Perth travel guide

The largest state and capital of Western Australia, Perth is the only city that lays beside the Indian Ocean and is the perfect starting point for your Australian adventure. Being one of the hottest city’s in Australia with over 3,000 hours of average sunshine a year and with their summers lasting through December till early April its an ideal place to visit during our winters. Its vast expanse is heightened by the fact that it is one of most isolated cities in the world, second only to Honolulu, Perth really is a hidden treasure.

Geography of Perth

The capital city of Western Australia, Perth is one of the most isolated cities in the world with flat coastal plains and is placed along the Swan River. This city is circumscribed by the Darling Scarp to the east and the Indian Ocean coastline to west.

The Perth Metropolitan Area is divided into Fremantle, Northbridge, The coast, The hills, northern and southern suburbs. Most of the inhabitants reside in suburbs along the coast. This zone is filled with food and entertainment and provides the opportunity to swim or watch the sun fade away into the Indian Ocean. Outside the city lies Outer Perth and Rottnest Island. They are big islands and have small townships where locals like to relax with the Quokka in Rottnest Island

Food and drink in Perth

From dining in a sophisticated restaurant overlooking the river to eating fish and chips whilst watching the sun set on the beach, Perth has everything. In fact Perth vaunts a wide selection of cuisines that will cater for everyone. However the city hasn't embraced late night dining and is pretty scarce after 10pm. Fremantle is great for vegans with many meat-free restaurants to choose from.

If shopping and entertainment takes your fancy then a short distance away is Murray street and Hay street which is littered with chic boutiques, trendy bars and cafes. For the more high-end fashionista’s the “Designer District” found on King street will definitely keep you busy with a number of your favorite multi-nationals such as Gucci and Prada.
