Get a great introduction to Western Australia’s capital city on a packed, half-day sightseeing tour. After morning pickup at your hotel or a central meeting point, head to the lovely Kings Park Botanic Gardens for panoramic views of the cityscape. Stroll along the elevated Treetop Walkway for a glimpse of downtown skyscrapers peeking above the leafy canopy, and marvel at a 750-year-old baobab tree relocated here from the Outback.
Continue on by air-conditioned coach for a narrated sightseeing tour through central Perth. Listen to your guide’s onboard commentary as you drive past highlights including St Georges Terrace, historic Town Hall, the WACA cricket ground and an iconic riverside bell tower.
Next, head to the coast and enjoy a sandy stroll along famed Cottesloe Beach. Continue south across the Swan River to the historic seaport of Freemantle, where many original buildings were constructed by convicts in the 1880s. Admire the colonial landmarks and — if visiting on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday — browse community markets to pick up fresh local produce or unique knickknacks.
Midday, return to Perth’s Barrack Street Jetty via coach. Alternatively, upgrade to take a leisurely return cruise along the Swan River.
