Mile End Glamping
Near Margaret River, 150 miles south of Perth, this pair of geodesic domes overlooking the bush is a futuristic couples’ retreat. The studio domes each have a kitchen, bathroom and hot tub on the adjacent patio. From £167, minimum two-night stay.
Olio Bello Lakeside Glamping
On an organic olive farm near the Margaret River, these six safari-style tents are a cut above — the luxury tent fittings (kitchenettes, viewing decks, ‘windows’ either side of the huge beds) make them perfect for a couple’s retreat. From £130.
North Heritage Bungalows
On car-free Rottnest Island, a 25-minute ferry ride from the Perth coast, these 1920s canvas-sided bungalows are what the island’s first tourists stayed in. For something a little fancier, there are cedar-built cabins and a range of modern bungalows. From £80.
Fremantle Prison YHA
A UNESCO-listed 19th-century jail in Fremantle, just half an hour from Perth, has been converted into a chic hostel. As well as dorms there are six-bed cottages, which were once guard accommodation. Doubles from £68.
