Perth Cruise Port

Posted on Wednesday, April 11, 2012 |
The Port of Perth, and its cruise terminal, is actually located in the neighbouring and much smaller city of Fremantle. The trip into Perth's city centre is only 30 minutes. The quickest way is by train from Fremantle's stunning Victorian-era railway station.

The city of Perth is located on the Swan River, 20km inland from the coastline where Western Australia meets the Indian Ocean. It stands alone on the west coast, and is one of the most remote cities on the planet- its nearest decent-sized neighbour being Darwin over 2,000 kilometres away. The Swan River foreshore is a great place for strolling and stopping at a cafe, and Perth is a well-laid out city so you can explore museums, shops and gardens with ease.

 Out on the coast, Cottesloe Beach is a favourite spot for swimming and sunbathing, or you could take a boat trip out to Rottnest Island. The nature-lovers will find plenty to do in Perth. Midgegooroo National Park is close to the city, and Lake Monger 10 minutes away is a hotspot for bird watching. For great views of the city and river, climb the DNA Tower in King's Park.
