Perth is one of the largest cities in Australia. Much of the city, which the writer Bill Bryson named as being the most isolated city on earth, is located on the Swan Coastal Plain. There is so much to see that car hire in Perth is great for those wanting to explore the metropolis, as well as the fascinating countryside that surrounds it. The area was inhabited by the Whadjuk Noongar people for 40,000 years before European settlers arrived, and there’s plenty of history to discover by hiring a car in Perth and checking out the country.
