Perth Tours & Vacations

The view of the Perth skyline from across the Swan River, in Western Australia at sunset

A western adventure awaits you on a tour from Perth.

Australia's largest state may seem daunting, but starting your trip from Western Australia's capital city of Perth can put you on track for the journey of a lifetime. Head south to Margaret River for some fantastic seaside wines, continue North to Australia's less famous Ningaloo Reef  with its pristine beaches and turquoise waters or stop in at Broome where you'll find camels and red earth as you've never seen it.   

Tours to Perth

Let's create an exclusive trip for your group.

Tours from Perth

Head West to the beachside city of Perth. Here you'll find untouched beaches and coral reefs, Margaret River wine region and desert landscapes in Australia's largest state. You'll see a side of Australia like you always imagined it, with red earth, cattle stations and mining communities that you will experience firsthand.

Perth highlights

Perth travel faqs, do i need a covid-19 vaccine to join an intrepid trip.

Trips from 1 January 2023 onwards

From 1 January 2023, Intrepid will no longer require travelers to provide proof of vaccination against COVID-19 (excluding all Polar trips and select adventure cruises).

However, we continue to strongly recommend that all Intrepid travelers and leaders get vaccinated to protect themselves and others.

Specific proof of testing or vaccination may still be required by your destination or airline. Please ensure you check travel and entry requirements carefully.

How can I get to Western Australia?

There are several ways to get to Western Australia including flying, catching public transport, and self-driving, with the most time-efficient one being different depending on where you're traveling from.

There are over 10 public airports you can fly into in Western Australia but the most popular one is Perth Airport. From there, it's easy to organise transportation to your final destination of either Margaret River or further inland. 

When is the best time to visit Western Australia?

There's no one 'best time' to visit Western Australia as each season promises unique activities and breathtaking scenery.

The most popular time to visit is during the summer season (December, January, and February) as it coincides with Australia's school holidays and the weather is warm and sunny.

If you're wanting a holiday without the crowds, the months of March-May and September-October are the best times to visit as the weather is still reasonably warm and enjoyable, especially if you're spending long periods of time outside. 

What are the best places to visit in Western Australia?

Western Australia is full of stunning landscapes and special natural attractions so it's hard to fit them all into one list but we'll give it a go. Here are our picks on the best places to visit in Western Australia: 

  • Rottnest Island
  • The Bungle Bungles 
  • Ningaloo Reef

What should I pack for a tour in Western Australia?

Our Western Australian tours are all about action and adventure so there is no need to bring any fancy clothes. Sunscreen, sunglasses and a hat are a must, even in winter, as the sun reflects off the water and the white sand of the Margaret River region and Ningaloo Reef.

Bring a good pair of walking shoes so you can explore the national parks comfortably. A light jumper is useful if you are going to be out on the water for lengthy periods of time. 

What kind of animals live in Western Australia?

There are plenty of animals to spot during your travels around Western Australia including 141 of Australia's 207 mammal species (25 of which are only found in WA).

Around 400 reptile species, and roughly 1,600 marine species.

Tick them off the list below as you go: 

  • Bottlenose dolphins
  • Whale sharks
  • Australian sea lions

Are Intrepid trips accessible for travelers with disabilities?

We are committed to making travel widely  accessible , regardless of ability or disability. We do our best to help you see the world, regardless of physical or mental limitations. 

We are always happy to talk to travelers with disabilities and see if we can help guide them toward the most suitable itinerary for their needs and, where possible, make reasonable adjustments to our itineraries.

“Life can change dramatically, but sometimes you aren’t able to change as quickly on a personal level. You end up feeling like a spectator,” frontman Dave Bayley shared in a statement. “And then you are asked and expected to be a certain type of person, a different person. But…I wasn’t sure how. It confused me to the point of not knowing who I was or if anything was real.” Eventually, he accepted a simple truth: “Human connection and the love between us is much bigger, more important, and more complex than anything else.”

Human Musical Group Sensations GLASS ANIMALS: TOUR OF EARTH

With special guest kevin abstract, glass animals, kevin abstract, concert information.

