Perth is a beautiful part of the world comes with stunning beaches, gorgeous rivers, beautiful green parks and a bustling city that matches it within any other city within Australia or the world for that matter. Perth in Western Australia, is fast becoming tourist choice for travellers to the country and it is easy to see why with the amount of attractions that are on offer.
However, not everything in this city needs to come at a cost, there are places within the city region that are very affordable. In fact, many great attractions in Perth are free to enter, that’s right absolutely nothing. Of course, activities within the attraction may come at a cost, however, you can always ignore that and visit the attraction for what it truly is. A stunning location.
Attractions in Perth that are free to enter
King Park and Botanical Gardens
Right on the city’s edge, Kings Park comes with mesmerising views of the gorgeous Swan and Canning River and the Perth CBD itself. Free to enter and with free parking, bring a picnic lunch and explore the gardens, the bush and take a hike amongst the many trails that comes with Kings Park.
Marvel at the botanical garden, remember those who have fallen at the War Memorial, explore the Australian Bushland native trails and rise high on the Lottery West Federation Walkway, just don’t look down. If you do have a few dollars to spare, you can grab a coffee or a feed at the many café’s available in Kings Park.
New to Perth, Elizabeth Quay is on the edge of the city that you can almost touch it. While gorgeous views of the stunning skyrises will take your attention, you won’t help but be side tracked by Swan River and the fascinating Elizabeth Quay Bridge on the opposite side of the city.
It is fun to walk and gaze at this grand feature that has risen Perth to a whole new level when it comes to tourism in the state. On a scorching hot day, the kids can get drenched at the BHP Biliton Water Park that is free to use.
Naturally there is things at the Quay that do come a at a cost, restaurants, cafes, mini golf and ferry rides on the Swan River. Don’t let that stop you however, because Elizabeth Quay must be on your list when visiting Perth and then you can go shopping in the CBD afterwards.
Hillarys Boat Harbour
Hillarys Boat Harbour is one of the most picturesque place you can find in Perth. A little north of the city, the Boat Harbour, while free to enter, can be a little costly on the inside. Don’t let it be a deterrent, because strolling around Hillarys is as good as an activity within the harbour, with its beaches, luxury yachts and the Mighty Indian Ocean all there for show, it is a leisurely walk the whole family can enjoy. On a hot day, the kids can also jump off the pier and have a swim in the harbour.
If you do have money to spend, you’re in tourism heaven. On offer, there are great retail outlets, cafés and restaurants all available to spend your hard-earned dough. The kids can also have a splash at the Great Escape theme park, that is full of spine-tingling water slides and other fun, kid friendly attractions.
Spread out amongst 4000 hectares of Australian Nature, Whiteman Park is a very popular day for families in Perth. Only a fifteen-minute drive on the city, a day out is not near enough in Whiteman Park that is surrounded with open parklands, a typical Australian bush and kilometres worth of trails in length to either ride your push bike or enjoy an easy-going walk.
Free to enter, but of course there are attractions that do cost, but only if you wish. Because you could easily spend a day at Whiteman Park and not spend a cent, especially if chilling on the grass with a picnic bag is your kind of deal. Other attractions within the park include The Caversham Wildlife Park, The Village, Museums and tram rides to name only a few.
