Why We Chose Perth

As the daughter of an ex Pat I have lived in various places around the world so why we chose Perth as the place to live.

When you arrive in Perth and take your first walk through the city you will be amazed how clean the city is! It is a relatively small city so you can pretty much walk to everywhere, although there are CAT buses that you can jump on and off and its free 😀

Some people say WA stands for Wait Awhile but that is another of its charms. You are never rushed its a more laid back style of living.

Once you have your own transport a whole new world opens up for you. Within 30-40 minutes drive the vast array of experiences waiting to be explored are amazing.

To the west we have some of the best beaches on offer,

So I choose Perth because it doesn’t feel crowded or overly busy, because there are endless natural experiences on my doorstep and the food and drink offerings are expanding all the time 😀
