Tourists in Perth

It has been years since we spent any time in the city, so on a recent trip we decided to stay in Perth’s centre and have a look around.  We haven’t lived in Perth for five and a half years; the skyline has certainly changed and the new  Elizabeth Quay is progressing into a very impressive development on the Swan River.

The view of the city and river from up at Kings Park is gorgeous on a lovely winters day.

Even though there has been quite a few new skyscrapers built across the city it is lovely to see that many of the original buildings have been preserved.

Around the city there are some interesting sights.  We were out and about in the early morning before the city started to fill with cars, workers and shoppers.

The trees are changing colour.

On the walls in Prince Lane in the fashion wholesale and manufacturing area of the city, murals reflect the history of the fashion district.

Elizabeth Quay is Perth’s newest development and is planned with tourist, residential, office and commercial facilities taking in views up and down the Swan River.

Although it has been a brief visit we have been surprised by how many changes there have been in Perth….nice to see the city continuing to develop and feel so alive.  The reputation of the city being a quiet and dull little place has certainly gone as far as we are concerned.
