Things to know before visiting Perth
The local currency is Australian dollars and the international airport in Perth is about 8 miles to the east of the city. There is no rail connection into Perth but this is compensated for by many available buses, shuttles and taxis. An Electronic Travel Authority (ETA) is required for UK citizens to visit Australia and this can easily be taken care of when booking your trip. We can make sure you find the best flight and hotel deals particularly if you intend to purchase a flight from London to Perth or a flight from Manchester to Perth. To enjoy your holiday in Perth at the best possible price, make sure you contact us today.
What is the weather in Perth
Perth is lovely and warm even in the middle of winter, with average temperatures in July being in the high teens. This can be a perfect place for Brits to visit in order to get some sun, but don’t forget the Australian seasons are the opposite of ours. Christmas happens in the middle of their summer, and July and August are in the depths of winter. It’s not like winter in the UK though, as there will be no snow and ice for Western Australians; it is beach weather whatever time of year you visit. As Perth has so much lovely weather, all that is left for you to do is to contact us to book the cheapest discount holidays you can for your flight and hotel to Perth.
