If you’re a fan of beaches, metropolitan shopping areas, port city views, and multicultural cuisine options, consider the coliving hub of Perth, Australia. Located in the territory of Western Australia, Perth offers many useful options for remote workers interested in coworking, coliving and the digital nomad life. Called the “City of Light” because its residents illuminated their homes and streets with light as a ‘hello’ to American astronaut John Glenn in both 1962 and 1998, Perth is regarded as a friendly city for tourists and those seeking short-term and long-term stays. Perthians enjoy a lot of quality time outdoors—their city is sunny most of the time and in fact, gets more sun than any other territory’s capital. This makes it ideal for the dog-friendly culture and outdoor dining. It’s a great place for digital nomads who enjoy working and socializing outside at restaurants. Perth is a large city, but easy to traverse thanks to its new city rail line.
