North Beach Vacations
North Beach is a great place to base yourself in Perth as a large number of the area’s most popular attractions are nearby. Two of the most interesting places to explore are the fascinating Hillarys Boat Harbour and the remarkable Aquarium of Western Australia. And don’t miss the Marangaroo Golf Course and Cottesloe Beach.
To really get a feel for Perth, visit one of its museums and theaters. Stroll around the exhibits and enjoy the atmosphere of the SCITECH Discovery Centre, the Fire Safety Education Centre and Museum and the Western Australian Museum. Book seats for a live performance at the Playhouse Theatre, the Perth Concert Hall and the Yirra Yaakin Theatre Company. Pay a visit to the Art Gallery of Western Australia and the Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts, to get your fix of art.
If the sun is out, follow the lead of the locals who know the area best and make the most of the nearby green spaces. Follow the paths through botanical displays, read a book, or just enjoy the fresh air at the Kings Park and Botanic Garden.
Head to the Murray Street Mall and the Hay Street Mall for a satisfying dose of retail therapy.
For those travelling without kids there are some great places to relax, including Swan Brewery.
Sports lovers can cheer on the West Coast Eagles Australia rules football (AFL) team in winter and the Fremantle Dockers at Subiaco Oval, the city’s sporting heart and soul. Relive the match’s greatest moments with local sports fanatics after the game in one of the nearby watering holes.
After spending the day taking in the sights around North Beach, get a good nights sleep in one of the area’s popular hotels or serviced apartments. Check out the rooms and rates at the Parmelia Hilton Perth, the Travelodge Perth, or the Rendezvous Grand Hotel Perth Scarborough.
