If you’re looking for a Perth souvenir that won’t cost a dime or take up room in your suitcase, you might consider an awesome tan. With so many beaches, parks and outdoor activities to choose from, you’ll be hard pressed to go home without getting some color. To experience Perth culture at it’s finest, spend one of your days lounging on the beach with a good book, or learning how to surf. Remember that the sun is especially powerful in Australia, so be sure to wear sunscreen even on cloudy days.
If you are looking for something more tangible, consider purchasing a piece of Aboriginal artwork. There are a number of galleries in and around Perth, including in Kings Park, Rokeby Road in Subiaco, and High Street Fremantle. Check out a few different galleries, and make sure to purchase certified art from galleries so the actual artists benefit from your purchase.
