It's young, vibrant, clean and has a very eclectic mix of nationalities. It started out strongly British but these days has an unmistakeable leaning towards Asia with some ex-pat South Africans and Zimbabweans thrown in. It is the most user friendly capital city in Australia, aided somewhat by a wonderful climate.
The newness of the place is always apparent, albeit with an historical building here and there. Its big money comes from minerals in the shape of diamonds, iron ore and gold but tourism is playing an ever-increasing part.
