It's an Asian thing. All the Asian cities (Singapore, Hong Kong etc.) refer to CBD. In England you would say city or town centre to mean the same thing. I don't know when the Aussies adopted it, but when I was a kid, Perth City Centre was Perth City Centre.

I'm still in Canada and we would call it 'down town' or 'city center' it still makes sense though and now i'll be able to figure out the relation to the CBD to find a place to live. Thanks for your help
