Western Australia is the countrys largest state being a third of the whole countrys land mass but it only has a population of 2 million. Perth has a population of just over 1.8 million people. It sits on the River Swan with the port of Fremantle just along the water. It is Australias sunniest capital.
Back in 2001, For me, Western Australia was my favourite part of Australia. Perth was my favourite metropolis and the drive from Perth to Darwin was an experience i will never forget. Perth is a compact laid back city with a great climate. South West of Perth are great beaches(Dunsborough, one of my favourite) and surfing. Up the coast, there are more great beaches, the ningaloo reef,Cape Range national Park, hotter climates, empty roads and plenty of outback! Further up, is the beautiful wilderness of the Kimberle

I revisited Perth 12 years later in 2013 and found the place had changed so much!
The population had swelled from 1m in 2001 to 1.8m.
New buildings roads and bars/restaurants had popped up all over.
Perth was booming!
I didnt enjoy it as much as i did when i was just 23, but back then i was just drinking and enjoying the backpacking life. In 2013 i was there scoping out a city to make my new home and start a family!
I left after a 2 week holiday with a sense that it was still a fantastic city, whilst rather boring, still a fabulous place to bring up a family.
Theres no real big sights to see but its all about the beach and the lifestyle, which is why its hard to find something to do when it rains! but i had a fab time again and will soon be calling Perth home!
