I will be traveling to Perth early May (Woohoo!!! :) )and i was wondering if anyone had any tips? or any suggestions on where to stay and what to see? Im very excited as its only 4 weeks away but im also very nervous as i have no idea what to expect so any suggestions are welcome . . . If anyones traveling at the same time let me know, would be great to start the journey meeting fellow travelers.

There are lot to see in Perth like you can go to Swan river foreshore, watch a sunset from cottesloe beach, Lake Monger etc. And be prepare to pack some necessary things like sunscreen and hat because Perth sun is too strong, light cotton clothing, sandals and shorts for summer.

Perth is a great place to visit . Every year thousands of people come to Perth to see the famous festivals and events, to explore its historical past, to photograph its heritage buildings and surely i will suggest to my friends about this Perth Travel.Thanks :)

Thanks very much Emma, any advice or info when you get over would be greatly appricated. Oh daisy, i dont know how ill manage with the heat, iv pale irish skin and would burn in the sun in a matter of minutes!!!!Wearing plenty sunscreen and staying out of it in the hottest hours, and im sure after a year or two ill get used of it!!!! Cant wait for my adventure to start.
