Perth Travellers Tales
We stayed 4 nights in the Seashells, then drove down to Yallingup/Margaret River. We loved Perth with its beautiful Kings Park and River. Gorgeous City!
A new rail link from Mandurah to the city is being built and there will be some traffic disruption while this work is in progress. While in Perth I also visited Kalbarri in the north; a very quiet and peaceful holiday resort,a place where you can really get away from it all. It is popular for fishing and sightseeing in the Kalbarri National Park. A trip well worth making.<br> <br> Service in restaurants can be poor at times, but one I would recommend is The Greek on James Street in Northbridge where you will find a Greek nouvelle cuisine type of eating. If you are staying in Perth for at least a week it is worth buying a MultiRider ticket for travel on buses and trains, available for 10 or 40 trips. This card is due to be replaced later this year by a SmartRider card which can be topped up with extra funds direct from your bank account or, I believe, by additional cash payments at the TransPerth travel offices. I found public transport safe and reliable, and used it mainly for travelling to the beach at Swanbourne (30 minutes by bus from Perth city centre) which is also the local nudist beach.
We visited Albany and stayed in Perth on the way down. The south coastline is really incredible and well worth a visit.
We were only in Perth 1 night so it is difficult to comment. The city of Perth was pretty dead. Kings Park was fantastic with all the wild flowers. Margaret River was our main destination, and that was superb.
I walked around the area. Great shopping and all the restaurants were good if expensive. I especially thought Miss Maud''s was good value for the money...try the buffet! Many shops, good value on hiking boots.
For wildflowers in early spring go north. The southern route didn''t have many in early September. Albany was a very interesting city to visit, Margaret River less so in our opinion.
Perth is a beautiful city, but Fremantle is one of the world''s undiscovered gems. Do not miss it! The outback is a must to visit, but make sure that your car is in good order. Driving from Albany to Lake Grace one evening, we encountered only one other vehicle in over 150 miles! If anything goes wrong, there''s not a lot of help out there!
We have taken 2 local tours, it was excellent. During the short stay in Perth, we managed to visit the countryside farms and went to New Norcia Monk Monastery. It was a beautiful place. We have also visited the wildlife park, chocolate factory, winery, swan valley, aboriginal culture centre, few beaches (surprise to see many surfers even during winter) and kings park; basically travelling around Perth. We took train down to Fremantle Market on sunday afternoon; it was an extraordinary place.
Catch the blue CAT bus to orientate yourself to the city; it goes from just around the corner. And take a boat trip down to Freemantle - it''s a fascinating place. Ferries depart from a jetty just across from the hotel.
Eat well before 10pm, as everything is closed after that.
