The state is 10 times the size of the UK and most of Western Europe fits within its borders. The population of Western Australia is approximately 2.5 million with 75% living in Perth and its surrounding areas. Other significant population centers include Bunbury (65,000), Geraldton (32,000), Kalgoorlie-Boulder (31,000), Albany (27,000), Karratha (17,000), Broome (13,000) and Port Hedland (14,000).


Perth is regularly ranked in the top 10 most liveable cities in the world and offers an enviable lifestyle to the thousands of British and European migrants who choose to make their home in this forever sprawling city. Perth is located on the banks of the Swan River and sits directly beneath Kings Park which is one of the largest inner city parks in the world with stunning views of Perth City, the Swan River, Indian Ocean and surrounding suburbs. The total area of the park is 400.6 hectares and features both cultivated gardens and untamed bush land and is home to the spectacular Western Australian Botanic Garden, which displays over 3,000 species of the State’s unique flora.
