Health and Safety
Perth, like most Australian cities, is considered extremely safe for residents and tourists alike. Residents are able to walk around freely at night; the city has adequate lighting in most places, 24/7 CCTV and also “push-to-talk” buttons that provide direct communication to local police.
More information about health and safety can be found on the Perth Government website.
