"WESTERN AUSTRALIA" Perth by tkdqueen
Perth Travel Guide: 2,295 reviews and 4,829 photos
Offset by the vast tranquil waters of the Swan River, the beautiful city of Perth is a tourist's delight. Modern and vibrant, it contrasts with its historic counterpart - the port city of Fremantle accessible within 20 minutes by car from Perth.
Tourists commonly refer to Perth as the "friendly city", and famous notables have also renamed the city after their personal experiences. Astronaut John Glenn called Perth the "City of Lights" after his historic fly-over in 1962 and victorious America's Cup skipper Dennis Connor referred to it as the "most isolated city in the world".
Most paint Perth as bright, fun, friendly and "laid back" (relaxing) but visitors to the city can be sure to find their own descriptions after their holiday.Whet your appetite with a day on the Swan River, a picnic to the Darling Ranges, a visit to a vineyard or a stroll around Perth or Fremantle. From outdoors to indoors, a fabulous range of city and suburban shops will satisfy even the most particular tourist. Everything from traditional Australian gifts and garments, opals, Kalgoorlie gold and precious diamonds to succulent local seafood, tender red meat and fresh fruit and vegetables.
