The City of Perth has become a vibrant hub of eating and drinking and some fantastic things to do. Here is our top ten list to make sure you tick off your Perth list:
The Perth Mint is Australia’s oldest operating mint and a historic landmark in Perth. Built in the 19th century to refine gold brought in from the Gold Rush, the Mint offers a great insight to the history of the goldrush era as well as modern coin making. Witness a traditional gold pour in The Perth Mint’s original melting house, which has been fashioned as a small auditorium with the last remaining Furness taking centre stage.
