Perth is a beautiful city and offers a great variety of self-drive day trip options.
They’re an easy way for residents and visitors to discover everything the city and surrounding regions have to offer. Here are some suggested itineraries from the team at Executive Towing Services, who will be there to help with car towing in Perth should the need arise.
Head off from your city hotel towards Kings Park. It’s one of the largest inner-city parks in the world, and home to a big variety of flora and fauna. There are nature trails to enjoy and the popular Federation Walkway treetop walk. Plus of course the magnificent views of the city skyline.
From there, head across the Swan River to South Perth, where there are lots of river activities on offer, including a variety of great cruises. Continue heading south to the historic port city of Fremantle. Explore on foot, and make sure you include the Fremantle Market.
The award-winning Swan Valley Food and Wine Trail is a 32-kilometre route that winds its way around the picturesque Swan Valley wine region — just 25 minutes’ drive northeast of the Perth city centre. Choose from 150 wine and gourmet food producers to visit along the trail. You’ll need to nominate a designated driver!
Perth’s sunsets are legendary and there are long stretches of pristine coastline from which to view them. Make a day of it by starting at Hillarys Boat Harbour with its cafés and restaurants for a late breakfast, then head south to the golden sandy beaches of Scarborough and City Beach.
Make your final destination Cottesloe and the famous Indiana Tea House, which literally glows a deep caramel in the light of a good sunset. Fresh fish and chips make the perfect accompaniment to nature’s own spectacular light show.
It’s important for all drivers to have a plan in place about what to do in the event of a car breakdown or accident. Researching the name and number of a towing company before setting off on a road trip is a good idea. Store the number in your phone, so you can contact them easily if the need arises.
