosting a racing cup competition on a particular weekend, hotel rates will soar, so be sure to plan your travel dates wisely. Another "no vacancy" period to watch out for is during the few weeks after Christmas, Boxing Day (December 26), and New Year's Day, a time span when most Aussies take their summer vacations. This vacation season wraps up on Australia Day (January 26) with Skyworks, arguably the city's most popular outdoor event, in which a laser show and fireworks display is launched from multiple points across the city near the Swan River.
Autumn usually peaks in April with the fall of maple leaves in the area forests—and the arrival of homemade maple syrup in shops. That said, days remain warm enough for attending outdoor events, such as movie screenings on Sandy Beach. On the far side of the calendar, the spring month of September brings the annual Fashion Week and the month-long Perth Royal Show, an agricultural and family fair with lots of prize-winning livestock and amusement-park rides for the kids.
During the winter, which peaks in July, temperatures stay cool but agreeable, with snow having never been recorded on the ground. Rain is a fact of life, though June is usually the wettest month—so keep a brolly (umbrella) handy at all times in case of a surprise downpour.
