Things to do on holiday in Perth in Springtime

Recommended Posts

Going to Perth for a couple of weeks in Spring for a holiday and visiting family in Mandurah and Cottisloe.

 

What would anyone recommend as days out etc?

 

We have 2 x 10 year old girls who love animals, so we were thinking Rottnest Island for the Quokkas.

 

What other things might be good for us as a family?

 

Thanks

Pop down to Mandurah to see the dolphins - The cut is one of the best spots and spring is one of the best times of year

You can paddle with the dolphins down at Bunbury when they come right into the bay in the mornings - they'd love that I'm sure =) Enjoy!!

Something people rarely do is walk around Rottnest. It's about 15km, so not insignificant. Takes a leisurely 4 hours but it is pleasant. I used to walk it quite often when I lived there. (or riding is faster) Love Rottnest in spring before the crowds.


Nearly there! Don't drop the ball now guys! Vaccines are weeks away. Stay safe!
