Unless you are already in Australia, you will have to fly to Perth!
There are some international flights from London, Dubai, Hong Kong, Singapore, or Kuala Lumpur.
Concerning domestic flights, Qantas, Virgin Blue, and Jetstar offer direct flights from most of the major cities in Australia (Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide...).
You will arrive at Perth International Airport. This is the fastest way to travel and can be the cheapest if you are flexible on dates.
It takes about 30 minutes from the airport to the city center. A cab will cost you $40. A bus ticket will cost you less than AUD 5.
Finally, the train is less common. You can reach Perth from Sydney, Melbourne (via the Overland), or Adelaide by taking the Indian Pacific. However, it will take 4 days of travel from Sydney and you will have to pay about 1800 AUD$.
Perth's climate is very pleasant. Summers are hot and dry and winters are mild and wet. Daytime temperatures rarely fall below 15°C in any season.
Perth is, therefore, a very pleasant city to visit and live in all year round.
The climate here is the Mediterranean. During the hot and dry summers, every day is the same. The sky is clear and the temperatures exceed 30°. In winter, the air cools down and showers become more and more common. This weather, so common in Europe, is not so common here. Except for the north and its tropical climate, the rest of Western Australia is arid and desert. These climatic variations explain better the demographic disparities in this state.
