The capital city of Western Australia and an urban hub quite unlike any other, Perth has experienced growth and evolutions since its founding in 1829. Perth began as a small European colony, but the population boomed during the region’s gold rush in the late 19th century. Perth also served as a naval base for submarines operating in the Pacific Theatre during World War II.
Today, Perth is still a major mining hub, with a growing population of immigrants coming to the city for work opportunities. Given its strong economy, ever-growing population, and access to infrastructure, health facilities, educational opportunities, and cultural centers, Perth is ranked seventh for the world’s most livable cities by the Economist Intelligence Unit.
Perth and the Arts
Perth is known internationally for its eclectic mix of music, theatre, dance, comedy, visual art, and fine art. The city is home to live music performances almost every night, as well as active and vibrant cultural hotspots like Perth City, Northbridge, Subiaco, and Fremantle.
Perth also offers its own take on “public art trails.” These trails are city-organized outdoor art exhibits that attract locals and tourists alike. The presentations lead visitors across parkways, city squares, boulevards, walking paths, and other regions of Perth, all along the way showcasing a unique art exhibit every few hundred feet or so. This is public art and street art, Perth style!
