And if you’re an out of towner with some time to spare exploring Perth, lucky you! It might be one of the most isolated places on the planet, but boy is it beautiful. Perpetual blue skies, gentle Indian ocean breezes and powder-sand beaches make it easy on the eye, while global street food, boho bars and cool street art fill your belly and warm your heart. Thanks to its wonderful airport, it’s well connected to Sri Lanka, Singapore and Bali, as well as having a direct flight to London. And there are tons of terrific things to see and do here. For instance, culture vultures have rich pickings at the Western Australian Museum and Art Gallery of Western Australia, lush Kings Park offers scenic cityscape views and Swan River scenes, and an Indigenous Heritage Tour enlightens you on the customs of the local Noongar and Wadjuk cultures.
If you’re yearning for sun, sea and sand, check out Cottesloe Beach, Mullaloo Beach and Scarborough Beach, and the Fremantle Markets offer everything from fresh local fare to clothing and artisan souvenirs. And you can also take a boat out to Rottnest Island to see the Quokkas (miniature macropods that are a bit like small, chubby kangaroos), snorkel and stretch out on the beach. And if you like horrible histories and things that go bump in the night, catch a scary Fremantle Prison Torchlight Tour – if you dare, that is.

Compare parking at Perth Airport
The total number of parking bays at Perth Airport is over 18,000 and it’s expected to top 35,000 in a few years’ time as part of an expansion project.
Perth Airport’s history stretches back to 1938, when a parcel of land was purchased for its construction at Guildford, an area granted by Governor James Stirling to Scottish immigrant John Scott. However, before civilian flights could begin, WWI started, and the airport was commandeered by the Royal Australian Air Force and United States Navy. Civilian services from PER actually did start before the end of the war, with Australian National Airways and Qantas Empire Airways services commencing in 1944. The airport expanded during the jet age of the 1960s and 1970s, a new international terminal was built in the 1980s and today it processes 3.9 million passengers a year.
What parking is there at Perth Airport?
The short answer is – lots of different types. But you deserve a more detailed answer and that’s exactly what you’re about to get.
If you’re open-minded, it can be worth having a quick look on comparison sites as they’re sometimes able to offer deals you’ll struggle to find elsewhere.

The short-term parking lots at PER are located at Terminal 1, Terminal 2, Terminal 3 and Terminal 4. Just 2-3 minutes’ walk from check-in, these car parks are a great choice for anyone who’s taking a long weekend break or business trip and wants minimum hassle. You can park here from any period from 10 minutes to 12 days at standard rates, but an increased rate is applied for anything beyond this duration. All of the short-term car parks have pick-up and drop-off areas at the front.
Staying away for an extended trip? Long-term parking is your best option. Located in all terminals, this parking is charged at a standard rate for stays of between one hour and nine days. The charge for any stay longer is far cheaper than that applied in short-term parking, so this is the most economical option for longer trips. Long-term parking isn’t right next to the terminals and you’ll need to hop on a shuttle bus to get there – it runs 24/7, every 10 minutes.
Busy businessperson off to strike a career-defining deal or meet a first-class contact to discuss a collaboration?

Literally one minutes’ walk from the terminal, this is the best choice if you’re a go-getter in a hurry to get places.
