Just a glance at an Australian map will tell you that the greatest concentration of population is on the eastern side of the country. Have you ever wondered what its like on the west coast? Visit Perth, Western Australia and discover another side of Australia. Virtually every postcard and panoramic picture you see of Perth features the Swan River in the foreground with glimmering modern skyscrapers in the background. These photographs capture the spirit of this city of 1.7 million perfectly. As big and bustling as Perth is, it has never lost touch with nature or an appreciation of beauty and refinement.
Its location on the banks of the Swan River is no accident. The site was chosen because it was a safe and fertile inland location that offered easy water access to the coastal port, some 20 miles west. Back then, the Swan was the most important transport route. Today, it is equally important as the backdrop for the Perth lifestyle. Most of Perth's most popular attractions are located around the beautiful Swan River. Back in 1872, city founders set aside 172 hectares to be developed and maintained as a public space. Perth Park's name was changed in 1901 to King's Park and its perimeter expanded to four hundred hectares. This makes it the largest urban park in the world. In the park, you will find over 250 plant species and 100 species of animals. In the heart of King's Park and under the authority of the Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority is the remarkable Aspects of King's Park gallery and retail center. Aspects showcases the work of many of Australia's most esteemed artists and artisans. Every fine art and craft media is on display here, including paintings, photography, sculpture, glass, ceramics, wood and much more. For an inspiring day of shopping or window shopping, call in at Aspects while you're exploring King's Park. After that, pay a visit to the equally inspiring Aboriginal Art Gallery and chat with the aboriginal performers who work there between performances. It's a great way to learn about Perth and Australia's rich aboriginal history and perhaps pick up an example of fine aboriginal arts and crafts while you're there. A must-see attraction in Perth is the amazing Bell Tower on Riverside Drive. The Bell Tower itself is a breathtaking example of modern architecture. Inside, it is home to an amazing assortment of historic bells that can be seen nowhere else. These include the ring of bells that was gifted to the people of WA during the Australian Bicentennial celebrations of 1988 and many other historic bells, including one that weighs 459KG that dates back to 1550 and the 12 bells of St. Martin-in-the-Fields, which were originally cast before the 14th century. These few examples of Perth attractions are just a handful out of dozens of places to see and things to do in this amazing city. Once you have visited Perth, you will understand why it has been voted one of the world's finest capital cities. Your Perth accommodation will reflect the city itself - refined, sophisticated and still in touch with nature.
