Perth in a nutshell

Surf beaches with the purest white sand could be within walking distance of your new home.

Perth is a beautiful city. From Fremantle to Rottnest Island, the west coast of Australia has a lot to offer. Surf beaches with the purest white sand could be within walking distance of your new home. Even if you can't roll out the door and down to the beach, it'll only be a short drive, and you'll be able to experience some of the nicest waters in the country.

Hop on a boat and go across to Rottnest Island for a weekend. See the quokkas, even more amazing beaches and do some fabulous walks around the island. It's a brilliant place to go for a relaxing holiday – just don't fall in love with it too much or you'll never want to leave.

Built on the Swan River, the Perth CBD is a bustling metropolis that every shopper or office worker will enjoy. It's usually sunny in the Western Australian capital, so you can enjoy the outdoors. Kings Park is one of the world's largest inner-city parks, and features cafes, playgrounds, great walks and even some local cultural experiences. That'd be a lunch break to remember!

Getting there is the hardest part

Once you're in Perth, you'll love it. But getting there is the hardest part. If you try to do it yourself, you'll be organising for all of your belongings, big and small, to get all the way across the country, and to the right place at the right time. Did you know that it's further to move from Sydney to Perth (3,294 kilometres) than it is to move from Sydney to Auckland (2,158 kilometres)? Getting to Perth might also mean crossing the Nullarbor Plains, where the temperature can be as high as 48 degrees Celsius in the summer.
