Perth, a dream city

Travel Mauritius Perth
Under the warm Western Australian sun, Perth stretches along the Swan River, revealing the image of a city that answers to many expectations. Business is run smoothly but Perth citizens do not compromise with maintaining a healthy life balance.

At the heart of the city, trees line up along the Mall, opening its pedestrian area between Hay and Murray streets and offering famous brands, various restaurants and souvenir shops. Further on, the Western Australian Museum displays contemporary art while also recounting the history of the country and Aboriginal traditions. Nightlife is at its best in popular Northbridge and its many restaurants, nightclubs and jazz bars.

Perth reflects the Australian priority for nature preservation and life balance. Green spaces such as the King's Park are favourites after work. Families set up their picnics on the lawn while joggers tread the paths along the Swan River.
