Located on the banks of the Swan River and bordering the Indian Ocean, Perth is an active and modern city, which has grown to become the capital of the state of Western Australia and the fourth largest city in the country. Its location, in the same geographical area and time zone as the greatest Asian capitals, allows Perth to maintain dynamic business relationships with this part of the world.
It has experienced a high growth curve, notably owing to the abundance of its mining resources. Gold, nickel and diamonds are extracted with the help of advanced technology and thanks to the influx of men coming from the four corners of the continent (and beyond) to take advantage of this favourable economic trend. With its heavenly beaches, the city has become a hotspot for surfers and other watersports lovers. People wishing to work in the service sector (hotels, restaurants, shops, etc.) can easily find a seasonal job in this Eldorado of sunshine and seasports. Don’t miss out on this atypical destination during your language study trip to Australia.
