5 days in Perth 11th to 16th August


We will be visiting Perth for 5 days.

Will appreciate if you could advise propose itinerary for self driving to places of interest that we will like to visit; Nambong National Park to see the Pinnacles, Fremantle, Hay Street, King Park.

We will also like to visit Curtin University.We have looked at web site www.airbnb.com on the various apartment available but could not decided on the area we should be looking at as our itinerary is not confirmed yet. We were quite drawn to the Como area as it is near the Swan river but would appreciate if we could be advised if this would be a good area for stopover for our travel to the other places of interest. Truly appreciate any suggestions.

Hi. Have a look through this forum as there has recently been similar questions to yours. Also check trip reports on top right hand side of the page as these give you some ideas.

What are your group's interests as that helps us tailor suggestions?

Como is a convenient location but as far as I am aware there is not direct access to the river if that's what you are after. You might find something in South Perth which suits- several lovely parks along the river foreshore. Also Perth City will give you access to the main sites. All these areas and even Fremantle are quite straight drive to Curtin Uni.

Hi Patric

Perth is not compact like Singapore. Perth city area or Fremantle are both closer to popular attractions and may be more convenient even with your own vehicle, especially as your holiday is quite short.

Thank you Jean and Kerry for your tips and advise.

Guess renting a car direct from the airport is most viable option.

Any good recommendations to a good car rental company from the airport.

We are 4 adults with 4 cabin luggages.

All of the major car hire companies are at the airport. Use a site such as zoomzoomzoom to compare rates but book direct with your choice for the best deal in most cases.

I regularly used Avis from the airport in 2011 and 2012. Take photos of all panels before heading off just to be on the safe side. Some people take pictures of the interior too. Never had a problem.
