- Experience IHG Hotels in Perth
Perth, the oceanside capital of Western Australia, is as well known for its laid-back lifestyle as it is for its natural beauty. The compact city centre has experienced rapid growth thanks to the recent mining boom. Whether you’re seeking vibrant nightlife, culture or simply want to enjoy extensive parklands and world-class beaches, Perth will not disappoint.
Perth: city layout
The sprawling suburbs of Perth lie along the meandering Swan River and the stunning west Australian coastline. To the west of the city centre, atop Mount Eliza, is Kings Park, a mixture of natural bushland and botanical gardens, with sweeping views across the city.
The new Elizabeth Quay waterfront redevelopment links the CBD with the river’s northern foreshore. Restaurants, bars and the glass-spire Bell Tower are the backdrop for year-round events. The area is easily accessible by public transport and a riverside cycle path.
The once separate port city of Fremantle is now connected to Perth by residential suburbs. It offers markets and waterside dining, while the historic Roundhouse is a reminder of the port’s early settlement.
