Pace of life is slower here than Sydney or Melbourne, but the combination of big-city attractions with relaxed and informal surrounds offers an appealing lifestyle and lots to do for locals and visitors alike.

Try to avoid traveling on trains and buses during these periods of the day as well, especially if traveling alone.
Perth is the first Australian city to have free wifi in the CBD area. The only con is that you are limited to 50mbs per connection, or one hour, whichever comes first.
