With near-perpetual sunshine and some of the most amazing sunsets in Australia, a trip to Perth is a no-brainer really. You don't need to go far from the city to experience the beauty of the Western Australian landscape. Within hours you can find yourself on some of the country’s most beautiful beaches, riding massive sand dunes, having an unforgettable marine adventure or unwinding in one of the most well-regarded wine regions in the country.
Travel writer Bill Bryson might have called it "the most remote city on earth", but Perth and its surrounds are far from inaccessible. With departures daily from major Australian cities and the Indian Pacific rail service to take you from the other side of the country to this very spot, getting here is a cinch.
Despite being remote, the city itself is definitely not quaint. Boasting a population of over 2 million people, it’s considered to be one of the fastest growing cities in Australia. The CBD is a mix of business and heritage buildings filled with a roaring nightlife and lauded restaurants, while its suburbs offer a relaxing respite of inviting beaches and sun-soaked parks.
