Perth is the main city in Western Australia and is Australia’s only capital city where you can enjoy the beach lifestyle, relax in natural bushland, sample world-class local wines and watch an ocean sunset within just 30 minutes of the city.
With a population of almost 2 million, Perth is the fourth largest city in Australia. It’s also the sunniest state capital, averaging 3,000 hours of sunshine per year and boasting a string of 19 beautifully clean and uncrowded beaches, from iconic Cottesloe to the surf hotspot of Scarborough.
With more than 24,000 players state-wide, Cricket is the biggest summer sport in Perth. The iconic W.A.C.A. is home to the Western Warriors as well as the Perth Scorchers. Both teams have enjoyed success in recent seasons with the players such as Mitchell Jonhson, Shaun and Mitchell Marsh, Nathan Coulter-Nile and Adam Voges in their teams.
Situated beside the beautiful Swan River, Perth is a living picture postcard. Kings Park, one of the biggest inner-city parks in the world and larger than New York’s Central Park, offer breathtaking views of the city. Perth’s skyline is small, yet memorable at night, when the glittering lights are reflected on the Swan river.
