Day Trips for 2018 Christmas Holiday:

If you can’t spare more than an afternoon, but still want to escape the hustle and bustle of the city there are a number of great spots within an hours drive of Perth.

Bell’s Rapids

Just outside the Swan Valley this place speaks of an outback dream. If you’re desperate for some time out its easy to find a secluded spot along the river for a picnic, there are loads of great swimming spots and a couple of good walking trails to entertain you.

Serpentine Falls

Another great spot for picnicking and bushwalking just 55km southeast of Perth. The park is decked out with gas barbecues and tables.
It is recommended to arrive early because the rangers will close the gates once the park reaches maximum capacity.

Longer stays for 2018 Christmas Holidays:

If you’re not picky about the exact location then there are a number of resources online that can help you find last minute accommodation in various regions across the state. Try Wotif, WA Holiday Guide, and lastminute.com.

If you can find a base camp in the region it is pretty easy to explore a number of attractions from there. The region’s gems include Margaret River, Greens Pool, Denmark, Albany, Busselton, and the Valley of the Giants.

North West:

The North West is much more spread out than the south so don’t expect an action-packed escape with loads of sights. Try Broome & Cable Beach, Karijini National Park, Kununurra, or the Horizontal Waterfalls.

The Coral Coast:

The drive up the West Coast affords views of some of the most beautiful and secluded beaches in the world. Don’t expect to pack a lot in because the strip is vast, but visiting one or two of these destinations is more than enough for a great holiday experience. The most popular spots include Coral Bay, Exmouth, Kalbarri National Park, Ningaloo Marine Park, and the Pinnacles.
