THE BEST HOTELS IN AUSTRALIA 2021COMO THE TREASURY, PERTHThis city was built on land that has been inhabited for millennia by the Whadjuk Noongar people, who observe six seasons, rather than the less nuanced European four. Perhaps the loveliest of these is djilba, the season of conception, which corresponds with the mass blooming that transforms much of Western Australia into the most magnificent display of wildflowers on earth. Or rather, they did, until The Treasury threw open its doors – of which there are no fewer than 11 at street level. The expansive ground and lower-ground floors house several of the best restaurants, cafés and bars in town – though those in the know take the lift to the roof for a table at the world-class Wildflower. The conversion was masterminded by the late Kerry Hill, a Perth-born architect famous for his work with Aman hotels.
