‘The return trip to Rottnest Island was a great day but with almost three hours on the boat (from Perth city) it ends up being a very full day. We enjoyed the trip, and everyone involved was friendly and helpful, so you couldn’t ask for more. If there is a next time, I would perhaps stay for two nights to see more at a leisurely pace.’

    The return trip to Rottnest Island was a great day but with almost three hours on the boat (from Perth city) it ends up being a very full day. We had our own snorkel gear and the water is wonderful and clear. We enjoyed the trip, and everyone involved was friendly and helpful, so you couldn't ask for more. If there is a next time, I would perhaps stay for two nights to see more at a leisurely pace.

    We caught this ferry to take us across to the island , it was a comfortable ride but it was very busy when we were there. When we arrived on the island we had to purchase another ticket to catch a bus which took you around the island, many people wrode bikes but you do need to be fairly fit to do this as the island does have some hills to climb. It was great to see the little Quakas they are very inquisitive creatures.

    I enjoyed the trip to Rottnest. I am not a great sailor, the boat was big and fast even though it was a large swell I was fine sitting inside.

    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.
