Perth is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. It has a country feel with all the benefits of being a large city. It has amazing beaches and is a gateway for all that Western Australia has to offer. It has a great nightlife for those that like to party or for anyone wanting to see the real Australia it has some breathtaking scenery and wildlife. For those after a more leisurely experience of coffee, shopping and R & R then Subiaco is a great little suburb for just that with the feel of an arty, hippie town but right in the middle of the city. One thing can be said for Perth and that is that it is unlike any other city in Australia.
