The Plentiful Perks of Perth
What makes Perth so special? It’s not just the miles and miles of sun-drenched beaches. It’s not just the low crime rate, multitudes of family-friendly neighbourhoods, welcoming cosmopolitan mix of nationalities and cultures, shorter work commutes, or the vast West Australian expanse of terrain to explore from Albany all the way up to The Kimberley. It’s the fact that here, more than in any other state, the Australian Dream of home ownership is tantalisingly within reach for the everyday Aussie.
Perth’s ‘Wonderfully Attractive’ Highs and Lows
Wages and quality of life here in Perth is on a high, while the comparative cost of living, including mortgage repayments, remains low. This has helped entice an influx of people keen to set up home here, with WA experiencing strong interstate migration, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics. This is testament to Perth’s affordability and its irresistible appeal – not just to Australians throughout the country, but to people all over the world seeking a better life.
Where the living is easy
It’s the world’s most isolated capital. Situated on the southwestern edge of the Australian continent, Perth, capital of Western Australia, sits between the blue of the Indian Ocean and the desert sands of the Nullarbor. Its nearest state capital neighbour is Adelaide in South Australia which is 2750 kilometres or at least two days away by car. But No worries, mate, as we Aussies say. People from all around the world are interested in investing in Perth properties.
Sunniest Aussie state
However far it may be from the rest of the country, and the rest of the world, Perth has a reputation of being in the sunniest Australian state, with the surf is at its backdoor, and many are envious of its nice-and-easy lifestyle.
Nearly 4000 kilometres by road from Sydney (taking the shortest route), Perth can be reached from the east coast through a leisurely train ride on the famed Indian Pacific, by road or by air.
A day’s sightseeing
Take a walking tour of Perth from the banks of the Swan River to the city’s historic buildings and on to the malls and gardens. A number of Perth’s standing fine buildings were built by convict labour in the second half of the 1800s (and add considerably — despite the harshness surrounding their construction — to the city’s charm) but a West Australian economic boom and the growth of an aggressive entrepreneurial spirit brought wealth and more modern edifices to Perth.
The Perth city centre is relatively small and its attractions can certainly be discovered on a day’s walking tour.
There is the Swan River on the south and the railroad tracks on the north. East extends to the environs of Wellington Square and south west is the rising slope to Kings Park on Mt Eliza which overlooks the city.
