On the Road

Perth - Adelaide - [self drive] - Melbourne

Enjoy the freedom of the open road with this great Aussie roadtrip between two fantastic cities. Then finish your two week holiday in laid back Perth.



Day 1 - 4

Fremantle, Western Australia


Fly to Perth on the west coast for a very chilled start to your Aussie holiday. Enjoy some laid back shopping, take a river cruise, play cricket on the beach and eat the local seafood. Make time to do a day trip to Rottnest Island, enjoying the stunning scenery on foot, by bike, or from the comfort of a beach towel on the sand!

Also try and squeeze in a day at Fremantle. Just a 20 minute drive from Perth's city centre, Freo (as it is known by the locals) is a vibrant port town that has real charm. Essential stops there include WA's earliest convict jail, the WA Maritime Museum and the bustling Fremantle Markets. Stop for a pint at a heritage pub to watch the buskers and amble along the back streets past dockworkers' cottages, warehouses converted into trendy apartments and off-the-beaten track local haunts. Most of all, Freo is about soaking up the laid-back atmosphere. Kick back and enjoy the view as the sun sets over the ocean.

Perth highlights include:

  • Shopping, restaurants and nightlife in the suburbs of Subiaco, Northbridge and Mt Lawley

  • Relaxing on the Swan River foreshore with its grassy areas, walkways and barbeque facilities

  • A day trip to the wineries of the Swan Valley

  • Time spent enjoying the markets, cafes and people watching in Fremantle

  • A helicopter trip over the city for stunning views and a real thrill
