I will be in Perth (first time) with my husband and 2 young children for part of the Easter weekend next year. We arrive at Perth Domestic airport at 2pm on Thursday 17th after spending 10 days on the Coral Coast. We leave for Brisbane at 9am on Saturday 19th so initially we had planned to stay in the CBD for the 2 nights. Then it dawned on us - our only full day will be Good Friday and I assume (like in Brisbane) everything will be closed.
So, do you recommend still staying close to/in the CBD and hoping we can find places to eat etc? Or, we have access to cheap car hire so we could hire a car from the airport on Thursday and drive somewhere nearby to stay the 2 nights (no more than 1.5 hours away) that is likely to be less deserted than the CBD on Good Friday?
Any suggestions or ideas would be greatly appreciated :)
