      I am considering taking a cruise from Perth back to Singapore on the Voyager of the seas, Royal Caribbean. From what I understand, the cruise centre is based at Fremantle. Although there are the 2 of us, we travel really light with only 1 24" bag weighing about 15kg at most. As such, I am wondering how to get to the cruise centre by public transport. anybody done that before? appreciate any kind of help. thanks a lot

    • Travelling alone to Perth

      by Chelsea13 Online Now Dec 20, 2013 at 2:33 AM

      Hi Guys,
      Was wondering could you offer me some advice...
      I'm an Irish girl (Early Thirties) travelling from Ireland, arriving in Perth on 5th of January, staying for 14 nights. I used to live In Perth a few years back so said I'd come back and visit. I'm pretty much going to be on my own for the duration of my stay... I know a couple of people that I used to work with are still based in Perth but it's looking like they will be busy most days between work and everything. I'm planning on staying in a hotel around the CBD area. Just wondering have you any advice for a lady alone in Perth? Things to do during the day? Things to do at night? Things NOT to do also! Will it be safe at night time? It's been a while so I don't know what Perth is like crime wise etc.! I won't be hiring a car so it will be public transport all the way.
      Any tips for a lady on their own basically : )

    • First time heading to Perth (holiday + school recce) - where is the most convenient area to stay?

      by Gina_L Online Now Dec 1, 2013 at 11:44 PM

      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!=)

      by Queenofbees Online Now Oct 6, 2013 at 1:58 AM

      Dear forumers
      Will be grateful for some help here. The itinerary we have planed is this, (end oct):
      Freo
      Swan valley
      Hotham steam train
      Bluehills farm
      Boshack farm
      Penguin island
      Dolphin discovery centre
      Peel zoo?
      Kings park

      Question,
      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,!!!!

      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?
