Perth is the capital of Western Australia, located on the state’s southwest coast, and is a charming city that perfectly combines modern sophistication with easy access to the region’s extraordinary natural beauty. There are a number of significant political and cultural landmarks and attractions in the city, including the Government House and Parliament of Western Australia and the Perth Cultural Centre. Perth is also home to the West Australian Ballet, Opera and Symphony Orchestra, all of which are well worth a visit during your stay. Just to the west of the city centre lies Kings Park, a vast mixture of grassed parkland, botanic gardens and natural bushland that is one of the largest inner city parks in the world, which, built on top of Mount Eliza, offers spectacular panoramic views. Venture further from the centre to discover stunning coastline and beaches, particularly around the Fremantle area just south of the city, the perfect place to go sailing and swimming to cool down during the very hot summers. The pedestrianized Hay Street and Murray Street are the best shopping locations in the city and where you will find many high-end international fashion houses. Perth also has a vibrant nightlife, including a wide range of lively bars and exquisite restaurants for you to enjoy. All things considered, this cosmopolitan city is a wonderful destination that has succeeded in entering the modern age without surrendering its natural beauty and authentic, laidback charm.
