A modern metropolis of glassy skyscrapers, waterside boulevards, and lush residential neighborhoods, Perth sits on the edge of the Swan Coastal Plain.

There's lots more to do: admire the natural beauty at Kings Park & Botanic Garden, make a trip to Monument Hill War Memorial, pause for some photo ops at The Bell Tower, and take in the spiritual surroundings of St. George's Cathedral.
