Perth is the capital and largest city of Western Australia. It is separated from Adelaide by the distance of 2,139km to the east that includes the Nullarbor. Perth spreads out along on a flat coastal plain, dissected by the Swan River and it spreads over the Darling Scarp to the east and the Indian Ocean coastline to the west is the only real physical boundary.

Perth City is the central business district in Perth, but there are plenty of other things to see than just tall buildings and busy men in suits.
