The best tourist information about Perth shows on the Google map of Perth
The Google tourist map of Perth shows Rottnest Island in the west, Joondalup in the north, Midland/Perth Hills in the East and Mandurah in the South of the map. Perth has a low population density because the Australian dream of a house on a block of land instead of apartment living is strong in Perth. It means travelling 100km from the satellite city of Joondalup in the north to Mandurah in the south of Greater Perth, on the freeway takes one hour. This map of Perth shows Perth hospital locations. My wife works at Royal Perth Hospital which is the only hospital in Perth with a trauma unit. The biggest hospital in the southern hemisphere is the new Fiona Stanley hospital south of Perth.

INTERNET IN PERTH
Internet in Perth is delivered via the:
unreliable national broadband network (NBN) at speeds from about 20 to 100mb/second or
mobile broadband network at 2021 prices of about 35 cents per gigabite.
Telstra’s sale’s pitch for NBN delivery was if the service (ISP) is interrupted their router would fall back to using the mobile data network with the SIM card in the router. Their deceptive misleading advertising conduct fails to tell you it’s at less than a useless 1mb/second even though the speed in my Telstra phone plan is much faster in the same area.
THE WORST THINGS ABOUT PERTH
Anti-social, inconsiderate, noisy hoons. Hoons are dickheads who take the muffler out of their car’s exhaust pipe and drive aggressively to make loud street noise. If you’re a hoon you can flame me by commenting on the Youtube Perth hoon video.
The high cost of living. However, hotel construction has increased supply of hotel rooms and in 2020 Covid diminished demand for hotel rooms thus resulting in low price hotel rooms Perth wide.
Perth is the most isolated city in the world. That mean’s travel costs, even within the biggest state of Australia, are expensive. Travel time is long too.
BEST THINGS ABOUT PERTH
A nice environment such as pristine Indian Ocean waters is on my list of the best things about Perth. It’s rare to get such spectacular, clean, white sand, surf beaches right on the doorstep of a city with a population of 1 million people.
Summer stone fruits, melons, figs and grapes. Thing like cherries which don’t grow in Perth are still close enough a couple of hundred kilometres south of Perth. So too is big surf and fine wines of the Margaret River wine region.
Job opportunities stemming from harvesting the natural resources of Western Australia. There always seems to be enough work. Perthites work hard. They have high disposable incomes. State income which is not syphoned off by the Australian Federal government comes from resources royalties and taxes from hard-working Perthites.
Perth is a close 3 hours flight to Bali Hotels and exotic holidays at luxury beach hotels in South East Asia.
