The audio file provides an interview with world renowned travel author, Bill Bryson, on 6PR's morning radio program with Steve Mills and Basil Zempilas on Thursday, 13 March 2014. In the interview, they discuss Mr Bryson's current visit to Perth as part of his live show tour around Australia and he enthusiastically describes what a wonderful place Western Australia is.

In particular, he says 'Kings Park is the best city park in the world' and that many local people don't seem to appreciate just how special it is. He says it is the best thing about Perth.
