Great Day Trip Destinations Close to Cottesloe


Owing to its great central coastal setting, Cottesloe is the perfect holiday accommodation locality for travellers wishing to undertake daytrips to popular tourist hotspots such as Perth City, Fremantle, Swan Valley, or Rottnest Island.


Perth City and Fremantle offer holiday makers the opportunity to visit amazing cultural locations such as the Western Australian Museum, the Maritime Museum, the Western Australian Art Gallery, the Western Australian Symphony Orchestra and the Fremantle Prison. Travellers can also do some serious shopping in Perth with areas such as the Murray and Hay Street Malls delivering a plethora of great boutique and specialty stores. Fremantle, in comparison, gives holiday makers the opportunity to wander through the Fremantle Markets, which is held on the weekend and comprises over 150 different stalls.


Swan Valley in contrast to Perth and Fremantle, allows travellers to leave the hustle and bustle of the urban setting, and immerse themselves in one of Western Australia’s most famous wine areas. The Swan Valley region is located approximately 27km east of Cottesloe and incorporates a multitude of wineries, breweries and distilleries, as well as chocolate and ice-cream factories. Travellers, who visit Swan Valley, may be interested in joining one of the many wine tours that meander their way through the region, or may instead prefer to explore the region unaided. Those who chose to discover the region alone may also like to look into some of the great boutique accommodation on offer, in order to give themselves the time to really appreciate all that Swan Valley has to offer.


Rottnest Island is another extremely well known tourist destination, located approximately 25 from Fremantle and 90 minutes from Perth by Ferry, and is perfect for international visitors, who are interested in surfing, swimming, snorkelling, diving, or just getting up close and personal with the Australian flora and fauna. Due to the popularity of the island, various great holiday deals are available, which includes cheap same day return trips via the Perth and Fremantle ferries every Tuesday.


The Ideal Climate for Visitors


Cottesloe experiences a Mediterranean climate, which results in cool wet winters and hot dry summers. Many holiday makers consequently choose to frequent the region during the summer, in order to take advantage of the great beach weather. Cottesloe is however, a great year round holiday destination, with some specialised holiday activities, such as whale watching, only being available during the winter months. Holiday makers can therefore generally find fantastic holiday deals and activities regardless of when they choose to visit.


Travelling to Cottesloe from the UK


Travelling to Cottesloe from the UK is a relatively simple process, as numerous airlines such as British Airways, Qantas and Malaysia Airlines offer flights to Perth departing from both Heathrow and London City Airports. Once in Perth holiday makers may choose to take a taxi, train or bus, or to rent a car, in order to cover the 12km between themselves and their beautiful Cottesloe beachside holiday home.
