Enjoying Perth cafe culture. When it comes to cafe culture, Perth knows exactly what it's doing! The waterside city is the capital of Western Australia and an incredibly relaxed, beautiful destination which - because of its geography - tends to be a little less well-known than its sister cities of Sydney and Melbourne. It sits alongside the Swan River, where it joins the southwest coast, and is lined with sandy beaches. Key attractions include the huge Kings Park on the river's edge and Mount Eliza's Botanic Gardens which display a sweeping panorama of the city in its full glory. There is plenty of culture and entertainment too, with the Cultural Centre housing the state's opera and ballet companies, and with plenty of museums, art galleries and theatres. Dining out here is a real experience too, and you'll love the top quality cafes in Perth which are open day and night and packed with treats to tempt you!
