Perth is the growing capital of Western Australia – situated on the west side of Australia – a region where vegetation and natural beauties are quite varied. This is a vibrant young cosmopolitan City.
It is a relatively small and quiet city compared to the east coast capitals. Its main shopping areas can be reached on foot. The impression is of a city full of life, but without a lot of the stresses associated with major Global cities which can be a big attraction for International Students looking for a destination that offers a relatively easy transition.
The Perth region offers breathtaking waves, as in Margareth River and The Bluff. Waves of more than 12 feet can be found without any difficulties in this area that receives the same swell that reaches the Indonesian seas. The waves are a major attraction for visitors from all around the world and Margaret River also hosts one of the legs of the WSL world surfing tour. Being based in Perth also makes travel to Bali a world recognized tourism and surf destination very easy and affordable.
The city has been growing a lot, in 2007 it was the capital with the lowest unemployment in the country, offering numerous opportunities for newcomers and being an excellent option for those who are looking for a new destination in Australia with ease to find a job.
Perth has a great advantage for those who wish to exchange and improve the English language.
Lastly, the cost of living in the city should also be taken into consideration, it is about 20% lower than in Sydney, even with the recent boom in the local real estate market, Perth is still a city that offers excellent cost-benefit ratio and attracts students from all over the world so is rightly regarded as one of Australia’s premier destinations for a study abroad experience.
