Hertz car through the Fremantle Visitor Centre

Fremantle Visitor Centre offers a possibility to hire cars with special rates, only available when booking direct with them. We decided to rent our car from Hertz, because they had an almost custom made offer for us:
- unlimited km’s
- CDW excess reduced
- all taxes and fees included
- free airport drop off
- their Fremantle office was opened on a Saturday morning.

We had to pay just AUD 56,- per day for a Toyota Corolla.

Be aware: we could drop off our car at Perth International Airport, but there is NO petrol station on the airport. We had to buy our last petrol in one of the suburbs of Perth.

Great bus services

TransPerth runs numerous buses servicing both Fremantle and Perth, to and from suburbs, surrounding towns, beaches and the Domestic Terminal of Perth Airport. There are many different lines and it is impossible to mention all the schedules, fares and possibilities of this great bus service.

We used the bus a couple of times: to/from Perth City (the Esplanade Bus Station) and to/from Fremantle. We paid for a so called “2 zone ticket” to Perth AUD 3,10 per person, which allowed us to use all buses in these two zones for 2 hours.

CAT buses
CAT (Central Area Transit) services in Fremantle and Perth are free. They can be very easy to reach touristy sights or the city centre of Fremantle when having accommodation outside the centre.
Perth has three circle lines and Fremantle (being much smaller) just one.

domestic flight - Fremantle

domestic flight

Perth Airport

We arrived from Uluru at the Domestic Terminal and left for Singapore from the International Terminal of Perth Airport. There is really a huge distance between these two terminals. One should be aware, specially when coming to Australia from abroad and having a connecting domestic flight.
All customs (passport and luggage) and Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service will be handled in the International Terminal. Sometimes both checks can be very time consuming; added by the transfer by shuttle bus between the terminals one need really much time in Perth Airport.

To/from
Perth Airport is located about 15 km’s outside the city of Perth and about 30 km’s from Fremantle. Both terminals are serviced by taxis and shuttle buses to/from accommodations in both Perth and Fremantle.

We had a taxi to our accommodation in Applecross for about AUD 35,-. Shuttle buses to Perth/Fremantle are about AUD 15,- per person.

There is also a public bus running between the city centre of Perth and (only !!) the Domestic Terminal.
