"As part of our flight/2 ngts..." Perth Things to Do Tip by DellyM

Perth Things to Do: 846 reviews and 1,466 photos

As part of our flight/2 ngts accommodation booking we bought a 'Highlights of Perth' package. This was a book of tickets which gave us a trip accross the Swan River to Freemantle and back, entrance to Underwater World and a guided bus tour around the city. As we were initially only in Perth for 2 nights, we saved the tickets to the end of our holiday as we knew we'd be back in Perth before our flight home. On top of this we decided to jump onto a helicopter flight over Perth and accross to Freemantle (flights were being sold from a company on the main Riverside Drive, adjacent to the Swan River).
I enjoyed all of these trips but my most enjoyable was the sail accross the river to Freemantle and back. On the return trip you are provided with free samples of wine and cheese. We got through quite a few glasses of very nice reds and I felt quite tipsy when we got off! The running comentary was very interesting and it was fascinating to see the 'millionaire row' houses which look onto the river.
The views, the information and the free wine of course!!

Directions: Tickets for the cruise accross the river can be obtained from various vendors on the Barrack Street Jetty. We sailed with Captain Cook Cruises.
