Perth Western Australia
Perth City Skyline
Often regarded as the visitor’s favorite, Perth is perhaps most famous for being so incredibly isolated. The Indian Ocean all the way to Africa on one side and the great Australian deserts to the other, the capital of WA is a metropolitan oasis; filled with life, people, energy and beauty.
Summer temperatures often soar into the low 30s and drop to about 8C in the winter. However, outside of these seasonal peaks, Perth offers a welcoming climate throughout the year.
The Mediterranean climate has cultivated a relaxed, outdoors lifestyle. The Swan River meanders through the city, connecting to Perth Water, and creating the perfect playground for all types of boating. The world renowned beaches of Perth edge the city’s western suburbs, providing warm water in which to enjoy all the water sports you can imagine for all 12 months of the year. Above the city itself, the ‘must see’ botanical gardens of King’s Park offer a visual feast of both the park’s contents, and beyond towards the river lined city.
Perth’s metropolitan vibrancy is established in the wealthy finance and mining companies and the skyline of the city now sparkles with glistening skyscrapers. This corporate success has filtered through to the retail sector, providing high fashion shopping in areas such as King Street as well as the old charm of London Court.
Perth is accessible by rail, road, river/sea, and its international airport.
