In contrast to Hong Kong our accommodation was set in a suburb of Perth in Victoria Park. The heat upon arrival wasn't too bad as we arrived very early in the morning however as the day progressed the heat became almost unbearable as we took a bus into the city centre.
The public transport in Perth was significantly cheaper than London both with buses and trains as well as free 'CAT' buses that go around the city centre. It was however easy to immediately tell that almost everything else was as expensive or more than england. Perth city itself was nice and aesthetically pleasing especially with the lovely sunshine but there wasn't a lot of attractions, especially for international tourists in the city with only a big shopping centre and bell tower being the notable attractions.
The next 2 days we spent exploring beaches in freemantle a seaside town just outside Perth which reminded me of Weymouth/Bournemouth with the beaches and cafes lining the beach.
Perth was a nice city that I imagine is great to live in as a local but backpacking wise it didn't have very much to offer, looking forward to Melbourne and the next leg of the journey!
