Home to the most self-made millionaires in any city in the world thanks to the mining industry, Perth, sitting on the west coast of Australia is the only Australian capital city on the coast of the Indian Ocean. The people of Perth are a bright lot considering everyone turned on all their lights when astronaut John Glenn orbited the earth in 1962. Perth was the only city he could identify from his heavenly perch, hence the nickname given of "City of Light".
Perth has a different vibe of understated confidence to that of the East Coast cities. It is famous for postcard perfect beaches, eco-friendly city living where there are expanses of parklands and world class wineries fermenting luscious grapes to make some of the best wines in the New World.
Not brash, more elegant and stylish, Perth's city reclines on the picturesque Swan River. The Cultural Center is home to the state ballet and opera companies, where you will also find the Western Australian Museum, theaters and art galleries. This sunny city has super chic small bars, international class restaurants and a vibrant market scene.
The oldest mint in Australia, The Perth Mint, built in 1899 still functions and is open to the public. If you love the look of gold - let's face it, who doesn't - this is the place to go to. You can see the molten gold being poured into gold bars. Try lifting one - you won't be able to sneak it out in your backpack.
