Well I went there last summer and had a great time.
Spent my time visiting breweries:
Swan Brewery on the Perth riverfront
Little Creatures in Fremantle
Mad Monk Brwery in Fremantle
I would also recommend going to Rottnest if you have time and money. It is a nice place to relax and very beautiful. over 10 years ago
A must is to take a ferry ride from Perth (Barrack St. jetty) to Fremantle. It takes about an hour and costs roughly A$18 per person. Whilst there have a great fish and chip lunch on the Wharf, the best you may ever taste! and then wander around the centre, a ten minute walk away to admire the lovely architechture.
There is a free bus you can get on and ride all around the town in a circle to see the sights.It is called the CAT bus. Get the train back to Perth, the station is only a few minutes walk from the centre of town.
Fremantle has an old prison which has tours several times a day and is very interesting. One of the stops on the free CAT bus stops very near.
Hope you enjoy! over 10 years ago
If I had 4 days in Perth, I would spend one day on Rottnest Island - 45 min fast ferry from either Fremantle or Sorrento Quay, then relaxation... no cars allowed, only push bikes or the bus. It's full of lovely bays and beaches with a couple of laid back townsites for basic shopping. Another day would be in Fremantle. As much history as Perth can offer with great market at the weekend. Casual dining on the cafe strip or various other hidden gems. Sorrento Quay (also known as Hillarys Boat Harbour) is good for the aquarium and casual shopping and dining. Can get crowded at the weekend - it's 20 mins north of the City Centre. Then for the last day, I would take a stroll - through King's Park in the City or in one of the other National Parks nearby. If you head East, you could visit the Swan Valley (wineries and other gourmet treats) and go to a Wildlife Park if you're new to Australia. over 10 years ago
Kangaroos at dusk at Hierisson Island, Pinnaroo Park (Cemetary) or Neil Hawkins Park, Joondalup.
Shopping at Karrinyup, Whitfords or Joondalup.
