Perth is the only Australian city that made it into the Forbes Travel Guide’s 14 Top Destinations of 2019, alongside Amsterdam, Paris and Istanbul. To be considered visit-worthy by Forbes, a city needs to be experiencing a ‘moment’ and shift in the way it looks and feels. Perth is currently undergoing rapid transformation with the opening of Yagan Square, Optus Stadium, expansion of Elizabeth Quay, and the introduction of a new foodie festival, the Western Australia Gourmet Escape. This hybrid of development and activity has lead to Perth’s growing popularity among tourists, ahead of Melbourne and Sydney.
