Perth takes life in its stride. Perhaps more than in any other Australian state capital, the focus here is on taking things easy, taking them slow, and savouring the good times.

Happily, there’s plenty to savour - both in the city, day trips from Perth or even further into WA. Perth’s weather rarely deviates from delightful, a sublime Indian Ocean sunset is never too far off and Rottnest Island – just a 25-minute ferry ride from Fremantle – is home to quokkas. Don’t know what a quokka is? Google Image ‘quokka selfie’ for instant merriment.

As a city that owes its fortune mostly to mining and agriculture, Perth often feels midway between a big city and small country town. Only a handful of skyscrapers silhouette the city skyline; parks, waterways and beaches are ubiquitous; and it’s widely appreciated that some things just operate at their own pace. Meanwhile, the dining is superb, the atmosphere cosmopolitan and the arts and music scenes taking off big time. Perth makes the weekend feel like a weeklong affair.
