Perth is one of the top destinations for adventure sports in Australia. Entertainment is what Perth does best, and if you consider that the City of Perth provides free entertainment for its 1.6 million metropolitan residents, you will realise why over 100,000 people visit here everyday.
Go Jet Boating – Jet boat rides travel at nearly 75km per hour and is a great way to let off some steam. Add some wild, fast pumping music and you have the perfect combination for a thrilling experience. As you push the throttle, your jet boat will release 25 tons of water per minute, which lifts the boat into the air.
Go Sailing – Go on a sailing tour and get to see the number of islands off of Perth. The Carnac Island, home of the Australian Sea Lion is one of the amazing islands that you will get a closer look at. Take a break from sailing and get in some snorkelling, swimming, or just relax. Sailing is a very romantic way to experience Perth with the one you love.
Go Tandem Skydiving – If you want the thrill of skydiving the safe way, then you need to do it while attached to a Tandem Jump Master. A bit of basic training and the correct kit is all you need to take your first leap. After twenty minutes in the air, you reach an altitude of 14,000ft, which is when you jump into nothingness. You fall at 200 kilometres per hour, but it is a fully monitored 7,500ft freefall.
Go On Aerobatic Flights – Loop the loop, Nose dive, barrel through the skies and fly upside down in a custom built Aerobatic plane in Perth. The aerobatics instructor will be sitting next to you, so there is no reason to panic. You will experience medium ‘G’ forces, and you can ask your instructor to put you through more Gs if you have the stomach for it.
Go Rally Driving – If land sports excite you, and then try rally driving. It really is as thrilling as it is looks like it is on TV. You get to drive a real rally car, manage the controls and explore the dirt roads on your very own rally-driving track. Get a professional to hop in and show you what the turbocharged WRX or Evo can do.
Go Abseiling – Professionals will demonstrate the different abseiling techniques and provide you with the basic ground training. You will be monitored and directed by instructors as you move on vertical, over-hanging and rock faces higher up. You can even give forward-facing abseiling a try if you are up to it.
Go Water Rafting – The Avon River is where some of the best rafters and kayakers take each other on, especially in the Avon Descent. Whether you raft from Bells Rapid to Sandleford Winery or Walyunga National Park to Bells Rapid, you will have mind-blowing views of the surrounding landscapes.
Learn to fly – If you like the idea of flying all by yourself over Perth, you can! You will need to have an experienced instructor with you, but after a brief ground session, you will actually be able to fly the plane by yourself. You will even get a certificate for piloting the aircraft, which you can take home to show friends and family.
Explore Mitchell Falls – This amazing waterfall is created by the Mitchell River, which carves a path through the Mitchell Plateau and finally cascades over layers of rock into a deep pool. Fan palms surround the falls and this sight alone is gratitude enough after the two days of driving and 15 hours of trekking from Kununurra.
Go Hot Air Ballooning – take a hot air balloon trip if you want to experience the beauty of this place from the skies. The rolling hills, the Avon River, the countryside, and manmade glories are waiting for you when you reach the ground. Your adventure begins at dawn and lasts for about an hour, an hour of bliss among the clouds.
Swim with Wild Dolphins – Swim with wild dolphins off the coast of Rockingham, which is only 45 minutes south of Perth. The dolphins are completely wild, and this is an experience that you will never get again. Experienced operators from Rockingham Wild Encounters have been operating for 25 years and they will be keeping an eye on you while you swim with these amazing creatures.
Go Kite Boarding– Whether you kite board from Brighton Beach, Leighton Beach, or Mullaloo Beach; Perth’s sea breezes will give you the best kite boarding conditions around. There are a number of kite boarding schools in Perth, which is great news if you are a beginner and want to get some training before hitting the waves.
