The San Diego-Perth (Capital of Western Australia) Sister City Society began 31 years ago with members of San Diego traveling to Perth for the “America’s Cup” yacht races.
Lifelong friendships were built during this time. The City of San Diego and the City of Perth entered into a relationship to forge bonds between them.
We are a non-profit organization under the umbrella of Sandisca www.sandisca.org .
We are an energetic group of Australian and non-Australian members aiding and assisting exchanges between our two cities.
