Activities for visitors to Perth
Tourism Western Australia has a useful website, which lists many options:
You are strongly encouraged to book your hotel early because Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) will be held in Perth in the week following EAC 2011.
Some hotels may request passport identification due to security arrangements for CHOGM delegates.
Several hotels are offering discounts for EAC2011 delegates. It is recommended you telephone in office hours WST to book directly with the hotel, and mention the conference. The discounted tariffs will not be available online. There is a limited number of rooms available at the discounted rates.
