Images Of Perth

Western Australia's key city is famous for many reasons. It's the state's capital, it's the gateway to Australia's breathtaking west coast, and it's the most remote city in the world. This doesn't mean there's nothing to do though. Perth has one of Australia's most instantly recognisable skylines, a climate other cities can only dream of, a host of beautiful beaches and enough bars, restaurants and cafés to keep all walks of life occupied for the duration of their stay.

    Good but quiet

    Perth was our first destination of a year working visa in Oz. The town offers what you would expect a city to offer, although it is a little on the small and quiet side for my liking. Night life is alright, some cheap places to eat out if you look. Free inner city transport a big plus, plus linked well to the other suburbs around Perth. Bit more expensive than other cities on the East coast, although the average wage tends to be a bit higher.

    Insider Tip:Good place to find work as not only is the average wage above average, but there is a lot of labour work currently and a lot of other backpackers are on the East coast.

    Relaxed place with beautiful surroundings

    Perth is very good for shopping and a very relaxed city! Plus surrounded by so many beautiful landscapes - sanddunes, pinnacles, shell beach.. etc..

    Nice city, not much to do in the city itself though. Wouldn't recommend more than a few days here, go out and see the rest of Western Australia.

    Insider Tip:Take the train into Fremantle for a day. On the weekends there are markets.

    Perth

    If you go for the first time in Australia, or if you make an holiday to see all around Australia, i think you can stay in Perth not more than four days. Perth is a nice town, but not so nice and less fun than others ( Sydney, Adelaide, Melbourne, Brisbane ). It is very nice to go by train around Perth ( I love Cottesloe!! )
