Perth, capital of Western Australia, sits where the Swan River meets the southwest coast, is our most isolated city and is home to approx 2 million.
Its suburbs lie along sandy beaches from where spectacular sunsets can be seen, particularly from the infamous Cottesloe Beach.
Kings Park and Botanic Garden on Mt. Eliza offer sweeping views of the city.
The Perth Cultural Centre houses the state ballet and opera companies, and occupies its own central precinct, including a theatre, art galleries and the Western Australian Museum.
