About City

 
Perth is the capital and largest city of the Australian state of Western Australia. It is the fourth-most populous city in Australia, with a population of 2,022,044 living in Greater Perth. Perth is part of the South West Land Division of Western Australia, with the majority of the metropolitan area located on the Swan Coastal Plain, a narrow strip between the Indian Ocean and the Darling Scarp. The first areas settled were on the Swan River at Guildford, with the city's central business district and port (Fremantle) both later founded downriver.
Perth is one of the planet's most isolated capital cities, yet this sun-soaked capital of Western Australia defies its remote location by boldly flaunting its riches - and there are many, both natural and material. A gorgeous setting astride the winding Swan River, with a string of pearly beaches nearby, provides the perfect playground for outdoor adventures. Sailing, swimming, fishing, and boating are all popular things to do, and in the center of the city, beautiful Kings Park brims with natural bushland and panoramic views.
 
Like Melbourne, Perth frequently ranks as one of the world's most liveable cities, and despite its sprouting skyscrapers, fueled by a mining boom, the city exudes a refreshingly relaxed vibe. But you'll still find plenty of big-city tourist attractions and activities. You can dine at fine restaurants, shop at stylish boutiques, browse art galleries and museums, or see some of the country's top talent at its lively entertainment venues.Not far from the city, idyllic Rottnest Island is a popular day trip destination, as is Fremantle, at the mouth of the Swan River. This historic port is the namesake of the famous Fremantle Doctor, a cool sea breeze that blasts the summertime heat from this effervescent, affluent, and gregarious city.
 
Perth City is alive with an annual program of music, theatre, dance and visual art. It is particularly rich during the Perth International Arts Festival held every February and March. During this time the city welcomes local and international artists to participate in a riot of shows across the region. Northbridge is home to the Perth Cultural Centre which houses the Western Australian Museum - Perth (currently closed due to major redevelopments), Art Gallery of Western Australia, the Perth Institute of Contemporary Art, the Blue Room Theatre, the State Theatre of Western Australia and The Nostalgia Box - Australia's first interactive video game console museum!
