Sorry Sydney, this is Australia's best city

Finally putting an end to Sydney/Melbourne debate ... it's another city altogether.

Ending a decades long debate news.com.au has come out and said it – Perth is the Aussie city to beat.
Whether you want beaches, cafes or culture apparently the glorious Western Australian city of Perth has it all.
Unlike the famously crowded beaches of Sydney, Cottesloe always has space for another towel to take an evening dip as the sun sets over the ocean.
If dining is more your thing you can go low-key and fun at the Cottesloe Beach Hotel across the road from the beach, or treat yourself to something more substantial at The Shorehouse, a new and exciting beach styled restaurant with an al fresco deck and stunning views.
