Perth's Cultural Attractions

Perth is a five hour flight from the eastern seaboard cities of Sydney and Melbourne and with a population of less than two million it is simply not economical to shift large touring bands such a great distance for potentially, such a limited return. This does not mean, however, that Perth lacks attractions and to say its music and arts scene is quiet simply could not be further from the truth.

Indeed, it is precisely because Perth is so isolated that the local arts and music scene has become so vibrant. The city has earned the nickname The New Seattle because independent acts and artists have been forced to take up the gap where overseas or east coast figures are not able or do not have enough funding to, make regular trips to Perth’s entertainment venues.

These include the Burswood Entertainment Complex which is a multi use centre that includes everything from a palatial casino replete with five star hotel and exclusive fitness centre to a several thousand seat entertainment centre called the Burswood Dome which is used, variously, for sporting events and live concerts.

Each visitor will select their preferred Perth hotel. The choice is certainly not limited to the large commercial precinct around the Burswood Entertainment complex. In fact when it comes to any and every kind of hotel Perth provides. In all areas of the city are mid range, medium priced hotels that suit business travelers and families. Elsewhere, there are plenty of dirt cheap student dormitories.

Located on the picturesque Swan River, Perth is compact enough to be navigated on foot, at least in its central areas. There is no need to worry about metro maps in a city that is compact like Perth. For day trips and excursions to regions such as the beautiful nearby Margaret River, however, hire cars will definitely be required.

However, many people who venture to the Margaret River choose to do so on bus tours with a driver. This is because the area is justifiably famous for its wineries and so wine tasting days and getting behind the wheel of a vehicle do not often go together very well.

It is much more convenient to have your own wheels, but if a lot of wine is going to be sampled, and on day trips to the Margaret River this is invariably the case, sometimes a driven tour group is a better option since when this is arranged, everyone can let their hair down and no one has to go without in order to be the designated driver.

Perth’s shopping scene is not really on a par with that in Sydney and Melbourne, the eastern cities where fashion and design are very highly prized. However, Perth’s proximity to Australia’s vast mining areas means that precious stones and associated jewelry such as opals and gold are in abundance in Perth.

They are not necessarily any cheaper in Perth than they are anywhere else, but the range and quality is top notch. Gold fine chains are very good buys and one of the attractions in Perth is the surfeit of jewelry stores and expert jewelers in town who are able to give really expert advice to novice shoppers. They can be trusted.
