InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Perth

Hello to all Americans in Perth! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Perth? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Perth which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: Perth is one of the most relaxed metropolises. The state capital of Western Australia is a very livable city known for its uncomplicated and easy-going atmosphere, superb beaches, colorful street-art scene, and much more! With the local transportation network — called Transperth — consisting of multiple train and bus services, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in the outer municipalities of Greater Perth, such as Joondalup or the eastern Shire of Kalamunda, which are about an hour’s commute away from Perth’s center.

Although Perth has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Perth, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
