You can look forward to a dinner with king prawns during autumn and a meal of river prawns during summer. There are also delicious blue manna crabs here and if you want to take part in the annual crab festival that features this tasty delicacy, time your vacation in Perth during the month of March.
- Follow the Bibbulmun Track. The 1,000 kilometer trail from Perth’s eastern suburbs to Albany is considered as the one of the greatest long distance walk trails in the world.
