Perth key facts:

With an average of 8 hours of sunshine per day all year round, Perth is the sunniest capital city in the world.

Perth has the largest inner-city park in the whole world: King’s Park spans 4.06 km², pipping New York’s Central Park at 3.41 km².

‘Perthians’ love the water with the city’s stunning coastline stretching across miles of white sand and crystal-clear ocean.

Looking to move down under? It might be time to consider moving to Perth, Australia?

The last recorded population consensus showed that only 35% of Perth residents named Australia as their country of Perth, thus highlighting the multicultural and expat friendliness of the place.

As the capital and largest city in the Australian state of Western Australia (WA), Perth is home to a modest population of just 2 million residents.
This spare population means there is less pressure on resources, with large open planned detached homes complete with their own swimming pool the norm.

As a coastal city to you are never far from either the vast Swan River or the Indian Ocean. As summer temperatures soar, everyone is on the water sailing, surfing or swimming to cool down.

Despite its isolated geographical position (it’s actually closer to Singapore than Sydney) there is more than enough to see and do in Perth to keep you busy.

Northbridge is Perth’s equivalent to Shoreditch, kitted out with trendy boutiques, Asian eateries and a plethora of cocktail loungers, it’s fast becoming the young professionals place of choice.

For those wanting a more relaxed lifestyle, the port suburb of Fremantle offers cool temperatures complemented by some of WA’s finest eating and drinking establishments.

An average rent for a flat/house in a central area is around $1650 (£921) per month.

Perth has been suffering from a downturn in its property market in recent years with house prices taking a fall.

However, Western Australia’s economy and population growth are showing strong signs of recovery, according to local real estates agent, Jones Lang LaSalle.

There is also lots of wiggle-room for those prepared to venture further afield from the CBD to more remote suburbs.

Joondalup is considered one of the best having been cited by the Sunday Times as “one of the top ten areas for capital growth in Perth”.
The suburb offers excellent local amenities in a friendly and relaxed setting with a huge collection of restaurants, bars, clubs, and cafes all just 20 minutes from the city centre.

Buying a home in Perth is different to purchasing in the UK. Things move much more quickly too, so you need to be sure you have found the right home for you before you commit.

Living Costs In Perth

Perth’s residents have some of the highest disposable incomes across the whole of Australia.

The cost of housing is 42% lower when compared to London and rents are 55% lower based on a one bedroomed apartment.

Transportation costs are around 53% lower with a monthly public pass costing £14.

Utilities for 1-month (heating, electricity, gas) cost just £81 based on 1-person usage

Fuel is 39% cheaper and is currently £0.80p per litre.
Groceries are 13.18% higher in Perth than London.

Those expats that have lived elsewhere in Australia first remark at the more laidback lifestyle in Perth, compared to the ‘go getter’ outlook of Sydney.

What’s more, the cost of living in Perth is significantly cheaper In Perth socialising doesn’t have to be at an expensive restaurant. People tend to get together at one another’s houses, throw a BBQ together, drink some beers and enjoy each other’s company at low cost.

One downside of Perth’s isolated status is that supermarket items tend to be more expensive because they must be transported across vast distances.

When compared with major UK cities, there are still plenty of savings to be made in other areas, especially when it comes to utilities. Not to mention the warm weather keeps heating bills down to a minimum!

Jobs Market When Moving To Perth

Western Australia is the country’s strongest job market with thousands of people finding full-time work as the State’s economic recovery gains traction.

The economy is strongly linked to the mining industry which has blessed it with the highest per capita number of self-made millionaires in any city in the world.

A record number of Western Australians are holding down a job, either part or full-time.

Agriculture and tourism are also large players in the Perth region’s economy.

Perth’s economy has been gradually shifting towards the service industries since the 1950s.

There are always jobs in the areas of retail and wholesale trade, business services, health, education and public administration.

The resources industry and to a lesser extent, agriculture have also made up a substantial chunk of the jobs market in Perth which relies heavily on skills shortages being filled by expats and overseas workers.

There is a large oil refinery at Kwinana, just 25 km south of Perth which is currently advertising for a number of associated engineering and chemicals job roles.

Schools In Perth

Perth has a mix of state and private schools and several international schools. Students may attend either public schools, run by the state government or private/faith schools.

School attendance officially becomes compulsory from age six and remains so until students turn 17.

An emphasis on outdoor learning and participation in sport and exercise.
Higher education provision is excellent, and students have a choice of four universities to choose from; University of Western Australia, Curtin University, Murdoch University, and Edith Cowan University.

With a scarcer population school attendance is not strictly governed by what neighbourhood you live in and children are almost guaranteed a spot at their local school.

Mirroring much of the culture elsewhere in Australia, schools in Perth place a heavy emphasis on an outdoors lifestyle.

It’s not unusual to have classes outside or sports activities run in conjunction with after school clubs to encourage pupils to lead an active and healthy lifestyle.

Expats with a permanent visa are entitled to send their children to public schools in Perth tuition-free.

Those not on eligible visas will have to pay an annual family tuition fee if they want their child to attend a public school.
