Safety and Precautions
You'll find Perth a safe city to visit; there aren't any "no-go" neighborhoods, though there are some precautions you should take. Pickpocketing isn't a particular risk, but it's best to keep your personal belongings close, especially in busy shopping areas. Don't leave valuables—such as cameras—in the car when parked overnight, or when visiting attractions. For your personal safety, avoid walking alone, especially late at night. A strong police presence—on foot, bike, and horse—usually ensures that late-night hot spots like Northbridge and Fremantle—are safe.
