"Perth - Western Australia" Perth by CharleneP
Perth Travel Guide: 2,295 reviews and 4,829 photos
Perth is different than the rest of Australia with its combination of Californian and a Mediterranean climate. The summers are hot and dry were the winters are mild and wet. Places closer to the sea side, remind me of Mozambique. (Just with no waves) ;o)
Western Australia covers an area of 2,525,500 Sq kms and is one of the largest states in the world, but the population is only 1.8 million people that are half of the population of Sydney, and due to its size, you need to travel far to get to places.
Kings Park is the largest inner city park in the world and BEAUTIFULL with an awesome view over the city and Swan River.
The Australian currency is the Australian Dollar - more and less equal with the US dollar.
Cash transactions are usually rounded to the nearest 5 cents.
Visa and Master Card are accepted in Perth/Australia.
