Perth’s top tourist attractions include Kings Park (an oasis of peace near the heart of the city that harbors a variety of native plants and birds), Perth Zoo (features some of the country's unique wildlife, including tourist favorites like kangaroos, koalas, wallabies, and wombats), the Aquarium of Western Australia (has more than 200 species of marine creatures that can be seen through an underwater glass tunnel), the Aviation Heritage Museum, the Art Gallery of Western Australia, and the Western Australian Maritime Museum. For an idyllic island escape, visitors to Perth can jump on a ferry from Perth or Fremantle and head over to the beautiful island of Rottnest, a car-free nature reserve, which has excellent opportunities for swimming, fishing, snorkeling, and scuba diving. Rottnest Island has several popular dive sites, including Crystal Palace, which is a complex of big, high-domed caverns.
