What to do in Perth
Perth is the capital city of Western Australia. It is the largest city in the state and it is the fourth most popular city in Australia,
with a population in 2017 of almost 2,022,044.
Perth is growing and gaining more popularity because of its pleasantly open and nature-rich surroundings and has the best weather of all the Australian capital cities.
It is bordered on one side by the Indian Ocean, the scenic waters of the Swan River and an abundance of green natural forests and bushlands on the other.
The lively city was founded by Captain James Stirling, in the year 1829, as the administrative centre of the Swan River Colony. Due to the influence of George Murray, a Member of Parliament for Perthshire and the Secretary of State for War and the Colonies, the city had been named as Perth.
The city is considered different due to its unique character when compared to some of its eastern cities. Perth was declared as the seventh liveable city by the Economist Intelligence Unit in August 2016.
