Did not find very much to see. Loved the ferry over and back. Thankfully was able to change my departure time to an earlier time. Staff on board very helpful.

Took a return cruise to Freemantle. The Swan river is beautiful with numerous sights along the way. The commentary on the boat is very Informative. The trip is a nice slow and relaxed cruise. Well worth a cruise when visiting Perth.
