There’s a reason why job seekers and adventurers are flocking to the capital of Western Australia in record numbers, and it’s not just for the resurgence of the local job market.
A distinctively laidback and relaxed lifestyle sets Perth apart from hustle and bustle centres like Sydney and Melbourne, and helps the city to regularly be ranked as one of the top 10 most livable places in the world.
Australia’s Sunshine Capital
Perth has recently taken the title of the sunniest state capital in Australia, averaging almost nine hours of sunshine per day, while experiencing an average of 265 sunny days per year.
The city’s coastline is made up of 19 beautiful white-sand beaches, with spots like Scarborough and Cottesloe attracting surfies and families from across Australia and the world, while locations like City Beach, Mullaloo Beach, Mandurah and Rockingham are staples for the local community.
Visiting any of these beaches means that you’re likely to find picnicking, BBQs, snorkeling, beach volleyball, kitesurfing, windsurfing, lots of Frisbees and rugby balls being tossed about, as well as a whole lot of friendly people.
Safe, Sound and Connected
With a population just over two million, Perth is much less crowded than Australia’s other state capitals like Sydney and Melbourne. Because of this, residents experience some great lifestyle benefits, like:
- Low levels of crime
- Low levels of homelessness
- Very little traffic and congestion
- Low pollution and exceptionally clean air
Expats living in Perth often find that integrating into local communities is a piece of cake. Sporting events, summer BBQs and drinks, as well as the wide range of outdoor activities and scenery around the city make meeting new people easy.
Eat, Drink and Be Merry
Perth is the proud home of over 215 wineries, with iconic locations like Margaret River and Swan River boasting award winning Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, and SÃ©million.
To match the city’s world-class wine culture, Perth’s food scene is equally high quality. The city has a growing roster of globally recognised chefs and restaurants, specialising in homegrown produce and fresh seasonal flavours. Looking for a bit of nightlife? The town of Northbridge is renowned for it’s vibrant clubbing and bar culture. Are you more interested in finding the best cup of coffee in town?
