Perth, Western Australia
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Perth is the state capital and most populous city of Western Australia. In June 2004 the Perth Metropolitan Area had an estimated population of 1.5 million, making it the fourth largest city in Australia. Perth is located at 3158′S 11549′E. Perth is renowned for its warm weather and beautiful parks.

Perth's city skyline displays the economic prosperity the state currently enjoys. Its tallest building, Central Park, is by some measures the sixth tallest building in Australia.[1]

Perth is a relatively small city in comparison with the other capital cities in Australia. The Central Business District is the financial centre of Perth, and while a hive of activity during the work week, is relatively quiet and deserted during weekends.


Weather
Perth summers are generally hot and dry, with February generally being the hottest month of the year. The hottest ever recorded temperature in Perth was 46.2C (115F) on 23 February 1991. Winters are cool and moist, though winter rainfall has been declining in recent years. The official temperature for Perth has only twice reached 0C, on 15 July 1997 and 27 July 1998. Even in mid-winter, maximum daytime temperatures only occasionally fall below 16C (60F). Most summer days a sea breeze, which locals refer to as "The Fremantle Doctor", blows from the south-west cooling the city, before temperatures climb too high.
