A modern metropolis of glassy skyscrapers, waterside boulevards, and lush residential neighborhoods, Perth sits on the edge of the Swan Coastal Plain.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at The House of Honey and Glen Cowans' Studio at the Roundhouse. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like St. Mary's Cathedral and St. George's Cathedral. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Perth: Lane Pool Reserve (in Dwellingup), Mullaloo Beach (in Mullaloo) and Mandurah War Memorial (in Mandurah). Next up on the itinerary: discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, identify plant and animal life at Rio Tinto Naturescape Kings Park, don't miss a visit to Stirling Cottage, and kick back and relax at Trigg Beach.

Founded as a military outpost in 1826, Albany is the oldest town in Western Australia, just barely gaining this title by being settled two years earlier than Fremantle and Perth.
You've now added Dolphin & Whale Watching to your itinerary. Kick off your visit on the 21st (Thu): view the masterpieces at Torbay Glass Studio, stop by South Coast WoodWorks Gallery, then do a tasting at Singlefile Wines, and finally take in the dramatic natural features at Elephant Rocks. Keep things going the next day: contemplate the long history of Princess Royal Fortress, then contemplate the long history of The Albany Convict Gaol & Museum, then get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour, and finally trek along Ellen Cove Boardwalk.
