Perth is an easy-going city rivaling the east coast for quality of life. The sophisticated food and wine, vibrant nightlife, wealth of cultural events and more days of sunshine than any other capital city in Australia, it’s a hidden jewel to most travelers. Perth, with a population of well over 1 million and a climate similar to the Mediterranean, offers access to key locations in the Pacific Rim and areas along the Indian Ocean. Inland from Perth are the vineyards of the scenic Swan Valley.
The adjacent city of Fremantle, known for hosting the America's Cup, offers beach enthusiasts a chance to look at the prestine beaches of Australia's West Coast.
Home to the Ningaloo Reef, one of the most pristine coral reefs in the world, Western Australia is an ideal destination for anyone looking to experience all Australia has to offer.
