Perth and Fre­man­tle beckon

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - MATTA FAIR -

WESTERN Aus­tralia is listed among the best- val­ued des­ti­na­tions for 2016 on Lonely Planet.

Cap­i­tal of Western Aus­tralia, Perth, is a cos­mopoli­tan city sur­rounded by the nat­u­ral beauty of the Swan River and Kings Park.

Perth’s su­perb po­si­tion on the banks of the Swan River and nearby hectares of nat­u­ral bush­land in Kings Park make for a city cen­tred on the great out­doors.

But there’s more to the west coast cap­i­tal than great sun­shine and a sparkling river.

A new cos­mopoli­tan per­spec­tive and eco­nomic growth has given Perth a cul­tural con­fi­dence that is mak­ing its mark on the city sky­line and on other as­pects of ur­ban life.

Set on the banks of the broad Swan River, this mod­ern city is of­ten de­scribed as the most iso­lated city of its size in the Western world. Boast­ing more hours of sun­shine than any other cap­i­tal city in Aus­tralia, the pleas­ant weather and di­verse mix of ur­ban, coastal and culi­nary ex­pe­ri­ences make Perth an ideal hol­i­day des­ti­na­tion for both do­mes­tic and in­ter­na­tional vis­i­tors.

The city is lined with pedes­trian malls packed with a wide va­ri­ety of shops from in­ven­tive bou­tiques to na­tional and global flag­ship stores where you can stock up on stylish fash­ions, buy Abo­rig­i­nal art or sim­ply sit at a cafe and watch peo­ple pass­ing by.

Perth is in the cen­tre of an ex­cit­ing pe­riod of ex­pan­sion and new de­vel­op­ments, with bold new de­sign projects and re­de­vel­op­ments such as Perth Arena, Bar­rack St Jetty and El­iz­a­beth Quay dra­mat­i­cally chang­ing its face.

El­iz­a­beth Quay fea­tures trendy new cafes, bars and restau­rants for those look­ing to get the most out of their din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.

There’s also a host of ac­tiv­i­ties on of­fer at the Quay, such as cruises.

There are many at­trac­tions to visit through­out Perth City, in­clud­ing The Bell Tower, The Perth Mint, Perth Zoo, Scitech, Perth Cul­tural Cen­tre and Kings Park where you’ll find 400 hectares of stun­ning nat­u­ral bush­land and grand look­outs – a pop­u­lar place for tak­ing pho­tos.

The city of Fre­man­tle – just 30 min­utes from Perth – has re­cently been named in Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel 2016.

The lat­est Lonely Planet guide ranked Fre­man­tle as the sev­enth best city in the world, be­hind the top- ranked Ko­tor in Mon­tene­gro but ahead of the 10th- placed Rome.

Fre­man­tle is a bustling, dy­namic port city that has long been renowned for its eclec­tic mix of arty and al­ter­na­tive types.

Fre­man­tle’s streets buzz with the song of buskers, the side­walks fill with a wild col­lec­tion of art and mu­sic floats out from trendy cafes and bars.
