Perth perhaps more than any city embraced car orientated planning. It sits on a large, flat plain and the hinterland is set well back from the coast (25-30km). It's also cheaper to build detached dwellings because the amount you spend in the ground is minimal for most of Perth.

The local government reforms that took place in the 90's didn't help, they essentially ingrained barriers to development that 15-25 years later are only just getting torn down. Remember Claisebrooke was developed in the 90's and that was considered novel.

To be honest i found Sydney to be quieter than i expected the first couple of times i went there, because i had no idea where to go.

Perth really needs a tram network covering the inner areas, because there are so many places that take too long to get to via existing PT options.
