With plenty of inspirational spaces, exceptional natural beauty and incredible diversity, Western Australia provides the spaces to connect and a fresh perspective on business events.

Basking in the warmth of a Mediterranean climate Perth is a city buzzing with a new energy reinvigorating visitors with its sophisticated style; cleanliness, clear blue skies and pristine coastline, yet the relaxed lifestyle and friendly vibe remain.

Experience Perth contains the essential ingredients for a great holiday; some of the country's best beaches, plenty of nightlife, bustling markets, inner city parks, outdoor dining and amazing marine adventures.

Experience Perth centres on Western Australia's capital of Perth, which sits beside the widest stretch of the meandering Swan River.  Australia's sunniest capital city, Perth enjoys 3000 hours of sunshine a year. No wonder it's been voted one of the world's most liveable cities. Locals here enjoy a relaxed outdoors lifestyle, as does the neighbouring port city of Fremantle, at the mouth of the Swan River.

The line-up of water-based fun includes boating, fishing and all dialogues of surfing. Fremantle's majestic historic architecture takes you back in time, while its marine heritage draws you to the ocean and a short ferry ride to Rottnest Island.

Finally if you would like to experience Australian wildlife in their natural environment, then the wonderful Karamia Sanctuary located about 40 minutes from Perth is worth a visit.
