Perth is a sophisticated city oozing with class and refinement. The capital of Western Australia is ideally located where the Swan River flows majestically into the ocean. The beaches are long and sandy, with a chilled out and laid back vibe. You can cycle, rollerblade, and saunter alongside incredible views that will leave you in awe.
The state ballet and opera companies are based in the cultural centre and would couple perfectly following a gourmet meal in this foodie paradise. The Western Australia Museum is located here, along with copious art galleries and museums.
If you are an outdoor lover, you won’t be disappointed by the encapsulating views offered from the Botanic Gardens on Mt Eliza. The cityscape is framed by sweeping beaches, modern architecture, and an ocean that gleams.
While Perth radiates charm and sophistication, it doesn't take away from the down to earth lifestyle the Australians love to live. The nightlife is always on whether you want a quiet beer in a local pub, a night of dancing and cocktails, or a chance to dress up and watch a world class opera.
