Living in Perth

With the magnificent Swan River gently meandering its way from rolling eucalypt covered hills to the sparkling Indian Ocean, the city is blessed with enormous natural beauty.  All this, and low rental, quality accommodation makes Perth the preferred place of study for thousands of overseas students every year.

For the outdoor types Perth is close to paradise!  From walks and picnics in stunning parklands to a casual round of golf at any one of a number of championship courses, from sailing on the Swan to swimming in the clear azure ocean; from water skiing to windsurfing or just plain relaxing, Perth is perfect.  Everything is so close to hand.  Even Margaret River, one of the world’s finest wine districts, is only a leisurely few hours drive south.

On the other hand, Perth is a whole lot more than just one of the world’s beautiful cities; it’s also a thriving business centre and Australia’s principal window to South-East Asia.

Right in the very heart of Perth’s Central Business district is the Australian School of Tourism and Hotel Management.  It’s just a hop, step and jump to the central bus and railway stations and city shopping.

Just five minutes away is Northbridge, the jewel of Perth’s night life.  With numerous sidewalk cafes, restaurants, live music venues, late night bars and nightclubs, not to mention the museum, art galleries and cinemas, Northbridge is a never ending play where the acts change everyday.

There can be no better place than Perth to study and at the same time enjoy such natural beauty combined with the rewards of the city’s relaxed lifestyle.


It is advisable to arrive in Perth at least one week before Orientation.  This provides students with enough time to settle into their accommodation and relax before the new Semester commences.

ASTHM is happy to arrange to meet students upon arrival at the Airport if required. New students must notify the International Office of their date, time of arrival and flight details at least two weeks before arrival.


ASTHM will arrange student accommodation upon request. Students requiring accommodation should advise the International Office at least 4 weeks before arrival and identify the type of accommodation required which may be either homestay or student hostel (off campus).

Cost of Living

The cost of living in Perth is generally lower than in other capital cities of Australia.  A student living in Perth should budget approximately $220-$250 per week for living expenses.
