Western Australia, Australia’s biggest state, is home to around 2 million people. And most of them live in the Perth area. Perth, the capital city of Western Australia, is home to the Sunset Coast, where beautiful beaches buddy up with the Indian Ocean, and people buddy up with the beaches’ white sand. In 1962, while orbiting Earth, American astronaut John Glenn gawked at his home planet. Perth residents flicked on their lights and illuminated the city for Glenn. The city was nicknamed “City of Light.” It’s easy to see why Perth can put a spell on people. It’s an enchanting place steeped in unique culture, from its history to its food and art scene. From this righteous recipe, Perth festivals are born.
