Landscape Locations

Perth has no shortage of beautiful places for landscape photography. Generally speaking the best time for landscape images is at either sunset or sunrise. Some of my favourite locations include:

Kings Park

Its elevated location overlooking Perth and the Swan River has made it one of the most popular locations for photographers. It is a massive park with a large variety of plants. It is especially popular during the Spring flower festival.

Lake Monger

Lake Monger is a big area with lots of great photographic opportunities including classic landscapes of Perth’s iconic black swans with the city in the background.

John Oldham Park

Located between Kings Park and the city. Although it is a very central location it is surprisingly less well known than other parks in the area. The Park has a beautiful waterfall and a large variety of birds and even turtles.

Cottesloe Beach

Probably the most famous beach in Perth, Cottesloe is a great location at sunset for iconic images of the groin and Indiana Tea rooms

Scarborough Beach

Another popular beach with surfers and tourists. Scarborough has lots of great photographic opportunities. Current construction projects in the area may limit access to some locations.
