I guess the buildings are impressive, but there needs to be more density on that skyline! It has great potential, and beautiful surroundings!

I'll give it a good, hm...9!

I was wondering, does the city have any history? I mean, it is one of the most isolated cities in the world, so not much must have been going on there...Or is it? Anyway's...I would like to know more about the city...

Yeah it has a history, well its the hub of the whole western half of the country! I live here and still don't know much about it but there are heaps of shipwrecks and European expeditions and stuff, and that famous guy, Stirling I think? He landed and settled here, and then all the convicts from England came here. He chose the site for Perth and stuff but all the poms hated it here; since they were from England they hated the heat, the soil, the insects, everything. I'm not sure how many were here by choice (I think it was advertised in England as a luxurious new place to live, and when they got here it was completely different!) and yeah some were prisoners.

I went to the site of a ship landing, (it's also the site of a graveyard and churh) by the river, it's a beautiful place. There were plaques about the settlers in the 1800's, a few of them were killed by aboriginals.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help but I'm sure there is a rich history, if you ever come here just check out the maritime museum or something.

i did it this year in s n e , settled in 1829, first evidence of an explorer was Dirk Hartog in 1616 then in the 1690's and replaced the plate that dirk left on a tree, he took the original back to holland.

when it was settled it was offered in england, free land for people who came to Perth, the land they were given then would now be worth millions of dollars because of its location on the swan river.

8.0/10 - I've always had this fondness for Perth's skyline. The sheer number of buildings isn't necessarily there, but it demonstrates that Aussie genius for creating very memorable skylines so evident in the cases of Melbourne and Sydney. I love it.

Quite a clustered skyline, but can do with more scrapers...

7.5/10
