Day Trips from Perth: Your Next Escape Awaits

Who’s ready for a change in scenery? A generous dose of waves and sand in your toes, wildlife encounters, a splash of arts and culture, or perhaps something more indulgent?

Hit pause on city life – adventure’s calling!

The latest issue of the BGC Home Magazine offers a handpicked list of day trips that deliver big on experience.

  • Rottnest Island: A quick ferry from Perth, Fremantle or Hillary’s lands you on Rottnest Island, a coastal getaway with beautiful beaches, turquoise waters, and the friendly quokka. Here, travel is best on two wheels or by snorkel fins. The island’s coral reefs and shipwrecks are as inviting as its beachside cafes.
  • Swan Valley: Perth’s very own Swan Valley is a tapestry of tastes and terrains. Sweeping vineyards, cellar doors, chocolate and cheese tastings promise a feast for the senses.
  • Yanchep: A natural playground less than an hour north of the city. Wander through the Yanchep National Park bushland home to kangaroos and koalas, explore its network of limestone caves, or relax by the Yanchep lagoon’s calm waters.
  • Mandurah: Love the water? Visit Mandurah, where you’re spoilt for choice for waterside activities; boat cruises, fishing, dolphin encounters, water sports, and fresh seafood – it’s a coastal city that merges leisure with nature.
  • Perth Hills: Inhale the scent of green in the Perth Hills. The treetop walk at Mundaring’s Beelu National Park gives you a birds-eye view of the trees beyond, and there’s scenic trails for those that love to hit the dirt for bushwalking or mountain bike riding.
  • Serpentine: Explore the tranquillity of Serpentine National Park, 55km southeast of Perth, where Serpentine Falls cascades into a cool, clear pool. It’s a haven for picnickers, photographers, bushwalkers, and those seeking solace worlds away from the hustle.

Pack the car, it’s time to discover all these delights at your doorstep!
