Perth's geographical location makes it an ideal venue for the 2011 ISAF Sailing World Championships. Located close to Asia, Perth is the western gateway to Australia for both European and Asian visitors.
Perth's international and domestic airports are located 20-25 minutes from the CBD and about 40 minutes from the port city of Fremantle.
Our partner airline Qantas Airways flies international flights into and out of Perth International Airport as well as scheduled domestic flights to other Australian cities.
