With both international and domestic terminals, Perth is a commercial hub of the Australian continent, boasting one of the country’s largest and busiest international airports.
Whether travelling here internally for a short visit or travelling overseas for a gap year, you’ll find plenty of natural beauty and green city landscapes to make your stay memorable.
Of course, if you’re travelling across seas, you have to remember that June is the start of our cooler season – in other words, our Winter in Perth has just begun! So if you, for example, are travelling over here for your UK Summer holidays, you’ll have to be prepared for our slightly cooler temperatures.
Even though We had the coldest day in 2018 Winter, our 2019’s Winter climate should still boast some good weather for any budding holiday makers!
So What Does Winter in Perth have in store?
