Few places make you feel more like an elite visitor than Perth. One of the most remote capital cities in the world, this beautiful, laid back spot is the perfect place to visit if you want to soak up the sun and enjoy all of the pleasures of a cosmopolitan locale without the hassles of many other major cities. Because this city is not exactly a tourist hub, there is rarely a bad time to find cheap flights to Perth.
Best time to go to Perth
The peak season in Perth is between January and December. During the end and beginning of the year, this city is exceptionally warm, giving weary travellers a good reason to lay back and relax.
If you have a desire to mingle with the locals instead of tourists, July through August is a great time to visit Perth. Most school holidays begin in July, thus allowing travellers to socialize in the temperate, tranquil atmosphere of the city.
The off season in Perth begins in mid-April and ends around June. Tourists are few during this time, and flights are inexpensive. Because of the warm but mild temperatures during these months, you will be able to freely indulge in a leisurely bike ride or a long lounge on the beach or, if you prefer a bit of cultural sightseeing, you can also visit one of the many museums or art exhibitions – all without interruption.
