Arriving in Perth
Book a flight to Perth with Qatar Airways and the first thing you’ll notice when you arrive is just how laid-back this beautiful city is. Energetic and vibrant and with a strong emphasis on culture and the arts, Perth is nevertheless a relaxed, easy-going city that welcomes visitors.
A fusion of traditional Victorian buildings and ultra-modern architecture gives Perth a very individualistic character. But its parks, beaches and open spaces are the real draw, giving it a spacious feel that offers little oases of calm in the heart of a busy city.
Modern Perth started as a British settlement in the early 19th century, and there is still plenty of evidence of the influence of the Victorians in the architecture, particularly in the Central Business District.
Look for Australia’s oldest mint, The Perth Mint, which is still producing coinage today. The Western Australian Museum charts the 45,000-year history of the indigenous Noongar people, while the Art Gallery of Western Australia recognises the ancient Aboriginal culture as well as more modern artists.
Other Perth highlights include a visit to the expansive Kings Park and Botanic Gardens, the Swan Bell Tower located on the banks of the Swan River, and Perth Zoo. The city’s beaches are also popular, with Cottlesloe Beach and Scarborough Beach particular favourites with the locals.
Qatar Airways flights to Perth arrive at Perth Airport. Visa restrictions for entry into the country will depend on your country of origin, length of stay and whether your trip is for business or pleasure.
