3 hotels in Perth to suit every budget

Perth, despite being the capital city of Western Australia, is a country town that woke up one day and realised it was a city. That’s how the residents describe it, but Ryan Mossny agrees.

He told Escape:

“The appeal of Perth is near perfect weather, pristine beaches, an amazing restaurant and bar scene,” he explains

“(There’s) lots of things to do.”

Ryan says the highlights can be found within the city in Fremantle and Scarborough.

“The city for obvious reasons,” he says. “Freo [Fremantle] is spectacular with its convict-built buildings, bohemian lifestyle and the only licensed beach in the country. With the Scarborough redevelopment, you now have lots of cool places to eat and drink, night-time markets and the pool.”
