About Perth

Perth is located in the Southwest of Australia and is commonly referred to as the “friendly city.” Perth is the capital city of Western Australia, and is the only big city in the whole State. Built on the banks of the Swan River over 150 years ago, the city is a melting pot of many races and creeds, and likes to think of its self as a little more independent than the rest of Australia. It is a city filled with a range of museums, theatres and art galleries which demonstrates its rich culture and strong economy. With its clear skies and sunny climate, (it has over 300 days of sunshine each year!) Perth can be thought of as a tourist delight with a relaxing, easy going atmosphere. Some of its more famous attractions include Kings Park, Fremantle, Scarborough Beach and the Swan River. However, these are just a few of the many sights that Perth has to offer the visitor and local alike. As the gateway to the rest of Western Australia, whether it be the exciting South West Region or the enchanting and mysterious North West Region, Perth is becoming an increasingly popular destination.
