So visit Perth and experience it for yourself.
The vibrant city of Fremantle blends the old with the new, creating an enriching cultural experience. Maritime, convict and colonial history can be explored in one of the best preserved examples of a 19th century port streetscape on Earth, while buzzing markets, lively bars and casual street cafés give you a taste of 21st century life with the locals. Fremantle was recently announced as one of Lonely Planet’s Top 10 Cities to visit in 2016.
As Perth's neighbouring port town, Fremantle (or Freo as it's affectionately known) is just a 30-minute drive or train ride from the city. Or, you can hop on the ferry from Barrack Street for a leisurely cruise down the Swan River.
Perfect for a day or overnight visit, Rottnest Island is home to 63 beaches and 20 bays. Found just 19kms off the coast, it is a short ferry ride from Perth, Fremantle or Hillarys.
With no cars on the roads, riding is the best way to get around, with bicycle hire available at the ferry terminals and on the island. If that's too much effort, you can hop on and off the bus which regularly runs around the island, or book a guided tour. Enjoy lunch at one of the cafes and restaurants, most offering spectacular ocean views. Swim, snorkel or dive, or take an eco-cruise to immerse yourself in this water wonderland. And before you leave make sure you meet the world famous friendly quokka.
