If you're wondering what to do with some spare time in Perth I recommend a cruise along the Swan River from Perth to Fremantle. It's very relaxing if you enjoy the water and especially great in summer. The cruises are easy to catch from the Barrack Street Jetty. Nearby are the Bell Towers and Elizabeth Quays and quaint harbour-side shops.

While recently staying in Perth for a few days, we decided to do the Perth/Freo/Perth afternoon cruise. The boat was very clean and well-maintained, and the staff were all very friendly. We were on the upper deck, as we were doing the cruise without lunch. At the start of the cruise, one of the staff came around and took drinks... More

Lovely few hours spent cruising down to Fremantle... lunch on return journey was really nice and plentiful with one beverage included in the price... The only negative thing I would say is that be aware that they CAN and WILL cancel your cruise giving only 24hours notice if numbers are low..this is unfortunate if like me you have taken time...

Amazing Swan River cruise from Perth to Fremantle. Excellent real time commentary giving anecdotes and describing landmarks along the way. Incredible riverfront properties! Fremantle tram/bus tour was conducted by a very warm, enthusiastic and knowledgable gentleman who despite having an incredibly rude and obnoxious group on board try and drown out his commentary, he dealt with them with aplomb. Still... More
