Top attractions in Perth
Perth in western Australia is set along the Swan River and the Indian Ocean and it gets more sunshine than any other city in Australia so it is the perfect place for being outdoors. Take a walking tour for sightseeing in the city that the mining boons created. Hear stories about pioneers and events that shaped the city. Explore beautiful gardens and see the Swan River. You'll even discover the best bars in town.
Take a combined coach tour and river cruise and see Kings Park, Cottesloe Beach, the Western Australia cricket ground, and the Perth Mint. While cruising down the river, you can enjoy the architecture and views along the Swan River including the Swan Bell Tower.
On a walking tour of historic Fremantle, the port city of Perth, you'll see the scenic town with its dock and warehouses. But a good guide can bring to life the stories of the Aborigines and outlaws who pasted through this port. Art galleries and museums display local art.
You can see the natural side of Fremantle at one of the beaches or by taking a bushwalk in the city park. For snorkeling go to Rottnest Island with its reef to see the underwater wildlife.
What people are saying about Perth
Plenty of good things to see, to learn and too wonder over. Voice of Capt and speaker system could be louder , especially if sitting near the throb of the engine det. . More speakers and bigger volume is my suggestion. Lunch was great and the crew were chirpy . Bus or trolley tour of Freo could have been longer and more stops . I would judge twice as long to cover all the points of interest and the incredible sights . Not being from WA , could you put a Peir 3 sign in big letters for booking in area pre cruise . Luckily one staff member asked me if I was lost and I was . So some bigger and strategic signage in amongst all the other several signs there now.
The only problem I had was finding where the tour started from. The Section D sign was covered up by tents and marquees. From the car park there was no signage where to find the area to assemble. When I asked where to go they directed me to the Rebel Sales Van at Section A. There was no clear Rebel signage where they were selling the Manchester United gear.
Booking online was easy but GYG didn’t respond to my pick up request so i called Rottnest Express who suggested parking at Fremantle C Shed for $10 for all day which worked out well. The ferry was fine, the bikes were all quite old but it was great fun going round the island all day. Plenty to see and do. All in all a great day out and well worth it.
Rory the guide gave fun, informative commentary as we made our way to and from Claisebrook Cove. A sparkling sunny day was enhanced by the quiet operation of rhe solar powered ferry, a bijou little craft that gave a very comfy ride. A wonderful way to see Perth from the water! Highly recommmended.
Nothing too much trouble for guides Gav or Nat. Transport fine and all visits very worthwhile and interesting particularly the Pinnacles. Amazing sunset and truly memorable dinner under the stars. Comfortable journey both ways and the sandboarding an absolute blast!
