It is a place for outdoor activities like cycling along the foreshore, playing volleyball on Cottesloe Beach or kayaking through the Swan Valley and the beautiful warm weather makes this possible almost year-round. Whether you’re watching the sunset over the city from Kings Park, exploring the historic seaside town of Fremantle or making a country escape to the picturesque Margaret River wine region, travelling to the Western side of Australia is well worth the trip.
