Perfect weather, a bustling, vibrant city, and plenty of job opportunities – where else could we be talking about other than Perth, Western Australia? An underdog city with a not-so-underdog size, Perth is fast-growing and ranked as one of the most liveable cities in the world.
If you’re thinking of becoming a Perthite, we could probably give you a hundred reasons to do so. Perthites themselves could give you thousands, being such a proud bunch. But let’s keep it simple, hey? Here’s our top five!
1) Big city, without the fuss
Perth is the most isolated capital city in the world: it’s further away from any other capital city across the globe. And yet, it really doesn’t feel like it when you’re there. You feel like you’re part of a huge, bustling international city – which it is! In fact, it’s Australia’s fourth biggest town at around 2 million people. At the same time, you don’t get the fuss of a huge city – you don’t get the skyrocketing property prices or eternal traffic jams. You just get the perks!
Perth has a fantastic climate. Summers are hot, and spent down by the beach – of which there are many to choose from in Perth. Winters are mild, with the average high being 19 degrees Celsius. So, be prepared to sell many of your jumpers and jackets… you won’t need them very often!
3) Job market
Perth is a fast growing city with plenty of jobs on offer. Known especially for its mining sector, there seems to be an endless demand for workers in the mines, who fetch big bucks and great perks. Other areas include hospitality, retail, education and blue collar areas like construction and trades.
4) Foodie’s heaven
Perth is a diverse city that draws influence from loads of different cultures. It’s characterised by European-style small bars and cafes, local farmers’ markets, and a wide range of cuisines from across the world. Fremantle, in recent years, has become an ultra popular place for foodies and drinks enthusiast, with plenty of bars and restaurants.
Perth is a big city, with a big bustling heart. There’s a roaring live music scene, home to some of Australia’s favourite and most famous bands, from Tame Impala to Birds of Tokyo. The nightlife in Perth is one of the best in the country. There are around 255 events that happen in Perth each year – that’s more than four per week!
