Perth And Surrounds

Known as one of the sunniest cities, Perth has to be up there as one of the best, or if not the best Australian cities to live in.  Of course, this is my biased opinion. However, after living in and around Perth for over 30 years, combined with visiting every other state in Australia, I can honestly say that the Perth region has a lot to offer.

With a fantastic climate all year, Perth and the surrounding areas have a lot to offer.  For those who love the outdoors, you’ll find some of the best beaches in the state, pristine islands and reefs off the coast, stunning waterways, parkland, and hiking trails ready to explore.
