With over 150 full-colour photographs to entice the reader, Portrait of Perth is the perfect souvenir for every visitor to this fascinating region.
Perth, capital of Western Australia, is a vibrant, fast-growing city with a modern outlook. Yet, at the same time, it is home to some of Australias most beautifully preserved historic buildings. With a near-perfect climate, glorious beaches and the languid Swan River, Perth is blessed with an abundance of natural resources that make it an ideal tourist destination. Inland, national parks provide visitors with the opportunity to encounter Australias indigenous wildlife in its natural habitat, while along the coast to the south, the historic port of Fremantle offers an escape from the big city bustle of its neighbour. Offshore, Rottnest Island is a tranquil getaway that attracts both the international visitor and the Perth resident.
