    The Perth Mint museum is not very big but it is well worth a visit. There are lots of real gold exhibits to look at and touch, and our guide Greg was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The demonstration of making a gold bar was fascinating and was the highlight.

  • Orit V – Via TripAdvisor

    Great fun for whole family and very informative tour. Our tour guide was amazing, the tour was fantastic. Kids enjoyed seeing the one tone gold coin and the gold pouring. There is nice cafe on site, with good selection of drinks and snacks.

  • Neil M – Via TripAdvisor

    The biggest gold coin in the world is seriously BIG, good tour with lots of information about the mint and gold in general. The shop is pretty amazing, from basic souvenirs to high end jewellery. Friendly efficient staff as well.

    The Perth Mint tour was superb and surprisingly entertaining. It is well planned and organised. I highly recommend this tour if you have the time. I have been raving about it since returning home.

  • Neilm206 – Via TripAdvisor

    Nice clean buses with informative commentary and you do cover a lot of Perth so it is a good way to get a feel for what you might want to return to. We enjoyed the tour and I know it is difficult in running a business but a bit more frequency (ie more buses) would be a step forward.

    I boarded the Perth Explorer at Elizabeth Quay and was welcomed by a most friendly driver. The family ahead of me had a small child who was given a koala you. Sadly I was deemed too old! However I was able to buy a 'concession' ticket as an over 60's tourist. The commentary was timed well and clearly audible. As the tourist numbers are lower than other cities the bus only departs at hourly intervals. Be mindful of this when you hop off! I would thoroughly recommend the Perth Explorer. As always a great way to get the feel of a city and see it's highlights.

    This is a fabulous way to get the most of out of your trip to Perth. If you are short on time and would like to view the top attractions then this is the way to do it! You can hop on at various locations and hop off at various attractions and spent as much time as you would like there. The buses run on a schedule and didn't miss a beat. It is fun and very inexpensive and you can upgrade your tour and include tours to Fremantle and Rottnest Island. My only critique is that the buses need some loving care. The interior is a bit run down and seeing this is mostly a tourist attraction, I would say you want to showcase the best and not the worst.
