What You Can Expect

Perth Hop-On Hop-Off Bus Tour

Perth Hop-On Hop-Off Bus Tour

You’ll board the double-decker Hop-On Hop-Off bus at any of its 11 stops and start your tour of Western Australia’s bustling capital. The recorded commentary will provide insightful information on the sights you pass as you go along.

Highlights include the Victorian Gothic architecture of Perth's Town Hall, Australia’s only convict-built capital city town hall. Nearby you’ll find the shopping malls on Hay and Murray streets. Continue on for a glimpse of Australia’s cultural riches at the Perth Cultural Centre, the Museum of Western Australia, the Art Gallery and the Heath Ledger Theatre – named after the late actor who was from Perth.

Be sure to save time for a visit to Kings Park, where you get excellent views of the Perth skyline and Swan River. The enormous park is one of Perth’s jewels, with picnic areas, walking trails, and an impressive botanic garden. More than 3,000 species of indigenous plants, including many of Western Australia's famous wildflowers, are growing in the extensive Kings Park and Botanic Gardens.

The complete hop-on hop-off circuit takes about two hours to complete, and you can get off the bus at any of the stops to explore in depth. You’ll have a minimum of 24 hours on your ticket, and your ticket gives you discounts at many of Perth’s top attractions. See Itinerary below for more details on the passes you can choose from.

You get to hop on and off at your leisure.

After enjoying time in Fremantle, you’ll return to the dock at 3:45pm to catch your boat back to Perth. If you have more than one day, you can explore Perth and take the Swan River boat cruise to Fremantle another day (please note: it does not need to be on consecutive days).

We did the swan valley and bus trip, due to flight delay we missed the boat we'd booked on but the staff were really helpful and got us on the next one and contacted the bus for us so it all ran smoothly, well worth doing both trips made even better by lovely staff

Thoroughly enjoyed playing tourist in my home city. What a pity about Barrack Street Jetty being such an upheaval, though.The works are said to be finished in a few weeks - I bought 2 hats to eat Can I suggest more talk of historical buildings within the city? The talk of local fame included only 1 woman......could we include Professors Neville and Fiona Stanley to your commentory please? They have acheived much!!!!! Kings Park in full bloom....magnificent. Could you extend your tour to South Perth as much Aboriginal Hx there? All in all a good tour with room for more. Big thanks to our tour guide...he tried to take us home with him. Thanks so much for a very professional local service and well done Perth.

The deluxe pass is the way to go which includes the cruise with Captain Cook Cruises return to Fremantle, The hop on- hop off tram in Fremantle, the Prison tour, fish'n'chips for lunch and then the next two days you can use the Hop on-Hop off bus in Perth city. A great way to explore two locations with hassles.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

Perth hop on/off was excellent , bar one incident where the driver took a shortcut and missed the scheduled stop where we were waiting. This cost us a valuable hour off site seeing.. We reported it to the next driver. Freemantle hop on/off was superb due to the friendly and outgoing nature of Ross our driver host, a mine of information. certainly the nature of the tram versus the double decker bus made the trip more intimate and the vehicle was quieter allowing more interface with the driver..
