Favourite Heritage Trails for Perth Visitors

Perth, one of the most remote cities of Australia, lies on the country’s western coast and is arguably among the most scenic places on the planet. But it is not just the scenery that has led travellers from all over the world to buy tickets aboard international flights to visit this metropolis. Culture vultures visiting Perth can choose from the numerous heritage trails near the city for a memorable holiday experience. Following are the favourite treks among visitors arriving in this part of Australia

On the Banks of the Swan River

The Swan River is often considered to be the life blood for this part of Australia so it is only natural that a prominent trail near the metropolis travels along it. Over a 15 kilometre distance which may be covered by car, on bicycle or on foot, travellers can experience the true beauty of this picturesque nation. Though scenic flights, hot air balloon rides and cruises are in vogue, this trail continues to be a top pick as it connects key landmarks like Eric Singleton Bird Sanctuary, Halliday House, Pensioner Guard Cottage and much more. These attractions are open round the year though entry tickets may be required in some cases.   

Timeless Guilford

Guilford is a historic town established back in the 19th century and it has been preserved almost unchanged to reflect the origins of Australia. Located only a short distance from Perth, it is easy to reach for anyone reaching the city by purchasing tickets onboard long-haul flights. The town is chock-a-block with numerous old buildings including the old courthouse which currently operates as the Tourist Centre. Those seeking to purchase memorabilia of their trip to the land down under would definitely enjoy browsing through the many antiques as well as arts and crafts stores that abound here. This trek through living history is definitely incomplete without a trip to a local tearoom. At the tearoom one can enjoy the hot beverage the same way that the English gentry did hundreds of years ago.