Human Music Group Sensations Glass Animals announced their 2024 global TOUR OF EARTH. The 41-date tour sees the band headlining the biggest venues of their career thus far and kicks off in August with stops across North America and Europe including Cincinnati, Ohio on Sunday, August 25 at Riverbend Music Center with very special guest Kevin Abstract .

Yesterday, Glass Animals announced details of their highly anticipated fourth studio album, I Love You So F***ing Much , set for release on July 19th. The album is introduced by the band’s new single, “Creatures in Heaven,” out now—listen HERE and watch the visualizer HERE .

I Love You So F***ing Much is the follow-up to 2020’s critically revered Dreamland , which sold over 12 million copies globally and gave life to “ Heat Waves ,” the record-breaking song that became the biggest international hit from a British band in almost 30 years . It was the first song by a British band since the Spice Girls’ “Wannabe” in 1995 to claim #1 for five consecutive weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 , and the first song to reach #1 with a single writer and producer since Pharell’s “Happy” —leading to the pop world’s biggest acts, including Florence Welch, all wanting to work with Glass Animals frontman, songwriter, and producer, Dave Bayley. But the birth of I Love You So F***ing Much was an existential crisis. Dave found himself struggling to make sense of this newfound global stardom, having watched it all happen while the world was in lockdown.

He says, “Life can change dramatically, but sometimes you aren’t able to change as quickly on a personal level. You end up feeling like a spectator. And then you are asked and expected to be a certain type of person, a different person. But…I wasn’t sure how. It confused me to the point of not knowing who I was or if anything was real.” It took being stranded on a cliff in a wooden house on stilts during one of California’s biggest storms in history to push that feeling into a full existential crisis. In forced isolation, watching trees tumble down mountains and assuming “death was coming,” Dave began asking questions of himself, of the universe, and of the human experience: namely, love. As he came to accept himself as an introvert, Dave realized that “human connection and the love between us is much bigger, more important, and more complex than anything else.” “Creatures in Heaven” is the sublime first glimpse into ten intimate love stories set against the backdrop of the universe.

The Heavenly Kingdom on Red Square at Spring Twilight

The Heavenly Kingdom on Red Square at Spring Twilight

The view of Pokrovsky Sobor (Intersession cathedral), the original name of St. Basil's Cathedral, on Red Square in Moscow, when lights were just on against the darkening sky at the begining of April, 2014. The church's design is based on deep religious symbolism and was meant to be an architectural representation of the New Jerusalem - the Heavenly Kingdom described in the Book of Revelation of St. John the Divine.

The famous St. Basil's Cathedral was commissioned by Ivan the Terrible and built on the edge of Red Square between 1555 and 1561. The cathedral was built to commemorate Ivan the Terrible's successful military campaign against the Tartar Mongols in 1552 in the besieged city of Kazan. Victory came on the feast day of the Intercession of the Virgin, so the Tsar chose to name his new church the Cathedral of the Intercession of the Virgin on the Moat, after the moat that ran beside the Kremlin. The church was given the nickname "St. Basil's" after the "holy fool" Basil the Blessed (1468-1552), who was hugely popular at that time with the Muscovites masses and even with Ivan the Terrible himself.

St. Basil's is a delightful array of swirling colors and redbrick towers. Its design comprises nine individual chapels, each topped with a unique onion dome and each commemorating a victorious assault on the city of Kazan. In 1588 the ninth chapel was erected to house the tomb of the church's namesake, Basil the Blessed. The eight onion dome-topped towers are positioned around a central, ninth spire, forming an eight-point star. The number eight carries great religious significance; it denotes the day of Christ's Resurrection (the eighth day by the ancient Jewish calendar) and the promised Heavenly Kingdom - the kingdom of the eighth century, which will begin after the second coming of Christ. The eight-point star itself symbolizes the Christian Church as a guiding light to mankind, showing us the way to the Heavenly Jerusalem and it represents the Virgin Mary, depicted in Orthodox iconography with a veil decorated with three eight-pointed stars. The cathedral's star-like plan carries yet more meaning - the star consisting of two superimposed squares, which represent the stability of faith, the four corners of the earth, the four Evangelists and the four equal-sided walls of the Heavenly City.
