Gay Perth Perth City Guide

Perth might be one of the most isolated cities on the planet, but don't let its remoteness fool you. Long revered for its endless sunshine and exceptional beaches, Perth is also home to creative restaurants celebrating regional ingredients, character-driven boutique hotels, and globally-inspired yet locally-sourced boutiques. And while it might not get the same acclaim as Melbourne or Sydney (yet), Perth promises all the trappings of a first-rate city getaway—with the highlights of Western Australia's striking scenery and diverse wildlife never far from reach. Snorkel alongside reef sharks, selfie it up with ever-beloved quokkas, cheers to the good life in wine country—and still make it back to downtown Perth for a twinkling rooftop dinner. Gay Perth centres around the trendy, gay-popular neighbourhoods of Maylands and Bayswater (also dubbed Gaylands and Gayswater), but you'll encounter welcoming, inclusive vibes no matter where you go. Now, without further ado, your definitive gay Perth travel guide awaits.

The best hotels in Perth

Perth’s most stylish boutique hotel might very well be the Alex Hotel, where hipster vibes and glamorous design details seamlessly co-mingle to create a funky yet fabulous accommodation experience. Located in the heart of Perth’s cultural centre, there’s a particular emphasis given to chic communal spaces. Don’t miss the cosy Mezzanine Lounge, a swoon-worthy area to sip artisanal spirits while paging through any one of the books on display. A furnished rooftop lounge with killer city views and locally designed rooms round out the experience. Dark and moody in all the right ways, QT Perth is an ultra-luxurious high-rise hotel conveniently tucked away near the popular Swan River. The hotel welcomes all ‘modern explorers, wildflowers and the creatively charged,’ perfectly befitting of the discerning gentleman in search of bespoke, sometimes quirky yet always sophisticated, comfort and decor.
