This tour is an eye opener for everyone. Tour the highlights of Perth then travel to Fremantle, an historic seaside town of convict history, glorious alfresco outdoor dining. This half day tour is a fantastic tour taking in Perth, Fremantle and Cottesloe Beach giving you a great insight into the city and the alfresco lifestyle Perth people enjoy, including a Swan River Cruise from Fremantle back to Perth.
Perth is populated with modern ocean racing yachts, terraced houses, museums and galleries set between the Indian Ocean and the Swan River.
Starting in Perth city, the tour passes the WA Cricket Association ground at East Perth and the Venice-like harbourside development at Claisebrook. We move past the historic Royal Mint to the beautiful Kings Park botanical gardens, while here you can walk through the tree canopies on the Tree Top Walkway giving a birdseye view of Perth's city skyline. Take a look at one of North West Australia's most famous landmarks, the 750-year-old Boab Tree, similar to a tree once used as a prison.
Later, we continue to one of Perth's best beaches Cottesloe Beach before arriving at the historic port town of Fremantle. An optional diversion to the Fishing Boat Harbour and Bathers Beach shows where the first settlers landed.
Back at the 'Cappucino Strip' time is allowed for a walk down the main street, enjoy a coffee at one of the many cafes or perhaps find a bargain at the markets (Friday, Saturday and Sunday only). Part with the group here if you wish to explore other famous attractions. Make sure you take in the Maritime Museum, Fremantle Jail (own expense) or the E Shed Markets.
Finally, join the Swan River Cruise and cruise back along the Swan River from Fremantle to Perth.
