Living in Australia

Beauty abounds.

Perrigo Australia is located in Balcatta, a suburb just 11 kilometers from Perth, which is the capital of Western Australia. Perth is the most isolated city in the world as it hugs Western Australia’s breathtaking coast north and south for 150 km, and extends only a few kilometers inland. Perth offers anything you could possibly need with big city amenities, ocean, hills, parks, gardens, a zoo and great quality of life for its 1.7 million residents.

Upgrades to the north and south freeway and new train lines make getting around easy, and people choose to live in the city, suburbs and in all types of dwellings to suit their style. Most apartment buildings in the city are fairly new and modern, and new houses are being built on the outer suburbs—about a 30-45 minute drive from Perth’s center.

Perth has a number of extremely good public, private, and boarding schools.

No matter the weather, there is always something to do in Perth. There are many different areas to visit with shopping, restaurants and recreational activities from indoor laser shooting and surfing to wine tours or art galleries. Kings Park and Botanical Gardens offers splendid views with walks, shops and cafes, the Perth Mint will give you a gold-rush experience, and the bell tower is home to one of the largest musical instruments in the world.
