EB and I decided that we would go on a quick adventure during our Easter break to Western Australia.
We decided to fly to Perth and have a quick peruse of the city after we had dropped our luggage off at the hostel (I say luggage loosely- my 4 outfits in a backpack hardly count).
Soon after we took a long stroll down to the River Swan where we witnessed the most beautiful sunset as we overlooked Elizabeth Quay.
Perth has some tremendous eateries and you will rarely be disappointed with the food there.
Getting around is pretty simple. You can pretty much walk everywhere in the city and getting a train from Perth to Fremantle, Cottesloe Beach and Scarborough Beach is fairly easy (It will be much cheaper than hiring a car)
Rottnest Island- This excursion was a real highlight. The company that we booked with picked us up at our hostel and dropped us off at the ferry port where we picked up our hired bikes and got straight onto the ferry. The ferry ride to Rottnest Island wasn’t too long and as soon as we arrived on the Island we were straight on our bikes for an 18km bicycle adventure.
The landscape and the views on the Island were really stunning and we even befriended some Quokkas which are a native animal only found on the Island.
Things to do:
Definitely walk the city to view the sunset
Go to Elizabeth Quay, see the Bell Tower and visit whichever market has arrived in the city (We did the Noodle Market)
Hike up to Kings Park and see the War Memorial and the views of the city
Go to Fremantle
Visit both Cottesloe and Scarborough Beach
Visit Rottnest Island
