Enjoy the Outdoor Lifestyle in Perth

Western Australia has traditionally had the strongest economy in Australia and it is set to remain relatively strong in the coming years. Mining and its associated sectors, such as metal processing and petrochemicals, are still significant sources of employment in Perth. The services sector is also growing in influence and expats can look for opportunities in education, social services, tourism, healthcare, and retail, where those with the right experience may find an easier path into the job market. With national parks, zoos, marinas, boat tours, and beaches, life in Perth is perfect for nature lovers and active expats who want to enjoy the outdoor lifestyle with hiking, kayaking, or fishing. Culture lovers shouldn't feel left out as the city houses a number of impressive art galleries and museums as well as the Edwardian His Majesty's Theater and the striking art deco Regal Theater hosting a variety of shows from ballet to film festivals.
