+ Perth Indulgence Weekend
- Day 1 / Morning: Perth to Kings Park and Cottesloe
Awaken the senses with a morning walk or run through the botanical gardens and bushlands of Kings Park – one of the largest inner-city parks in the world, with one of the most breathtaking city views on Earth - and also a great vantage point to check out Elizabeth Quay on the Swan River foreshore. It’s a ten-minute drive, or a 25-minute walk from the centre of Perth to reach Kings Park, and a visit between August and September colours the view with a dazzling display of Western Australian wild flowers. This will give you the appetite for a champagne brunch and more breathtaking views in Cottesloe. Within 20 minutes’ drive west from Kings Park, you’ll be at an oceanfront table overlooking iconic Cottesloe Beach.
- Day 1 / Afternoon: Cottesloe to Perth
- Return to the centre of Perth to refresh and rejuvenate with a spa treatment, selecting from some of Perth’s most luxurious day spas. That leaves you with plenty of time to take high tea or indulge in some retail therapy in the high-end fashion boutiques and fine jewellery galleries of King Street. Here, in Perth’s west end, you’ll find some of the most coveted treasures in the world, from Broome’s South Sea pearls to rare pink Kimberley diamonds.
- Day 1 / Evening: Perth
Perth’s fine dining restaurants plate up world-class degustation with local delicacies and views to die for. Take your pick from classic and fusion flavours and, if you’re visiting in the winter months, be sure to try Western Australia’s rare black truffles. Check out the Australian Good Food Guide for dining options. If you book your table early, you’ll have time to catch a live performance from some of Australia’s finest classical and contemporary artists at Perth Concert Hall or His Majesty’s Theatre. If you’re not planning an early start in the morning, step into Perth’s late night lounge scene for a nightcap or two before retreating to your five-star suite at a Perth city hotel.
- Day 2 / Morning: Perth to York
Your second day is all about indulging in adventures and flavours. If you’re visiting between the months of April and November, you can start your day early with a hot air balloon ride from Northam in the picturesque Avon Valley – experiencing the oldest form of flight as you watch the sunrise over rolling pastures. Then celebrate in the colonial tradition with a champagne breakfast in the charming country town of York – the first inland settlement for Western Australia's early colonists.
- Day 2 / Afternoon: York to Swan Valley
From York, follow the Great Eastern Highway west to the Swan Valley, Western Australia’s oldest wine region, and design your own tour of the cellar doors based on your personal wine preferences. Copies of the Swan Valley Wine Trail map are available at the Swan Valley Visitor Centre and most wineries. Spend your afternoon sampling the region’s premium and award-winning wines, enjoy a leisurely lunch overlooking the vineyards, sample gourmet produce and browse the art galleries.
- Day 2 / Evening: Swan Valley to Perth
- Stay into the evening to indulge in more of the Swan Valley’s fine flavours and follow the path of the Swan River back towards the city lights of Perth’s iconic skyline.
- Day 3 / Morning: Perth to Rottnest Island
Take a scenic flight over Perth city, the Indian Ocean and Rottnest Island, touching down in time for lunch and a personalised island tour in the afternoon. Or charter a boat or catamaran for the day to cruise across the channel, feasting on a seafood lunch on board and hopping between Rottnest’s 63 stunning beaches and 20 beautiful bays. Between September and early December, you may also get to witness the migration of the majestic humpback whales as they make their journey south, leading their newborn calves to the summer feeding grounds.
- Day 3 / Afternoon: Rottnest Island to Perth
- On returning to Perth from Rottnest, seek out a fitting finish to three days of indulgence. Choose from Perth’s fine dining restaurants offering the finest views of Perth’s city lights reflecting in the Swan River, or sunset over the Indian Ocean.
