    Car Rental Perth

    Perth Car RentalStart your adventure down under with a visit to Kings Park, one of Perth's inner-city parklands. Catch a flick here at the open air cinema if travelling in summer or brush shoulders with the iconic blossoming wildflowers all year round. Visit the Botanical Gardens website to find free activities and upcoming events around Kings Park. The radiant sun might be hard for some to bear so be sure to cool off with a swim at Scarborough Beach, one of Perth's many beautiful beaches. Located only 20 minutes away from the CBD, this coastal hotspot is perfect to swim, surf and grab a bite to eat.

    For those who would prefer to shop rather than swim, head to the city centre for a cluster of luxury shops at the King Street junction and Hay Street and Murray Street malls for more mainstream stores. Suburbs just out of the city including Mount Lawley and Leederville, are where you will find a combination of independent boutiques and designer fashion stores. Make time over the weekend to check out the Fremantle Markets, just 30 minutes from the city centre. Find everything from fresh produce to homewares and jewellery to didgeridoos.

    After browsing the markets, Fremantle is a great area to wine and dine. It is littered with restaurants and cafes and is famous for its cappuccino strip, known for eccentric crowds and consecutive coffee shops that line the street. Don't be afraid to try a large western rock lobster, formally known as crayfish, and another popular local speciality, chilli mussels, available at most restaurants.

    For visitors who want to get out of Perth city and unwind, head south towards Armadale. Discover Armadale's hub of picnic locations, walk trails, shopping areas, and eateries. The History House Museum displays local exhibitions about Armadale's heritage and offers a wide range of activities that appeal to all ages. If you are a family of animal lovers, a visit to Rockingham is a must. It is only 700 metres from Penguin Island, a nature reserve just off the coast that is home to dolphins, little penguins and sea lions. A trip to the Margaret River Region is worth the three-hour drive for visitors who want to taste some of Australia's best wine. Try local chocolate and fresh produce, then watch the locals surf the world class waves in the region.
