I plan to drive from Perth to Broome and visit several spots: Pinnacle desert, Kalbarri NP, Monkey Mia and Shark Bay, Exmouth and coral bay, Karijini NP up to Broome where we plan to visit Cape leveque and Bungle Bungles on a guided tour
Just Wonder if that is possible with a campervan cause I'm not an expert in 4WD driving. I did mereenie loop road in 2011 but that was not difficult at all
Hi, I'll be heading to Perth at end of Dec for about 6-7 days. It'll be my first time there with my mum and I plan to recce UWA as well since I will most likely study there next year. UWA seems a drive away from the Perth CBD and from all the hotels I checked out save for Captain Stirling. I will probably only spend one day to visit UWA so is it more convenient to stay nearer Perth CBD area or in Nedlands/Crawley area? Will the area near UWA be more sleepy since its Summer hols? I saw a few affordable hotels like Sullivan's and Good earth and also saw some available self contained apartments around the Rosalie area and shenton park area. They are all a drive away from UWA but if they are more convenient in other ways then its probably a trade-off that is worth it. Which of these locations would be most convenient for shopping, eating and touring perth (getting to various attractions)? I think the airport connect bus drops in front of the doorstep for Sullivan's and Good earth and both include breakfast. I read somewhere that the Shenton park area is quite happening. Also there are shopping streets on Murray street, Hay street and Kings street? I would prefer to stay in a hotel/apartment where there would be delis or restaurants a short walk away so that finding lunch and dinner would be easy. Preferably with a grocery store nearby (coles or woolworths?) and shopping nearby would be great! I thought that for a first-timer, maybe having breakfast provided and having a convenient start and end point for ground tours would be easier because I'm not sure how convenient it is to find eateries in Perth and not sure how to use Transperth either.
But I've been checking out the ground tours and they are pretty expensive! Maybe because we are there during super peak period. Any suggestions on how to get to visit the attractions in perth at a more affordable price? and which attractions are better? Since we only have a few days, have to really narrow down the attractions we want to visit. I think we would prefer those food tasting journeys (chocolate factory, farm trip, nougat factory etc.) to the sightseeing ones although we wouldn't mind both! =D Is Rottnest island mostly for water sports?
Also, is there any fun place to be on New Year's Eve? It'll be my first time counting down to the new year outside Singapore.
Regarding safety, anything to watch out for? since its just us 2 ladies.
Any help will be very much appreciated!! Thanks in advance!=)

I planned to bring my two daughters to Perth this coming school holiday to visit Perth. It is our first time going there from Singapore. We planned to stayed there for 3 days. Is there any public transportation to city to and from the airport? And will the weather be too cold that it is a must to bring thick jackets?
Thanks in advance
Will be grateful for some help here. The itinerary we have planed is this, (end oct):
Hotham steam train
Dolphin discovery centre
should we visit Freo during weekdays because it would be less crowded and everything will still be open? I prefer swan valley to be kept for weekends as some places are closed on weekdays. Is it right?
What time latest should we be driving?
Now I am wondering if I should stay around Mandurah for one night so I could visit the peel zoo, or the mall, after enjoying the steam train, before heading to Bluehills in Harvey. Is it worth to make a stop in Mandurah?
I have a headache about the car, whilst I do not wish to drive in Freo, but I have to pick up car from Perth , so either I plan it with a night stay in Freo where I can rest the car, (then drive the next day straight to boshack), or , during my stay in Perth without a car , take train to and fro Freo. What would you do if you were me? I have a two small ones below age of 5 tagging along (hence so much farm and animal stuff).
Last, my flights in and out are midnight (good for families and on budget), Any accomodation you might know of Which have comfortable lounges they don't mind us lying our boy down for his nap after check out on departure day?
Many thanks in advance,!!!!
Got a bit stuck cause not sure when is the best time to visit these favourite spots. Weekends or weekdays? I am wondering if I should visit Fremantle during weekday when it is quieter. And save swan valley for weekend when everything is sure to be open.

Hi all, have some question and hope to get helps from yours.
We will go to Perth on Nov time, 2 person. Would like to visit Margaret river area, jetty and light house. Saw many day tour' package online, bt we think that day tour is a bit rush and cant really enjoy the beauty of MR, so we prefer to stay one night there, but there are nt much choices online for 2 days tour. and all r quite expensive.
1) any travel company you can recommend which have package for 2 days tour? (AUD600++ for each person is quite a big amt for us, so looking for those cheaper one)
2) if, we go to busselton by coach and find hostel our own, then take cab to visit several places we like, will it be more cheaper? will it be more convenience?
any better suggestion for me?
Big Thank you to all!
Can anyone recommend a knowledgable travel agent in the South East area of Perth WA.
I was reviewing the prices for home Furniture, washing machines and others in Perth and comparing it to those in the middle east.. the difference is huge in that buying from Dubai and ship it to Perth seems cost effective to me... for example washing machine in Doha or Dubai is about 700 QR / UAD which equals 200 USD
can anyone help with this concept , does Australian government charge us for such shipment in a way that threat the whole process.
I got my visa to Australia where am gonna move from Doha Qatar, I need to arrange accomodation for my family located in Egypt , we could manage to escape the war in Syria and its been 6 months without seeing them.
I will move on Oct 1st and will appreciate any advice from locals or experts in relation to how to settle down quickly...
