Visiting Perth, Australia on a Budget

All types of hotel accommodation is
available in Perth, Western Australia.

Perth, Western Australia, is set on the picturesque banks of the Swan River. Considered the most isolated city in the world, Perth is also one of the most liveable cities in Australia and in the world. Perth may be isolated, but it is far from desolate. This lovely city is home to award-winning restaurants and wineries, stunning national parks and gardens, specialty shops and a well-developed public transportation system that includes a free bus service. Budget hotels in Perth are located in the CBD and in suburbs such as Belmont, Scarborough Beach, Sorrento and Connolly and Rottness Island. Business travellers and tourists are sure to find accommodations to suit their needs.

In fact, hotel and accommodation options in Perth are quite similar to those available in other capital cities, such as Melbourne and Sydney. Prices, however, tend to be lower since Perth’s cost of living is lower. Because Sydney has the highest cost of living, its hotels and accommodations tend to be pricier. Melbourne’s cost of living is slightly less than Sydney’s, and its accommodations are priced midway between Sydney’s and Perth’s.

Your choices for accommodations in Perth include backpackers’ hostels beginning at just $27 a night, bed and breakfasts beginning at $160 a night and eco spas beginning at $395 a night. Budget hotels average $120 a night while five-star luxury hotels average $300 a night. Serviced apartments are ideal for long-term visitors and cost an average of $117 a night. Accommodations can often take the largest bite out of your holiday budget, so these lower prices may leave more in your pocket for leisure time activities, of which Perth has many, thanks to the 3,000 hours of sunshine it receives annually.

In fact, all that sun has made it one of the sunniest cities in the world, and the pleasant weather lures its residents and visitors outside to enjoy its incredible architecture, outdoor dining and marine adventures. Sailing, surfing, swimming and snorkelling are top activities locally. Nearby Lancelin attracts sand boarders and other adventurers to its massive sand dunes, while the Lotterywest Foundation Walkway offers a bird’s eye view of Kings Park and the Botanic Gardens. Visitors to Perth will want to stop off in the Swan Valley to tour the region’s various wineries and sample wines, cheeses and so much more.

The city provides a variety of transportation options, including taxis, buses and city shuttles. Whether you want to spend your time shopping, swimming with dolphins, golfing, sailing, picnicking, exploring galleries and museums or checking out the nightlife, Perth is sure to keep you busy.
