Perth sits on the banks of the Swan River.
A dynamic and pleasant city to live in, Perth has the strange peculiarity of being without doubt the most isolated capital in the world. It is bordered to the south by the port of Fremantle, which was talked about a lot during the America's Cup. Visit the zoo, sail along the Swan River, have a drink in the South Terrace and Subiaco districts. Get on a ferry to Rottnest Island and spend a day or two there.
