The sunniest capital city in the world
“I love a sunburnt country,
A land of sweeping plains,
Of ragged mountain ranges,
Of droughts and flooding rains.
I love her far horizons,
I love her jewel-sea,
Her beauty and her terror –
The wide brown land for me!”
– Dorothea Mackellar
The city of Perth, located on Australia’s western coast, can lay claim to being the sunniest capital city in the world, with an average of eight hours of sunshine on any given day. Add to that the fact that the city has access to 12,500 km of coastline and 19 breathtaking beaches from Fremantle to Trigg, and all that sunshine certainly doesn’t go to waste.
Despite being the most isolated capital city in the world – Jakarta and Singapore are closer to Perth than Australia’s capital, Canberra – the Sandgropers of this Western Australian city also form a part of the city with the highest per capita number of self-made millionaires in the world. This is largely thanks to the region’s thriving mining industry: The Kalgoorlie mine is the world’s biggest producer of gold, Broom produces the most pearls in the world, and the Argyle mine is the world’s largest producer of diamonds.
