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.

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.

Regional Terminals parking

Taking a private flight to a regional airport? Regional Terminals parking has your name on it. Leave your car there for 10 minutes or 8 days at standard rate – it’s just 2 minutes’ walk from the terminals.
