The real reason is probably the excessively high cost of accomodation,dining and almost everthing else. The costs in Perth are almost double the most expensive European cities - once considered the maost expensive in the world - no longer Australia now has that dubious reputation. Apart from that the location and remoteness do not encourage tourism. Not much to see and you pay a fortune.
