The view from King’s Park is enchanting. The Swan River, a blue snake that winds its way to the Indian Ocean, runs down the middle of this immense city park. The centre of Perth is bristling with skyscrapers, a tangled forest of glass and concrete. Further away, amid palm trees and eucalypti, one’s gaze stretches over infinite rows of low, orderly houses. We could easily be in California.
