There is much to be discovered and enjoyed in Perth and its surrounds, both by residents and travellers alike.

From the wineries of the Swan Valley to the natural beauty and wildlife of Mandurah and Peel; from the laid back atmosphere of Rottnest Island to the unique flora and bushland of the national parks across the Darling scarp, Perth's attractions are bountiful.

Perth's literary culture is equally impressive. Our writers have captured so many compelling stories of our history, of the environment, and of the Indigenous and diverse communities that contribute to the rich character of this place that readers have much to choose from.

Dive in, explore their works of non-fiction, fiction and poetry, and discover Perth and its surrounds through their writing.
