6D5N for 5 adults

Dear friendly experts of TA,

We are a family of 5 adults from Singapore and plan to visit Perth City, Swan Valley and Margaret River for our 6D5N trip. Appreciate your advise on the feasibility of our itinerary. Any suggestion/help is appreciated.

31 Dec (Tue) - Arrive at Perth 5.20am. Take a cab to Fraser Suites Perth. Pick up car at Bayswater Car Rental. Visit Kings Park/ Perth Mint/Swan Bells/Shopping/ New Year Eve activities. (Any advice where are the NYE activities?)

1 Jan (Wed) - Check out hotel. Drive to Swan Valley. Visit Chocolate Company, Cape Lavender, Mondo nougat, House of Honey.

Where should we stay at? Was thinking of The Limes at Toodyay but it seems far for a drive for next morning trip to MR winery tour at Voyager. Should we stopover for a night at Dunsborough? We are looking for a clean, decent hotel, not too expensive.

2 Jan (Thur) - Drive to Voyager Estate for winery and tour (which starts at 11am). Check in at Margaret River Hideaway & Farmstay. Dinner at Morries Anytime.

3 Jan (Fri) - Visit Cottage Cafe Berry Farm, Lake Cave. Stay at Margaret River Hideaway & Farmstay.

4 Jan (Sat) - Check out at Farm. Head back to Perth CBD. Return car at Bayswater. Check in at CBD Hotel. Visit Fremantle Markets via public transport.

5 Jan (Sun) - Free&Easy around City. Arrive at airport by cab at late night for flight at 1am.

Additional queries:

1) How many adults are allowed to board 1 cab/taxi in Perth CBD?

2) Are there any activities such as New Year Eve festival on 31st Dec?

3) Is Bayswater Car Rental near Fraser Suites?

Thank you for taking time to read this. Look forward to all suggestions/feedback!

Perth puts on a spectacular display of fire works over the river and the city buildings, but for you unfortunately it is for Australia Day at the end of January and not for New Years eve.

You will find smaller displays around Perth on new year... Mandurah, Rockingham and generally Crown Casino Burswood, This will be something you are better to check when you get here, or just prior. Your hotel should know, or check with the WA Visitor Centre in the city when you arrive.

The free CAT buses are only within a restricted area. Where exactly are you returning the car? If to Bayswater (the suburb) you will need to either take a series of buses/trains to get to Fremantle (for which you will have to pay) or a more straightforward taxi.

Then you will still need to take other public transport to get to Fremantle- the Perth CAT buses have a limited loop within Perth city only.

I'm curious- are you marilynong or butterpork? TripAdvisor rules permit one account per person only.
