Exploring Perth, Western Australia this year on Australia Day

  • Wave Rock
  • Rottnest Island
  • Monkey Mia Dolphins

 I had three days to spend in Perth, including Australia day hence I decided to take a tour for the first day (25th Jan) so that I still have two days to celebrate Australia day and checked out some local places for less money. As tours usually cost a lot in Australia hence every time you go somewhere try to mix tours and free attractions to make the most of your visit to that place.

 Other than the above attractions that takes a fair bit of drive (2 – 3 hours each), there are some local attractions/places that you should visit when you are in Perth.

  • Fremantle
  • Cottesloe beach
  • Northbridge
  • Kings Park

 Public transport: It can be difficult to get around quickly in Perth if you rely on the public transport too much but still the connectivity is good and it saves you some money if time is not an issue. If you are flying there then  there is a shuttle (bus number 37 ) that is free from airport but make sure you check the timetable for this bus as I arrived in Perth airport around 9:30 and by the time I checked out I was told that the shuttle doesn’t run after certain time. So I wasn’t able to use this facility but see if your timing are appropriate to take this shuttle to city and then make your way from there.

Well ma be you guys would know it by now that if I am on the road then nothing less than adventure really suits my life and my travelling style so I can’t complain 🙂
