First visit to Perth in September  (2 Answers)

I am planning my trip to Perth in September.

Please let me know if it will be good time for wine tours? Shall I do a DIY self drive tour or join a tour? Advice appreciated.

I plan to spend 6 days in the city (sightseeing mostly). This is a family trip with children (less than 5 years old) so I thought of Perth Zoo, Caversham Wildlife Park - please suggest what else would be good to see in the city / day excursion from city.

Thereafter a couple of us (adults) are planning to extend the trip for another 6 days and drive the Indian Ocean Drive / visit national parks. Please suggest an itenary.

Thank you very much! =)

Q   a VirtualTourist member asked a question · June 24, 2016

I will be going to Perth in early October and I would like to ask whether the wildflowers at Kings Park in Perth are really wild like ie whether the flowers are spread out all over a large area and not just cultivated in small bushes. Would I have to go further to other parks to see a larger profusion of wild flowers. Thank you.

A week to 10 days trip to Perth flying from Melbourne. First time to Perth for us.  (5 Answers)

Don't necessarily want to stay in the City, so would like some suggestions of a good place to stay for a couple in our early 70's, fit and healthy, not into extreme activities such as bushwalking, or water sports etc. but a beach or riverside resort would appeal. Always lovely to relax back with a wine looking at the water. Want to be able to see as much as we can of Perth and surrounds as well as some relaxation. Will hire a car for a few days as well as take advantage of public transport. So question is:

Where should we stay:
What attractions are in that area:
What other attractions are not too far away that we could visit either by car or public transport.
Any other tips you may have for first timers to Perth.

Thank you

Rottnest and Perth in the Winter (July)  (6 Answers)

Visiting Perth this month in a little over a week with my fiance and we'll be visiting Rotto but we would like to do some snorkeling. How is the water in terms of being rough or manageable during July? We hear there will be more marine life due to a southerly warm current that passes by Rotto.
Also on a more general note, we've never been to Perth in the winter so we've no idea to what extent do we need to prepare winter clothing. Any suggestions would be great, we have fleece jumpers and the sort. Would this be enough or should we pack something a little more heavy duty?
Any suggestions would be great. Thanks!!

4 girls on a budget to Perth  (5 Answers)

Hello, we are 4 bestfriends who will be traveling to Perth from Oct27-Nov5 (10days&9nights). We are on a tight budget. Our budgets are approx $1000 each. Or less.
We need advice/suggestions/ recommendations on:
-travel sequence & activities (as we will be staying for quite sometime, where should we go first, and what are some free or low cost activities we can do? We're planning to go to Rottnest..should we stay there for a night or 2??)

-accomodations ( we've searched online and through websites such as airbnb but we have problem finding the right locations for us to stay as we do not have our travel sequence planned out yet. We're also not sure to stay at one place the whole time we're there or change as we move along?)

-transportations (could you suggest the cheapest ways for us to go around perth while we move along from one place to another?)

We are really new at planning our own trips, your help would really help us a lot. Please & thank you :)

We will be going to Perth from 17th to 23rd May with our 33 month old daughter.
We love animals and would like to expose our daughter to all the animal-friendly places in Perth.
