In two weeks time my wife and self will be making a flying visit to Perth. Arriving at the airport at 12.30pm and departing two days later, I know not long enough.
Our plans are, first afternoon walking tour of the city centre. Next day take the free red CAT bus from the hotel to stop 25 Ord Street. Alight and explore Kings Park, treetops walkway etc. Leave park at about 1pm and catch the free CAT bus to Perth Central Railway Station. Purchase two single tickets to Fremantle. Sight see Fremantle for an hour or so and then purchase two single tickets from Captains Cook Cruises and catch the boat back to Perth.
I think that this does mean missing out on Rottnest Island. My question are we wrong to do this, would Rottnest Island be a better bet than the park. Any suggestions would be most welcome
