Sun and isolation, most people’s requisites when planning a relaxing vacation; and Perth in Western Australia offers the best of both. Boasting 300 days of sunshine a year Perth is often referred to as the sunniest city in Australia. While its location, 1,307 miles away from any major city and close to Bali, Indonesia, has earned it the title “the most isolated city on earth”.
Although skyscrapers dominate the skyline of this modern Australian city, the laid-back atmosphere is evident the minute you hop off your flight to Perth. There’s a young vibrancy that fills the air and everyone seems to be partaking in an active endeavour whether it’s the couple riding bicycles or the family walking to the beach with their surfboards. But if your holiday has to include some cultural pursuits, don’t worry there is plenty to keep you stimulated. The Art Gallery of Western Australia houses some of the best representations of Aboriginal art in the country, while the city’s biggest attraction, the Perth Mint, was built in the 1890s to refine gold mined in Western Australia. Visitors can watch a live Gold Pour whereby pure gold is heated and moulded into a solid gold bar.
