Perth CBD is bounded by the crystal clear Swan River to the south and east and the grand Kings Park on the western end. Railway lines currently form a northern border but forward- thinking Perth have plans to sink a section of this railway line to give street- level access to the major entertainment hub of Northbridge, the suburb just on from The Perth Cultural Centre.

Dining out is a joy in Perth with a wide selection of cuisines available including Chinese, Indian, Japanese, Malaysian, Korean, Italian, Turkish and Polish.
