City Layout
The city center is 19km (12 miles) upriver from the Indian Ocean, on the north bank of a broad reach of the Swan River. Four long avenues run east-west between riverside parkland and the railway reserve. St. Georges Terrace (it becomes Adelaide Terrace at Victoria Ave.) is the main thoroughfare and commercial and banking address, while Hay Street and Murray Street are the major retail avenues with pedestrian malls in the central blocks. Arcades link all three, plus Wellington Street, which has Perth's suburban railway station on its northern side.

Of the many free pocket guides to Perth available at tour desks and in hotel lobbies, Your Guide to Perth & Fremantle (Countrywide Publications) has the best street map. It shows one-way streets, public toilets and telephones, taxi stands, post offices, police stations, and street numbers, as well as most attractions and hotels. The Royal Automobile Club of Western Australia is a good source of maps to the state, as is The Perth Map Centre, 900 Hay St. (tel. 08/9322 5733). You will find tourist maps at the Western Australian Visitor Centre and the Perth Tourist Lounge.
