TRIP DESCRIPTION

Perth's superb position on the banks of the Swan River and nearby hectares of natural bushland in Kings Park make for a city centred on the great outdoors. But there's more to the west coast capital than great sunshine and a sparkling river. A new cosmopolitan perspective and economic growth has given Perth a cultural confidence which is making its mark on the city skyline and on other aspects of urban life.
