Thanks to all the experts on this board, I've managed to plan a last minute trip for me and our two kids, 6 yrs and 3 yrs, to join my Husband on a business trip! It's our first time to Australia so I'm v excited!
We leave tomorrow and will spend 4 nts at the Rydges CBD as that is where DH has his room booked and paid for by work (we upgraded it to a suite to fit 4 of us)
We will then spend 3 nts next weekend in a holiday rental in Fremantle before driving to Margaret River and staying at Burnside Organic Farm for 3 nts.
We don't yet have accomodation for the final night. We will either stay in MR for a 4th night (flight is Friday afternoon) or drive back to Perth to check out Swan Valley/Caversham Wildlife Park. (Caversham is a must see for the children)
My general plan for me and the kids in Perth includes:
King's Park and Sticky Beaks Cafe
Caversham (or maybe wait for Daddy)
Some Beach/waterfront time
Prison and markets
Hillary's amd Aquarium of WA
Fish & Chips and general meandering
Dunsborough Whale Watching
A chocolate factory (maybe)
Augusta and Cape Leeuwin (one full day) - or is this too far from Burnside for a day trip?
I'm not a fan of overscheduling holidays so we'll edit if necessary.
What do you experts think? Have I missed something?
Any tips for car hire companies in Perth who'll have car seats?
Me and the kids will use public transport while staying in CBD and pick up car on the day we move to Fremantle.
We would also like to meet up with some friends (who do not have kids) one evening. Are pubs and restaurants quite child friendly like in the UK?
Thanks all. So excited to get some fresh air and drink some good wine.
