    City Living

    Perth is a vibrant, cosmopolitan city, with exciting opportunities and experiences on offer year round.

A capital city lifestyle like no other.

From the magnificent Swan River on your doorstep, to unique cultural experiences, unique retail offerings and fantastic cafes, Perth has something for everyone. It’s no wonder we’re consistently recognised as one of the most liveable cities in the world.

More people are embracing City living.

More than 30,000 people call the City of Perth home, and we want to see that grow to 55,000 by 2036 and 90,000 by 2050. We’ve released a number of initiatives that will see the City lead the way in putting Perth first with developers, investors and buyers.
