Things we love:

Perth boasts the largest inner city park in the world. As the sunniest capital in the world (average 8 hours per day), everyone is high on vitamin D. Back in 1962 residents turned on all their lights so they were visible by astronaut John Glenn from space hence being known as ‘the city of lights’.

They love a pop-up to keep us on our toes, from restaurants and farmers markets to cinemas.

Things we wish we’d known:
