Buoyed by a history of mineral wealth and foreign investment, Perth has high-rise buildings dotting the skyline, and an influx of immigrants gives the city a healthy diversity. Some of Australia's finest sandy beaches, sailing, and fishing are within 15 minutes' drive of the city; the best seaside villages and postcard beaches lie just north of bohemian Fremantle. The main business thoroughfare is St. Georges Terrace, an elegant street lined with skyscrapers and an excellent set-back entertainment precinct, while urban villages such as Leederville and Mt. Lawley deliver chic-yet-welcoming community vibes. Perth's literal highlight is King's Park, 1,000 acres of greenery atop Mt. Eliza, which affords panoramic city views.
