Perth is the capital city of Western Australia, was recently declared to be the world’s fifth most ‘liveable’ city, and prides itself as being the sunniest of all Australia’s capitals. Perth also has the reputation of being Australia’s friendliest city.
Perth’s city centre is the home of business, as well as dozens of new bars, clubs and restaurants. Surrounding entertainment districts provide relaxed environments for music, theatre, festivals and cinema and are minutes away from the peace and security of residential areas.
Perth is home to four public universities:
The University of Western Australia, Curtin University, Murdoch University and Edith Cowan University. There is also one private university, the University of Notre Dame.
Perth’s Public Transport System is divided into travel “zones” and is designed to be easy to use for everyone visiting our city. We have a safe, modern network of buses, trains and ferries, which is always under expansion to meet the needs of our growing city. Students are able to use any combination of these three services on one ticket. As an international student, you will receive a 40 per cent discount on all public transport throughout Western Australia!
