More About Perth
Defying the normal notion of a city, Perth is calm, quiet and distant. Far-flung amidst the Indian Ocean and the crumbling coastal cliffs of the Darling Range, Perth is renowned as the world’s most cut off and secluded capital city. With a cool climate, a laid-back attitude, quintessential thatched hamlets and drop-dead gorgeous beaches, this city, without doubt, makes a fabulous climax to what Western Australia has to offer. So a vacation here is all about enjoying the open air life and not being cooped up in the hotel room. Having always been aspersed as rather dull, Perth’s sudden growth to being one of the top ten livable cities in the world has taken everyone by surprise. A great source of mineral resources coupled with spectacular foreign deals, Perth has journeyed a long way across mine fields and ores to its present scenario of skyscrapers, winding highways, plush bars and glitzy structures.
Natives, immigrants and tourists blend in the buzz of the St Georges Terrace Street, the most hip as well as the busiest in the city. Wildflowers bloomed in plenty beside the boulevards and sidewalks, sway gently in the breeze. Defining elegance and charm, this street is built parallel to the Swan River that flows through the towns of Perth. At a glance from the pinnacle of Mount Eliza, one of the topmost points here, the city appears like a multihued fairyland. As exquisite beaches frame the northern border of Perth, Fermantle, the grassy King’s Park takes up a vast expanse of tranquil gardens sprawled on the Mount Eliza. Photographers vie with one another to produce yet another magnificent image from the lookout point in the park of the city nestled by the Swan River.
With everything historic and pre-historic, Fremantle is a place to watch vibrant streetscapes, but not without a touch of modernity to it. A short stroll or a bike ride along the banks of the Swan River takes you to the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Round House, the oldest in the nation was originally put up as a panoptical prison in the 17th century, a short distance away from the bathers coast. But though desolate looking, this prison is not as gory as you may expect. The gothic styled Fremantle Arts Centre on the Ord Street is another testimony to the 17th century architectural heritage of Perth, which was once an asylum. Lots of Perth’s national monuments and edifices reflect such absurd paradoxes. The beautiful courtyard planted with nice gardens and arty relics inside belonging to yesteryears make it a must visit for any tourist to Perth. Music concerts are hosted here in some weekends.
The Fremantle bazaars pose a great temptation to shopaholics of any rank with its exotic handicrafts, paintings, sculptures and sumptuous delectable, a good combination with shopping. The indigenous dance, busker, is performed on the streets from time to time. On the extreme end of the markets are the vegetable souks, where locals on their bicycles come to purchase vegetables at an unbelievably reduced price. This chain of ethnic markets is considered to be a major gem in the heritage of the city, which is also attached to other ancient monuments in the vicinity. The High Street in the Fremantle town plays host to numerous souvenir shops from where people pick up various nautical items as well as aboriginal toys.
Of course, we have barely scratched the surface of what you can expect when you land there. Rest is for you to discover!
