It’s a long way from anything else, but once you visit Perth you’ll be glad you made the trip. Set on the picturesque Swan River, Western Australia’s capital is a city of contradictions, where city skyscrapers lie alongside 19th century architecture, stunning gardens and picturesque beaches. Perth is thought to be the world’s most isolated capital city, and is surrounded by thousands of miles of desert.
Located on Australia’s southwest coast, Perth lies 2,706km (1680 miles) west of the closest capital city, Adelaide.
Perth’s weather is mild, characterized by long, hot summers with little rainfall. It’s common for temperatures to hover around 30°C (86°F) in the early months of the year. However, cool sea winds, known as the “Fremantle Doctor” to locals, help keep the heat down in the city. Winter typically brings rain and cooler weather, with temperatures generally around 18°C (64°F).
