Perth City Guide

View Guides




Perth is an awesome place to live and a stunning travel destination, but if you are looking for tourist icons, shopping malls and big crowds, then you are on the wrong side of the country. Blessed as the world’s most isolated capital city, we share our stunning beaches and national parks, King’s Park and Rottnest Island, small bars, fresh fish and locally grown food, awesome festivals and rocking live music scene with relatively few locals, let alone tourists. This is a place to chill, suck in the clean air and enjoy the serenity.
