Perth (Barrack Street) Ferry Port
Situated on the south west coast of Australia, bordering the Indian Ocean, Perth is considerably the largest city in Western Australia. The only ferry route departing the port is to Rottnest Island with Rottnest Express, lasting just under two hours.
What is there to do in Perth?
Perth is one of the most visited cities in Australia and for good reason. Not only does it exude an effortlessly cool vibe with the myriad of trendy bars and chilled restaurants, there is the added bonus of the beautiful beaches that decorate the coastline. All of the beaches are ideal for whiling away a few hours under the notoriously powerful Australian sun, though Cottesloe Beach is a particular favourite due to the gloriously green surroundings and azure blue waters. For those that prefer to spend their time away from the shores, Kings Park and Botanic Gardens boast some of the best scenery in Western Australia.
Part of Perth’s charm lies in its adversity; the numerous districts offer varying styles of architecture and the abundance of amenities lend themselves to a whole day exploring the outskirts of the city. Whilst in the city centre, it is worthwhile heading to the array of museums that line the spacious streets, or to indulge in some culture, embracing the local art scene at the selection of galleries. After exploring the city and travelling to the port, allow for some time to wander around the historic harbour.
How do you get around Perth?
Due to the extremely large land mass of Perth, there are copious bus, tram and train services in operation around the city. There is also a free tram that runs to certain areas. Obviously there are many road links should you be looking into the possibility of hiring a car.
