About Perth

Curtin University of Technology is based in Perth, capital city of Western Australia. Perth is one of the most affordable and attractive places to live due to its:

With more hours of sunshine than any other Australian capital city, Perth's warm climate and clear, blue skies allow plenty of time to explore the famous beaches, cafes, rivers and wineries around the city.

Perth's beaches are among the best in the world. The wide expanses of white sand and crystal clear water are seemingly endless, and the place to be when the temperature starts to rise. Grab your sunscreen and head to City Beach, Cottesloe, Scarborough or Trigg, to name a few local beaches. If you're feeling adventurous, head as far north or south as you like along WA's sprawling coast and you'll find sun, sand and waves all the way.

About Western Australia

With its vast landscapes ranging from the crystal blue southern ocean to the red sandy heart of central Western Australia, the outback is hard to define in a mere paragraph. Relive the wild days of the 1890s goldrush in Kalgoorlie, explore the wheatbelt with its rolling hills and country pubs, marvel at the wildflowers in spring or stroll along the whitest beaches in Australia at Esperance. It covers an area about as big as Texas, but its natural beauty is like nowhere else on Earth.
