Perth City is a melting pot of cultural and inner-city experiences. It boasts a perfect blend of historic and modern architecture, a reflection of its proud colonial history and an exciting future on the global stage. Public art and lush green parks provide a treat for the senses while the small bars, lively laneways and street cafes add a sense of urban cool. Perth City is the financial and business hub, the retail heartbeat and the entertainment centre of the capital city. With distinct neighbourhoods offering something unique within each, Perth is a place for city explorers with treasure to uncover around each corner.
In the centre of the city you will find the pedestrian friendly Hay and Murray Street Malls, where city workers and retail therapists gather to snap up the latest high street bargains.
With its slower pace and picturesque inlet, visitors can enjoy coffee or a long lunch at one of the various restaurants and cafés that surround the scenic waterways.
Just north of the Perth railway station, Northbridge is an urban cultural hub with a strong arts and creative scene.
Perth’s own Rodeo Drive, King Street, resides at this end of town. With exclusive stores such as Chanel, Prada, Bally and Tiffany’s, it is a magnet for those who appreciate the finer things in life.
