DESTINATION GUIDE

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF COUNTRY

Novotel Perth Langley acknowledges the Whadjuk Nyoongar people as the Traditional Owners of the lands and waters where Perth city is situated today, and pay our respect to Elders past and present.

Welcome to Perth, 

Perth is the sunniest capital city in the world, averaging eight hours of sun per day (that’s a lot of Vitamin D). It’s no wonder that we’re a happy city: we’re early risers; we love the beach and getting out and about. In Perth, don’t be surprised if you see folks taking their canine friends for a run throughout the early hours of the morning, making the most of the beautiful warm weather. Not to mention the sports culture: the WACA for all things cricket, plus our west coast team, the Eagles, have won 4 premierships, and to top it all off, we have the Matagarup Bridge now connecting East Perth to the incredible sports hub of our city, Optus Stadium. 

Winding its way through the City of Perth is the Swan River. Unmistakable in its beauty, the river creates a stunning contrast to the City’s skyline. Dual-use paths mean you can walk, ride or skate a circuit around the river or take a tour on a Segway. There’s also gorgeous grassed areas to enjoy a sunset picnic and watch the world go by. For water sports enthusiasts, sailing, windsurfing and kayaking are popular as is boating, especially to watch the City’s Australia Day Skyworks. The 2.5 hour 'bridges' walk around the river (crossing at Narrows Bridge and the Causeway) is also a big favourite with locals and visitors alike.

Our stunning beaches span along an enormous coastline, and with soft, sugar-white sand and crystal clear waters, it’s pretty easy to see why people from all over the world to come and see them. We mustn’t forget the gorgeous Kings Park, overlooking the city, with an abundance of native flora and fauna, and the beautiful hiking trails all around. If that’s not enough, Perth will 100% win you over if you go and see the kaleidoscope of pinks, purples and oranges created by the fairy floss sunsets which we’re lucky to see every single evening in Perth. 

Here’s a list of some of our favourite things to see and do right near our hotel here in Perth. Please feel free to ask us for more information, should you need it!
