I'll be visiting Perth this coming November with my family. We have 4 adults and 3 kids and are deciding whether to find an apartment near to the Hays Street Mall and Northbridge, or to hire a car.
1) Is parking near Hays Street Mall and Northbridge difficult and expensive ?
2) Any inexpensive hotel/apartment in that area to recommend? (preferably with kitchenette to prepare meals for the kids)
3) We are thinking of going on an one day "Fremantle, wildlife park and cruise" tour. However, joining a tour group may be a bit too expensive for 7 of us. Will it be easier and cheaper for us to rent a car and "DIY"?
