    Weather in Perth in August can still be a bit cool, around 20C (~70F), but still pleasant for travelling. Most of the winter storms will be over, and rain showers pass very quickly anyway. The winds can kick up, but you would be fine with jeans and a windbreaker or sweater. The winter is nowhere near as severe as US winters, definitely no snow or ice storms ever! As for itinerary, what do you like? do you have a family with you? Some things of interest; Kings Park, just outside the centre of the city, beautiful views. Fremantle - vibrant city 30mins south of Perth, many fantastic places to eat, shop and watch the world go by. The cities beaches - Perth is right on the coast of the Indian Ocean and is blessed with beautiful beaches, go to Scarbourough or Cottesloe for the Sunday Session especially, have a beer in one of the pubs and watch the sun set into the ocean. Can rollerblade, bike ride all day along the trails. Rottnest Island, (if the weather is favourable), just off the coast. Noted for quokkas (small marsurpial that is only found here) Of course, one of our biggest attractions are our wineries. Try a boat luncheon or dinner cruise on the swan river. My favourite as a destination is Sandalford, but there are many. The commentaries from the hosts are half the fun. Day Trips: Margaret River! The Margaret River Chocolate Company is known throughtout the country, and as for the wineries - amongst the world's best. Stunning scenery all around the Southwest - Bunbury, Augusta, Denmark and Albany are all beautiful. Noted for Jarrah forests. Could easily take up 4(or more)days. To the east/north- the wildflower season may have started if it has been warm, the tourist centers can fill you in on that. Other destinations will probably be too far to drive, depending on your committments in Perth. WA is a very large state, but very easy to drive around, once you remember that we drive on the left! Let us know if we can help further.
