Perth, the capital city of Western Australia, is one of the most beautiful cities to tour in Australia. It is surrounded by riverside parks, historic seaside towns, lovely sandy beaches, and gardens which make it charming. Perth was not a popular travel destination over the past years until recently when Australians and outside visitors discovered the beauty of this city and what it has to offer. Tourism has flourished in this magnificent city despite being located far away from Sydney and offers long term accommodation in Perth.
Here are the reasons why Perth is a nice place to visit:
It has a moderate climate that makes it favorable for the visitors to visit during any time of the year since most of the days are sunny. During the winter, the temperatures hang around 20 degrees Celsius making it perfect for visitors who are trying to evade colder climates. During the summer, temperatures are above 30 degrees, but this is not a big problem since there are numerous surrounding beaches where one can cool off. Most of the residential areas have air conditioners to cool the temperatures, and they are quite affordable.
Food and drinks
There are all sorts of foods and drinks Perth has to offer since it features restaurants, cafes, and bars that run throughout the day. The seafood is astonishing, and no one wants to miss such a meal as it is composed of marron, barramundi, lobster, oysters, prawns, and scallops.
The indigenous history
Perth was founded by the Noongar people, and they used to worship in Swam River. Many tales are revolving the Wagyl, a water-serpent which many believed it created and maintained this river alongside the water features present in Perth. It is thought that Wagy entered the ground not far from Kings Park and arose at the bottom of Mt Eliza, creating a river.
