The citizens of the city of Perth live the life that most people can only find when on holiday. Perth is the capital of Western Australia and has all the essential ingredients that create an oasis of beauty and fun. It has some of the country's best inner city parks, outdoor dining and adventures, plenty of nightlife, the best beaches and some of the most memorable marine experiences in the world. No wonder it was voted one of the world's most liveable cities.
The entire Perth region was home to the indigenous Nyoongar people for at least the past 40,000 years. The city of Perth, sitting along the widest part of the Swan River, was settled in 1829 by Captain James Stirling, and a free-settler colony. By 1850 a penal colony of convicts swelled the city population and their labour was used to construct many of the buildings still standing in Perth. The gold rush of 1890 triggered an overnight invasion of gold seekers and camp followers. Today, Perth is still the seat of government for Western Australia and is one of the few cities to contain another entire city in its midst. The harbour enclave of Fremantle is a separate city and serves as the port for Perth.
All scheduled international and domestic flights to Perth arrive and depart from Perth Airport. Many of the major airlines operating from the airport have frequent flights to Perth. Major airlines include Qantas, AirAsia, and Singapore Airlines with many of the connections flying through Asian cities. There are a number of low-cost carriers also offering cheap flights to Perth. Virgin Blue, Jetstar and Tiger Air all offer budget friendly flights to Perth.
Spring (September through November) and autumn (March through May) are probably the best times to visit. The summer months are hot and dry and the winter months are when the most rainfall occurs with severe thunderstorms and sometimes a stray cyclone tail will pass through.
The attractions of Perth are almost endless with outdoor activities that include all modes of surfing, fishing and boating. Hiking trails, bicycle paths and garden walkways beckon all to their respective high points.
Perth's most noted attraction and a must-see is King's Park. It provides a truly one off experience with native birds, tranquil parks, natural bushland, and a breathtaking panoramic view of the city. It is the largest city park in the world and has barbeque pits, picnic areas and playgrounds interspersed amongst cycling, jogging and skating paths. Memorials commemorating Australia's prominent pioneers dot the park. Take a walk on the Lotterywest Federation Walkway that spans across the treetops of the city in a glass and steel arched bridge.
Another awe-inspiring sight is the Bell Tower that houses the Swan Bells. Galleries allow visitors an up-close and personal look at the bell ringers in action. There is a display of precision timepieces, optical instruments and bells for people to enjoy.
The Perth Mint offers a traditional gold pouring ceremony and houses the largest gold nugget collection in the world. The Mint offers extraordinary items for sale including precious metal coins, exquisite jewellery, natural nuggets and souvenirs.
There are also opportunities to see and experience the Freemantle Prison, Scitech Science Centre, the Kalamunda History Village, the Western Australian Museum and MacNuts, a working macadamia nut packing facility.
There are double decker bus tours, coach tours and a tour that transverses time and relives the traditions and spirituality of the Aboriginal people. After all that, one can head down to the Freemantle port for whale and dolphin safaris, water parks, and indoor wave pools.
The best known complex in Perth for entertainment is the Burswood Entertainment Complex with a convention centre, 18-hole golf course, retail outlets, and award winning restaurants, an indoor stadium and a 24-hour casino.
The city of Perth in Western Australia is full of activities and attractions for the tourist. But don't expect the fun to stop once the sun sets. Perth has more eating establishments and restaurants than any other city in Australia. Nightclubs can be found scattered through the suburbs with a high concentration of them in Northbridge, an area that winds around the city in a four-block radius. It is busiest from Thursday to Sunday but it is a great place to experience Perth at night.
Perth has a unique tradition of hosting Sunday Sessions, which is a chance to enjoy live music and drinks. Most of these sessions can be found in the area beer parks.
Perth is a sparkling adventure for anyone, the "City of Lights" never loses its lustre and an enchanted traveller will want to return again and again.
