The location

Perth is the state capital of Western Australia.  There are around 1.6 million people living in the city.  Perth is 5 hours closer to the UK that the East coast and is a top choice for UK expats.

Perth is the only capital city with a wine region, conservation areas and 19 beautiful beaches all close enough to be enjoyed in a day, along with plenty of nightlife, shopping, outdoor dining and amazing marine adventures. 

There are more than 30 travel routes connecting Perth and Perth airport with the rest of Australia and the world, making the nation’s sunniest capital and most diverse state surprisingly accessible.

Perth has an excellent quality of life and is known for being a great place to bring up children.  There are beautiful beaches both north and south of the city with great spots for swimming and surfing. There is a good social scene, plenty of alfresco restaurants and cafes.

The climate in Perth is probably one of the best in Australia with more sunshine hours, warm summers with cooler winters – although a winter’s day can often be 18 – 24 degrees.
