the empty streets were taken early on a sunday morning. Im in Sydney right now and it was much the same early this morning! (saturday)

Notice the cranes in the first pic? All residential towers going up like never before - the city is changing.

Everything looks very clean and organized. Makes me wonder if there are any dumpy areas of Australian cities...

Great photos!

There defiantely are. the northern part of Barrack street in perth is pretty risgue/smutty from what I recall. But Sterility is worse, I rather be in a city with grit rather than one that's sterile, which Perth feels like at the moment.

When I visited, the city was dead at 8:30.

lol yeah its has been for a while but with all then new redevelopments Perth is really changing since our recent mining boom! (for comparison in terms of % we are running hotter than china in Western Australia)

so much construction going on .....

Nice pics, looks like a nice city! Does the isolation affect the people in any way?

No, life is good here.

There are planes that take us anywhere in the world lol, even a train that goes to Sydney from here!

If it was a much smaller place it may be a problem being so far away.


Perth Beaches...
