About The Perth Explorer Bus Tour:

The Perth Explorer hop-on hop-off bus tour provides flexible transport between 11 stops in and around Perth's CBD. Once your printed voucher is redeemed by a member of staff you'll be issued with tickets that provide unlimited access to the buses at any point for up to 48-hours.

Discover top attractions at your own pace while enjoying live English commentary from the onboard guides. We'd highly recommend checking out the Gold Exhibition at the Perth Mint, or having a picnic at Kings Park Botanic Garden. Pre-book your tickets quickly and safely before starting your hassle-free tour aboard the open-top double-decker buses.

Tour Highlights:

Whether you're a solo traveller or a family of 6, the Perth Explorer sightseeing tour is the easiest way to get a comprehensive overview of the entire city. The buses initially depart from a terminal at Barrack Street Jetty, from which point they wind through the middle of the CBD towards East Perth. Before crossing the bridge to Crown Perth and Burswood Park you might want to stop off at the Perth Culture Centre (stop 3), which runs various art exhibitions, music and theatrical events, plus public gardens.

Crown Perth (stop 4) is one of the city's finest nightlife spots, with a casino, nightclub, hotels, bars, restaurants and more, all located within stunning natural surrounds. Bus stop 4 will also place you within easy walking distance of Burswood Park, a place renowned for its Heritage Trail. Stroll along this historical walking route and discover bronze sculptures of famous faces from Australia's past, such as Henry Camfield, Paddy Hannan and Dame Mary Durack.

When you're ready to head back to the CBD catch the next bus and be sure to make your next stop the Perth Mint. Its primary visitor attraction is the 'Gold Exhibition', during which you'll come face-to-face with Australia's largest gold nugget display, witness molten gold being cast into ingots, and even find out your own worth in gold using the mint's special scales.

Stops 6, 7 & 8 represent the very best of Perth's natural landscape. Traverse the Tree Top Walk at Kings Park, climb the windy DNA Tower in the Roe Gardens, and treat the kids to a fun day out at the Synergy Parkland, with its extensive recreation spaces. On the journey back to stop 1 you'll have a chance to hop off at the Water Town and William Street shopping districts.
