Perth is the capital of Western Australia, situated where the Swan River meets the southwest coast. I went to Perth for a short trip to explore a bit around the city region and nearby suburbs. The flight from Brisbane to Perth took me around 5.5 hours and another interesting fact is that Brisbane is 2 hours ahead of Perth even though both cities are in the same country.
From my impression, Perth has a similar urban design as Brisbane so it gave me a familiar feeling. I feel Perth is more spacious compared to Brisbane as I had to walk quite to get from one place to the other.
Kings Park is a big park located at the western edge of Perth CBD. The park is renowned for its spectacular views due to its prime location on Mt Eliza overlooking Perth City and the Swan River.
There are quite a few historic buildings turned into shopping areas in Perth CBD, so people can do their shopping under the historic ambience.
Fremantle is the place that I would strongly recommend you to pay a visit whilst visiting Perth. I really enjoyed spending my afternoon there and I believe you would love the ambience too! Fremantle is part of the Perth metropolitan area and it is a port city.
Western Australia is well known for its beautiful beaches so I didn’t want to miss the chance to have a coastal walk!
I enjoyed exploring Perth. I believe you will enjoy exploring the beautiful city too! 🙂
