The four of us took a 1hr 15min river cruise (one-way) to Freo and back to Perth. At Elizabeth Quay, Cpt Cooks' Cruises cost A$40 each, was worth it taking in the sights. Three such cruises per day at 9.45am, 11.15am and 2.45pm.

Both Perth Harbour and the boat trip to Freo, as it is known are fabulous. Very dramatic and colourful. Well with a day or two exploring both.

We sailed on the river from Perth to Freemantle. Made the whole Freemantle trip worth the tour. The river tour was the best part of that day!

Air con is the norm. Aug is usuallywet and cool
Infants travel free, there are lovely eating places at both sides of the river. The one in South Perth is superb. The ferry goes from Barrack Street. The Esplanade train station is the nearest station
