• See a different side of Australia in Perth

    2010-03-10

    A trip to Australia for most typically involves a beachfront exploration of the Great Barrier Reef, a cultural tour of Sydney or a shopping excursion to Melbourne. Yet travelers looking for the ultimate Aussie experience might enjoy a trip to the opposite coast to visit the Western Australian capital of Perth.

    Perth was founded in 1829 as the political center of the Swan River Colony, and has remained involved in the national government ever since. The city tied for fifth place in the Economist's 2009 list of the most livable cities, and has gained a reputation as one of the most safe and beautiful cities in the region.

    One of the first stops in the city should be Kings Park, a lush green environment with a phenomenal view of Swan River and the city surrounding it. Hikers can spend a day navigating its myriad of nature trails, exploring its gardens and pay homage at the war memorial and Flame of Remembrance.

    A visit to the Perth Cultural Center will open up a number of opportunities, as curious travelers can explore social and natural history at the Western Australian Museum, peruse fine paintings and sculptures in the art gallery or become cultured on experimental art at the Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts.
