Perth, Western Australia, Australia


Perth is the bustling, exciting capital of Western Australia. Currently in the process of a major redevelopment with Elizabeth Quay, the city basks in the stunning surrounds of the Swan River. Young, hip and evolving at a rapid pace, Perth is firmly establishing itself as a world-class city centre.

Life in PERTH

With major developments underway in Perth to elevate the city’s cultural panache, such as the recently established Perth Arena - a world-class 15,000 capacity entertainment facility - Perth is experiencing a cultural awakening. Laneway bars and rooftop venues are in abundance, as well as a broad range of restaurants to satisfy any palate, including the wildly popular Jamie’s Italian on William Street. Transport in and out of the city is convenient with the Perth Train Station, while Carillion City, Forrest Chase and the Hay Street and Murray Street malls (to name a few) will appeal to retail addicts.
