    Default Recommend hotel in Perth

    Hi guys,
    I'm going to Australia, Perth for the first time. There will be three of us myself, my wife and 3 years old daughter. Would anyone recommend not so expensive but still good hotel in the Perth area? I'll be driving so the hotel location is not so important.

    PS: any recommendations on sightseeing places would be appreciated too

    Thanks.

    Hiya!

    Perth sightseeing? let's see....

    Fremantle Port
    (Fremantle Markets best active on weekend mornings)
    City of Fremantle
    Aruluen Park
    (Wildflower)
    Busselton Jetty (Breath taking seaside scenery, abt 6 hrs drive down south)
    Margaret River (Home of WA wines, abt 8 hrs drive down south)
    Carousal (equivalent of SG's Vivocity)
    Fisherman's Jetty (again only if you are a sea / fishing kinda guy) - nice place for picnic / BBQ though, and oh, there's the visiting sea lion who's always around too!
    Sorrento Quay (Nice place for sunset & fish n chips)
    Burswood Casino
    Wildlife park little bit north of Perth (40mins drive, cant remember the name though)
    Monkey Mia (where dolphins come up, close & personal - abt 8 hrs drive up north)
    Rottnest Island (take a short cruise over)
    The Pinnacles
    Swan River (close to perth city - nice skyline)
    Subiaco (little off from city centre but Nike's warehouse located here - very Nottingham-like setting)
    Northbridge (the chinatown of perth - dance clubs, late night eateries, asian eateries, strip clubs - vietnamese, chinese, hongkongers, aborgines etc hang out here). DO come here for the wonderful chilli mussels (late afternoon / dinner time) at Uncle Joe (or is it Papa Joe) and Corina Apple Strudels...

    If you wanna visit vineyards without wanting to drive all the way down to Margaret River (which is south of perth), there's always the northern vineyards (Swan Valley) which are like only 1 to 1.5 hrs north from perth.

    Go to Sakura travel agency located in People's Park Centre. They are good at offering tours and F n E packages to Australia.

    I got a service apt called Kingston @ Hays.

    Serice apt is good esp with child along becos can prepare meals and have fridge to store milk and orange juice. Whats more there are day tours to Pinncales....etc so I freed myself from driving and concentrated on the tour and photog.

    There are days tours to farms too. Can book the day tours when u r in Perth. The pick up point is in town and you can use the CAT bus to go there. It is FOC.

    Bring along cir polarizer. On bright day. the sky is really blue. Imagine with the CP.....

    Places like Wave Rock and Albany are too far for day tours.
