Perth is a modern, compact city set on the banks of the Swan River. Home to beautiful national parks, gorgeous waterways, boutique hotels and award-winning restaurants; it’s also ‘the most isolated city in the world’.
Proving that inner city life doesn’t have to be devoid of nature, Kings Park is a picturesque national park covering over 400ha adjacent to the Perth CBD, overlooking the Swan River. For locals and visitors alike, Kings Park and Botanic Garden is a place of inspiration and relaxation.
For shopaholics, a visit to the Murray and Hay Street Malls is well worth it. Both are closed to traffic and offer a wide range of big name and specialty stores. If you need to get around quickly, Perth has a free bus service called the Perth CATS (central area transport service).
