Living in Perth: Area Profile

Living in Perth is almost like living in a holiday destination. Not because of the flocks of tourists, but because of the laid back, easy breezy lifestyle this city boasts. In fact, Perth was named one of the seventh most liveable cities in the world according to The Economist due to its steadily growing lifestyle, population and economic prosperity. Not to mention, Perth is also one of Australia’s sunniest capital cities, so you can enjoy warm weather all year round.

Amenities and Infrastructure:

The city of Perth is built around the Swan River and has a compact city centre different to the likes of Sydney and Melbourne. Therefore, while you’re living in a capital city, you certainly don’t get the “busy” feeling that often comes along with it. Being a small city, no matter where you live, you’re in close proximity to a range of shopping centres, public transport, reputable schools, hospitals, universities and other important amenities.

Perth is also undergoing major redevelopments of key areas of the city including Elizabeth Quay, the Perth City Link, the Eastern Gateway, the Optus Stadium and the New WA Museum. Each of these redevelopments is aimed at improving the liveability of Perth and will help further transform the city.

Lifestyle and Community:

Living in Perth is the perfect combination of city and beachside living at an affordable price. There aren’t many cities in Australia, let alone the world, where you can live within 20 minutes or less of the CBD and some of the world’s best beaches for under $1m. When living in Perth, enjoy morning runs and afternoon swims at the beach, weekends walking through the botanic gardens, eating at café’s and dining at some of the country’s best restaurants.

As well as the holiday-esque lifestyle, Perth is made up of an amazing community of friendly people, making it a safe and welcoming place to live. No matter when you’re moving from, Perth will welcome you with open arms – you’ll never want to leave.
