How to Spend 2 Days in Perth
With two days in Perth, you can spend one day exploring the top sights and cultural attractions in the city, and another relishing an activity that highlights the region’s natural beauty, history, or winemaking. Here are a few ways to create a 48-hour itinerary in Perth, Australia’s 4th-most populous city.
 
Day 1: City Sightseeing
Morning: Get an introduction to Perth on a morning walking tour of the city center’s cultural sights while enjoying a cup of coffee. Then explore independently on a hop-on hop-off bus tour, or perhaps check out attractions such as the Perth Zoo, Aquarium of Western Australia, or Perth Mint.  

Afternoon: Separating central and western Perth from the southern suburbs, the Swan River is the flowing heart of the city. Take a lunch or sightseeing cruise to admire the riverfront scenery, which includes King’s Park, yacht clubs, and impressive homes. Many boats depart near the Bell Tower, where you can visit the observation deck.
 
Night: You have another chance to experience the Swan River on a dinner cruise, when the more romantic evening hours allow you to admire the twinkling city lights while enjoying a full meal and sipping Australian wines. Alternatively, discover the local bar scene on a walking tour of Perth watering holes.

Day 2: Surrounding Activities
Morning: Hop on the ferry from either Perth or Fremantle to spend the day on Rottnest Island, known for its outdoor activities, including swimming at white-sand beaches, bike riding, and looking for resident quokkas. If you don’t have all day, you can still get out on the water with a morning whale-watching cruise from Hillarys Boat Harbour.
 
Afternoon: Head to the Swan Valley wine region on a half-day tour of culinary delights such as wine, beer, cheese, and chocolate. If you’re more of a history buff, opt for a tour to the port town of Fremantle, known for its café scene and historical attractions—particularly Fremantle Prison, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
 
Night: You have another chance to check out the Swan Valley on a twilight winery experience with dinner. Alternatively, explore Perth’s dining establishments on your own with a restaurant and bar discount pass, which offers savings at participating businesses.
