Perth

That's a cool pic. The interesting thing about the Perth skyline is that it lacks depth. From overhead, you can see that all the tall buildings are lined up along a single street. I'm assuming that zoning regulations caused this, but I am not really sure.

The pic of Perth that Spartan posted is fairly up-to-date....

...however what Allan has elluded to is not quite right. The Perth CBD is quite long yet is already busting @ the seams and certainly doesn't run just along one or even two streets.

I'll post some overhead pics of Perth in a seperate thread.

The reason behind perths linear skyline is becuase the tower's started towards the river and got larger and further from the river as they went up, the boom ended and many of our more coragous buiness men settled down safley.

Added to the fact we knocked down half of perths heritage and most of the better stuff, we brang in and still have tight controls on heritage but there is still moves to develop modern skyscrapers with art deco faccads.

Also, Perth is just outside the desert climate zone,

and is in the Subtropical zone.

First, Perth has a poupulation of 1.5 million

and the 5th largest city in

Australia, and one more thing,

this is my 3rd favorite place.

Nice photos, thanks. I didn't realize that Perth was this big.
