About Perth

Metropolitan area

Perth is home to about 1.9 million people. It’s easy to get around the city by bus or train or on foot. The metropolitan area is linked by efficient freeways, highways, railway lines and cycle paths.

Perth is set on the beautiful Swan River looking up to the Kings Park Botanic Gardens. Beaches stretch for miles to the north and south. The port city of Fremantle is 18km south west of the capital.

Perth’s weather is one of our best features. Warm summers and mild winters let you make the most of the great outdoors.

Peel region

Located just south of the Perth metropolitan area on the Peel Inlet, this small region features canals, rivers and the Indian Ocean, as well as a variety of wineries and forest settings.

Mandurah is the major population centre of this region, and is connected to Perth by train.

Other important towns are Pinjarra and Waroona. Sections of the famous Bibbulmun Track walking trail pass through the region.
