When to go
Perth is a great destination to visit all year round.
Summer is the season of hot, dry, and balmy weather, when you can pedal along some nice avenues absorbing the lively urban culture. March to May - Autumn - offer elegant red and orange colors covering the town, expect sunny days and cooler nights. Winters are mild and rainy days are more frequent. With warm temperatures, less rainfall, along with gorgeous sights of wild plants, Spring seems to be the most beautiful and preferred time for many people to visit WA and Perth. Nothing is better at this time of year than a loop ride of the River.
