What You Can Expect

Perth and Fremantle Tour with Optional Swan River Cruise

Cottesloe Beach

Be picked up from your Perth hotel, or join the tour at the Barrack Street Jetty overlooking the Swan River, then make your first stop on your Perth half-day tour at the stunning Kings Park Botanic Gardens. From this elevated vantage point you can see fabulous views of the Perth city skyline, and catch more glimpses above the tree canopy when you take a walk along the Tree Top Walkway. Keep a lookout for the 750-year-old baobab tree, relocated here from the central Australian desert.

Then board your air-conditioned coach and listen to onboard commentary as you take a tour of Perth’s city sights, including the legendary WACA cricket ground, the modernist bell tower next to the Swan River, the historic town hall and Perth’s grand main street, St Georges Terrace.

Your city tour then heads to the coast to visit Perth’s most famous stretch of sand, Cottesloe Beach, with its gently curving bay and elegant century-old hotel.

Heading south, follow the Stirling Highway over the Swan River to the historic port of Fremantle, where the river meets the sea. Admire the port’s prized collection of convict-built landmarks and heritage colonial-era buildings dating from the 1880s. If you’re visiting Fremantle on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday, you won’t want to miss a visit to the community markets, where you can browse for unique gifts and purchase locally grown produce.

Leaving Fremantle, return to Perth’s Barrack Street Jetty by air-conditioned coach. Alternatively, upgrade your tour to return to the jetty on a Swan River cruise, which allows you to admire Perth’s waterfront homes and other river sights.

My husband I were visiting several places in Australia and decided to take the Perth City and Fremantle Tour with a Cruise down the Swan River, in order to see as many of the sights possible in a short time. We were picked up at one of the Hotels near to where we were staying, and then taken by Coach to Perth Harbour, where some people transferred to other Coaches, dependant on which Tour they were taking. The only hitch was that 2 ladies (in there 90's) had not transferred to the correct coach at the Harbour and we had to pull in and wait for another Coach to come and pick them up. Once this was dealt with, the Tour commenced without any further problems. The Driver/Tour Guide who was in his 70's, was very informative and entertaining. His driving was smooth and safe and he knew his route well. After seeing Perth we proceeded by road to Freemantle, which is a lovely Town, smaller in scale than Perth, with a great atmosphere and easy to get around. After a Tour of Freemantle, with the Driver pointing out various buildings and advising of their history, We stopped at a bus stop were we were issued with our Cruise Tickets.. There were 3 sailings that day. The Driver advised, that he would leave us to have a look around Freemantle for an hour then pick us up to take us to the Port, or we could stay in Freemantle longer and take a later Cruise, but we would have to get to the Port by ourselves. We decided to have a little longer and had lunch in one of the many cafe's and also took a long walk along the Port, which has more cafe's shops and also Micro Breweries, before boarding our Ferry to Perth. My only disappointment was that we took the Tour on a Monday and the town was a little quiet as the Markets only open Friday, Saturday and Sundays. Had we had visited on a Market Day, I feel it would have had a livelier atmosphere however, it did make it easier to be served, with no long waits for food.

A good starting point for any tourist. Great driver in Chris who dry humour was pleasant accompaniment to the commentary. Time in Freemantle is better if you opt for the cruise back which is worthy in itself, fine views of river and riverside properties, it also gives you time to talk with other people. Visit the Quay Inn situated near the ferry terminal in the "Sheds". Places visited were then picked for further exploration on another day-Kings park certainly a must to spend another day at.
