Perth is the capital and the largest city of the state of Western Australia. It has a Mediterranean climate with warm, sunny weather for most of the year. 

Perth’s beaches are relatively uncrowded and are always clean, making them one of the city’s main attractions. Sorrento Beach is one of the best, providing safe swimming for people of all ages. All Perth’s beaches have cafes within walking distance. 

The Swan River is another highlight, and is best enjoyed by taking one of the many cruises that are offered along the river, some including dinner and music within their price.
