    Perth is the most isolated city in the world, but there's nothing parochial about its restaurant scene. Here you'll find award-winning restaurants, hip bars and casual cafés worth the flight from the east coast.

    Perth CBD is home to quite a few of the city’s best dining experiences and watering holes, a must-visit if you're looking for taste bud-satisfying things to do in Perth. Check out the State Buildings, Brookfield Place and Yagan Square, followed by a stroll over to the nightlife of Northbridge, where small bars jostle for space. Explore Mount Hawthorn, Leederville, Subiaco, Fremantle and Victoria Park for further foodie finds. Tired after all that eating? Rest your head at one of the best hotels in town.
