Perth, capital of Western Australia is a vibrant, fast growing city with a modern outlook, yet at the same time it is home to some of Australia's most beautifully preserved historic buildings. With a near-perfect climate, glorious beaches and the languid Swan River, Perth is blessed with an abundance of natural resources that make it an ideal tourtist destintation.
Inland national parks provide vistitors with the opportunity to encounter Australia's indigenous wildlife in its natural habitat, while along the coast to the south, the historic port of Fremantle offers an escape from the big city bustle of its neighbour. Offshore, Rottnest is a tranquil getaway that attracts both the international visitor and the Perth resident.
