Perth, Australia Travel Guide

Last Updated: Dec 2021

Partially famous for being the remotest big city in the world, Perth is not the sort of place that you end up in by accident. A mining boom not far away has helped transform this into a big and rich city that rivals Sydney and Melbourne in some ways, but Perth is also somewhat famous for being expensive.
