PICTURE-PERFECT PERTH

Kryssning från Perth (Fremantle), Australia

If you’re planning a cruise from Perth, Australia, make sure to add some time before or after your sailing to really get to know this beautiful gem on Australia’s west coast. A world away from the lively bustle of other Australian capitals like Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, Perth has everything you could hope for in a vacation destination — perpetual blue skies, beautiful beaches, amazing restaurants and bars, and an easygoing, down-to-earth vibe. It’s also home to plenty of attractions to keep you busy for a few days — like the Art Gallery of Western Australia, where you can find beautiful paintings of Perth's past, and The Bell Tower, which offers a perfect vantage point for photographers. You could spend hours ogling marine life at the fascinating Aquarium of Western Australia, but if you want to make a splash yourself head to Mettams Pool, a calm lagoon that’s popular for reef snorkeling.
