Perth Hop-On Hop-Off Bus Tour
Start your Perth hop-on hop-off bus tour at any of the 11 stops, where you’ll board the double-decker bus for easy transportation around the city. Just hop off when you wish to check out the attractions that interest you, and when you’re on board, listen to recorded narration about the city’s major sights.
Perhaps admire the Victorian Gothic architecture of the Town Hall, go shopping on Hay Street or Murray Street in the central business district, or visit the Perth Cultural Centre, the Museum of Western Australia or the Heath Ledger Theatre, named in honor of the late actor and native Perthite. Don’t miss Kings Park, the city’s crown jewel that boats a lovely view of the Swan River and downtown skyline. At the Botanic Gardens, you can wander past 3,000 species of plants, including Western Australia wildflowers.
The full tour loop lasts about two hours if you don’t get off the bus. When booking, select either a 24- or 48-hour ticket to suit your schedule; during your valid time period, you may use your ticket for discounts at several attractions around the city.
You also have other tour options you may choose from to enhance your hop-on hop-off experience. See the Itinerary section for details about the Triple Pass, which includes a boat cruise on the Swan River to Fremantle, WA’s historical port city just across the river from Perth, as well as a Fremantle hop-on hop-off tram tour. Or, perhaps upgrade to the Deluxe Pass, which includes the above plus admission to the UNESCO World Heritage–listed Fremantle Prison and lunch at Fremantle’s bustling Fishing Boat Harbour.
