Perth, Western Australia

Perth is the capital city of Western Australia, the biggest state – it covers a third of the island continent. Perth sits between the 1,000 acre King’s Park and the Swan River that flows from the wine region a short drive to the east, to the Indian Ocean beaches a few suburbs to the west.  A clean and modern city alive with commerce and the arts, our two million residents have access to excellent roads and public transport, public and private schools, and five major universities. Known for our relaxed friendliness and laidback lifestyle, Perth is consistently ranked one of the world’s most liveable cities.

The city of Perth is both a bustling business district and a highly liveable urban environment, with modern apartment blocks and easily accessible lifestyle facilities: a river and vast parkland, cycle paths and sports stadiums, theatres and restaurants...

Perth’s beaches run endlessly north and south of the pretty port of Fremantle, a few minutes drive from the city. Though understandably very popular with swimmers, sunbathers, surfers and fishers, our beaches are never really crowded – there’s always another one just up the coast.

Perth has a wonderful Mediterranean climate, with hot, dry summers and cool winters. We enjoy plenty of sunshine - even in winter – so we spend a lot of time outside making the most of it.

Our climate has also given us great wine regions, like the Swan Valley just east of the city and the famous Margaret River, about three hours south. No surprise then that wining and dining is another of Perth’s favourite pursuits.

Serving as an education hub for the nearby Southeast Asian region, Perth offers many fine universities, private and public schools. The high standards of these institutions have seen education developing into one of our major areas of commerce.
