I've read the comments on this website about Perth and have to disagree. I spent eight months here working and living and found it to be a great place. Yes it is full of expats who seem to have an opinion about everything, but why travel all the way to Australia to speak to them? You get the same thing in Canada, America and other parts of Australia. More people have been hurt or killed on the east coast than the west.
The weather is excellent, in my eight months there it rained three times. It can get hot, but no hotter than Thailand or anywhere else. It has amazing beaches that run the full length of the coast. There is plenty to do and see, Subiaco is a cracking little part of town with Markets and trendy bars. You are a short distance from Fremantle, which again is a lovely place. Cottlesoe beach is ace.
If you’re a sports fan then again there is plenty to choose from (rugby, rugby league, football, Aussie rules etc). Accommodation is cheap and cheerful. Kings Park is a great place to while away the day with free BBQ areas, and late night outdoor movie screenings.
Yes, it’s a remote part of the country, but give it a chance. Don't be so quick to judge a great part of Australia.
