EXPERIENCE PERTHWelcome to Australia's sunniest capital
Perth is a cosmopolitan city, with wide ethnic and cultural diversity. The city centre is on the Swan River 12 kilometres from the Indian Ocean port of Fremantle.
The city enjoys a Mediterranean climate, and has all of the essential ingredients for a great destination; some of Australia’s best beaches, plenty of nightlife, bustling markets, inner city parks, outdoor dining and amazing marine adventures. Of course February is Festival time and we invite everyone to come along to experience art in a different light.
Perth is Australia’s sunniest capital city and occupies the same time zone as 60% of the world’s population (GMT+8) and has a current population of just over 2 million.
2018 Festival ScentEach year our Festival has something for all of your senses
In 2018 the Perth Festival Scent is Damask Rose.
Iranian migrant Mahin Nowbakht has inspired this year’s scent with her precious donation of a bottle of rosewater to our Museum of Water. Mahin arrived with rosewater and Damask Rose petals when she migrated to Perth 14 years ago and it speaks profoundly of the connection that this ancient flower gives to her homeland and culture. ‘Rosewater is like holy water to me,’ she said. ‘Its scent makes me feel calm and at peace.’
Since ancient times, roses have been used medicinally, nutritionally, and as a source of perfume. As our 2018 Festival Scent, Damask Rose told a story of our multicultural community and was a gift between cultures that was infused in venues, food and drinks across the city with our partners.
