It’s Australia, so if you leave without basking in some unspoiled natural splendor, you’re doing something wrong. Meet the local wildlife (you know, kangaroos, wombats and koalas) at Pinnaroo Valley Memorial Park and Caversham Wildlife Park. For a day spent picnicking, explore Kings Park and Botanic Garden, one of the largest city parks in the world. If you’re ready for a challenge, attempt Jacob’s Ladder if you dare — a twisting staircase of 242 steps that will get your heart pumping. Positioned along Western Australia’s coast, Perth is also primed for incredible day trips into the wild, with the Pinnacles Desert and Swan Valley are easily accessible.
