Parmelia Hilton Perth
Perth is the largest city in Western Australia, a country sometimes abbreviated as AU. It's also incredibly isolated, since the closest neighbouring city, Adelaide, is over 2,200 kilometres away. Even so, you'll find abundant reasons to explore without going elsewhere. Since Perth boasts over 12,500 miles of coastline it's popular with people who want to sunbathe, surf or snorkel. Many tourists also book hotels in the Central Business District. Located on the northern shores of the Swan River, it's a hotspot for nightlife and gourmet cuisine. The area even features Langley Field, a place where private airplanes can land.
Looking for one of the most thorough ways to experience culture after landing at Perth Airport? Ignore the jet lag and feel energised by the vibrant atmosphere of Northbridge. Noted for abundant artistic opportunities, it features the Art Gallery of Western Australia and The Blue Room Theatre among many other attractions and venues. Treat yourself to some memorable food too. Whether you'd like a heaping portion of Vietnamese noodles or would prefer a slow-cooked prime rib steak, those options are available, along with many other scrumptious possibilities. This neighbourhood has a distinctive multicultural flair and it's especially evident in the restaurants, which offer flavours from all over the world. You can also go with Perth favourites like locally caught prawns or roast quail. Then, top off your day by dancing in the spirited atmosphere of a nightclub. This neighbourhood near the Central Business District features some of Perth's best places that come alive after the sun goes down. Deejays and disco balls set the mood for good times.
Perth is packed with pleasing ways to enjoy the outdoors. Take a break from the fast pace of city life by retreating to Kings Park. Even larger than New York City's Central Park, this point of interest spans more than 400 hectares and attracts approximately six million people per year. The park features a boab tree that's over 750 years old, plus the huge DNA Tower, which offers spectacular city views for people willing to climb the 101 steps to reach the top. Alternatively, board a ferry bound for Rottnest Island, a car-free destination less than 20 kilometres away from Perth. The quiet island will take you back to memories of simpler times as you explore the Wadjemup Bidi walking trails, which encompass 45 kilometres and five sections that include the Salmon Bay, salt lakes and northern beaches. While visiting the island, you may even encounter the quokka, a friendly marsupial found only in Western Australia, so make sure not to leave your camera in your hotel.
One of the most popular things for Perth’s visitors to do is take tours of the Perth Mint. Established in 1899, this facility manufactures platinum, silver and gold coins for a global market. During your time there, marvel at the largest gold coin in the world, crafted on site in 2011 and featuring the image of a kangaroo. Weighing one tonne, it measures over 80 centimetres wide and is made of 99.9 per cent gold. Participate in reflection at St. George's Cathedral. Located behind Perth’s town hall, this Anglican house of worship opened in 1958 and includes beautiful examples of Gothic Revival architecture. Colourful stained glass and a huge pipe organ are just a couple of interesting things to look for during your visit. There’s also a tranquil and welcoming soldier’s chapel dedicated to members of the Australian Imperial Force of Western Australia who fought and died in World War I. Because it’s not far from shops and cultural attractions, many visitors stop in while spending time outside their hotels.
Maybe you're visiting this destination to celebrate a romantic occasion, such as an anniversary, or perhaps you're just looking for memorable ways to spend time in the presence of someone you love. Fortunately, Perth offers plentiful opportunities for couples to rekindle the spark that made them initially fall for each other. Get started by booking a spa retreat for the two of you. Many of the area's options feature eco-friendly products and customised treatments so you and your partner can relax, feel rejuvenated and potentially leave the facility feeling more energised than you have in a long while. Also, consider spending some light-hearted time at one of Perth's farmers' markets. They represent the offerings of some of the best growers in the region. After picking out some produce to share, snack on it before settling down in your seat at the His Majesty's Theatre. This venue is the main performance space of the West Australian Opera Company, which puts on top-notch productions all year.
