Perth, Western Australia Vacation Rentals

Perth is the fourth largest city in Australia and is a sun-baked place that can go weeks or even months without substantial rainfall. The center of Perth is located on the northern bank of the Swan River. Perth is a very green city, with an abundance of parks and tree-lined boulevards. Interestingly, Perth lies closer to Singapore than it does to Canberra and this proximity to Asia is reflected in its business dealings, population and food. Despite its claim that it is the most remote city in the world, Perth is a vibrant and exciting place to spend time and it has plenty to offer visitors. Guests of Perth vacation homes will not be at a loss for things to do. The city has developed a progressive cultural center of museums, art galleries, restaurants and theaters, it's still best known for its long stretches of white sand beaches, quaint islands, and world class wineries. Despite many early sightings of the region, Perth wasn't colonized until the first part of the 1800s. It was known as the Swan River Colony due to its location on the river and it isn't clear exactly where the name "Perth" came from. However, it was chosen by Captain James Stirling, who was on board the first ship to arrive. Perth 's closest city neighbor is Adelaide and this is just over 2,000 kilometers away so it really does live up to its claim at being remote. However, as a thriving metropolitan area it never feels isolated and Perth vacation rentals are a popular destination for tourists no matter what time of year it is.
