Perth Q&A

What is Perth Australia famous for?

As the capital city of Western Australia, Perth is known for being the world’s most isolated city. While this might make it sound lonely, don’t be deceived! Its isolation comes with the benefits of having the Indian Ocean to one side of it and the Australian Outback to the other, making it an ideal location for those who love to spend time in nature. Compared to other Australian cities, it also has the lowest cost of living. As a result, you can make your Perth rental car go further.

How hot does it get in Perth?

During the summer in Perth, which runs between the 1st of December and the end of February, the average highest temperature is 30 degrees Celsius (or 86 degrees Fahrenheit). The highest ever recorded temperature in Perth was 46.2 degrees Celsius (115.2 degrees Fahrenheit), which was in February 1991.

What can families do in Perth?

Like many of Australia’s major cities, Perth has plenty to do when you’re visiting with your family. If you’re going to hire a car in Perth, consider trying the following attractions:

Kings Park

Located close to Perth’s CBD, Kings Park is an impressive 400-hectare open space that’s ideal for both strolling and running. If you’re travelling with your family, consider taking a picnic down there in the late afternoon and wait for the sunset to arrive.

The Maze Outback Splash

When the sun is beating down and you’re looking for somewhere to refresh yourself while having fun, head to the Maze Outback Splash. With an abundance of water rides that are both calm and thrilling, it’s a fantastic opportunity for family members of all ages to have fun.

Cottesloe Beach

With plenty of space to roam and patrols that make sure everyone’s safe, Cottesloe Beach is an excellent destination for a low-cost, family day out. It’s also an ideal place to go surfing, but if you’re new to the sport, you may want to consider contacting one of the local surf schools for an experience day.
