Anyone who has booked flights to Perth may be interested in the recommendations about activities in the area from one travel journalist.

The Australian city of Perth offers holidaymakers a host of things to do and see, according to one travel journalist.

Writing for the Daily Mail, Gareth Huw Davies suggested some of the best ways to spend a break in Australia’s south-west.

Top of his list is a visit to the Perth Mint, one of the oldest money-producing locations in the world.

For people who want to see some of Australia’s natural beauty, he recommended taking a trip to nearby Bunbury to swim with dolphins or taking a drive along the coastline near Albany to try and spot some whales.

Mr Davies also pointed out that there are a number of whale-watching trips operating from towns along the coast, offering holidaymakers the opportunity to glimpse humpback whales and at the right time of year, there is also the chance to see blue whales.

For anyone who wants to marvel at a man-made attraction, a trip to see the world’s largest wind farm is a must, the journalist claimed.

Located just south of Albany, visitors can get a close-up view of the power generators. “Stroll along the boardwalks that weave between a dozen massive turbines,” he recommended.
