Suggested 2-Day Schedule:
Perth Explorer Tour:
As you'll be exchanging your ticket voucher with the Perth Explorer staff, we suggest spending the first day exploring Perth and Kings Park aboard their hop-on hop-off sightseeing buses. This service is valid for 48-hours and features 12 stops throughout the state capital. See here for more helpful information on planning your journey.
Cruise & Fremantle Trams:
The second portion of the tour can be done on any other day that suits you (up to 2 weeks after your first activity). With so much to see and do it's a little more structured than the first, but is guaranteed to be just as memorable.
It begins at 09:55 on the Barrack Street Jetty, where you'll catch a Captain Cook Cruises sightseeing boat down to Fremantle. Fremantle is historical port city founded in 1829 at the mouth of the Swan River. Your journey towards its scenic shores will take in a significant portion of this beautiful waterway before ending up on the Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour.
At the harbour you'll be met by an old-fashioned Fremantle Tram that ferries passengers onto Fremantle Prison. Here you'll be given an exciting guided tour that illustrates the history of the building in vivid detail and recounts fascinating stories by past inmates. As Australia's only UNESCO listed building a visit to Fremantle Prison is currently a one-of-a-kind experience, and is even rated by TripAdvisor as one of Australia’s top 10 attractions.
Fish 'n' Chips:
Once you've completed your prison tour climb back aboard the trams for a leisurely trip through Fremantle that culminates in a return to the Fishing Boat Harbour. At this point you'll be treated to a delicious lunch at Cicerello's fish ’n’ chip restaurant, a famous venue with rustic looks wonderfully complimented by seaside scenery.
Free Time & Return To Perth:
After lunch you'll have free time to explore Fremantle on your own, whether it's to experience another attraction, do a bit of souvenir shopping, or just absorb the local atmosphere.
Be sure to return to the cruise berthing point for 15:45, at which point you'll leave Fremantle for the return journey to Perth. Expect to arrive back at Barrack Street Jetty for around 17:00.
