Some cool Perth travel ideas
Thinking of travelling to Perth? Well our amazing city is the capital city of Western Australia, an enormous state that takes up a third of Australia and is 3.5 times bigger than Texas. Blessed with a relaxed lifestyle, stunning nature, and friendly people, travel to Perth is a must for any visitor to Australia.
Originally not of any interest to the British, it was only when French and Dutch explorers started sniffing around that the English decided there should be a colony in the West of Australia. There are plenty of things to do in Perth, and none better than getting an orientation and feel for the city with the amazing knowledge of a local guide. They can also point out the other Perth sightseeing highlights.
Perth was born out of very different reasons from any other Australian city and developed in a very different manner. This has produced a city with a laid back, big town feel while actually being an economic powerhouse. Let us give you a couple of suggestions with some unique Perth day tour experience.
Our Perth tours take you to these places and share intriguing stories about the past, present and the future including what happened between the local Noongar People and the British during settlement, events during mining boom times that shaped the city and influential identities that left their mark.
Further to the historical and heritage stories, you will hear many quirky stories about people and places and see the city from a unique perspective. On this Perth day tour, discover the small bars that are popping up around the city and find out about local events in the city.
At the completion of our Perth tour, join us at Rosie O’Gradys Bar in the Northbridge Precinct which is known for its cultural diversity, restaurants and nightlife. Join your guide for a complimentary beer/wine/soft drink and chat about the city! A great Perth sightseeing experience.
Only a short drive from Perth is Fremantle, the port for the city of Perth, which is the capital city of Western Australia, an enormous state that takes up a third of Australia and is 3.5 times bigger than Texas. Originally not of any interest to the British, it was only when French and Dutch explorers started sniffing around that the English decided there should be a colony in the West of Australia. You can learn more about this on our Fremantle tours. This is a scenic and beautiful town, but with these stories, the place really comes to life!
Fremantle developed into the major port for Western Australia in the late 1890’s to service Perth and its surroundings and opened up a gateway to the world. Millions of migrants have come through the ports of Western Australia, and none more than through Fremantle itself. Major prisons were built and criminal undertones swept 'Freo' in its early days, later a submarine base in WWII and now a major tourist attraction with a funky vibe. Freemantle travel is now growing, and lots of things to do in Fremantle.
Our Freemantle tour starts when you join your local guide at the “Roundhouse” at 10.00am to depart on a walking tour that will take approx 2hr and cover 3km over flat land.
