At a loose end during your stay? Here are our recommendations for the best day trips in Perth.
Just a thirty minute journey from the centre of Perth lies Fremantle, a bustling port city situated at the mouth of the Swan River. Meander through the markets; immerse yourself in Fremantle’s history with a relaxing tram ride through the city, or journey to the Fishing Boat Harbour and indulge in fresh fish & chips. Strapped for cash? If you’re on a budget, why not rent a bicycle to explore, pack a picnic and finishing off your day with a cold beer on the harbour?
