If you feel like getting out on the water, take the inexpensive public transport ferry across the river to South Perth, to wander along the foreshore or visit the zoo. For a more extended cruise head out to the picturesque Swan Valley on a wine tasting cruise, take a whale watching tour, or head across the ocean to Rottnest Island. All services depart from Barrack Street Jetty.
If you are looking for a distinctive souvenir or memento of your stay, check out the unique offerings from the exclusive boutiques in Barrack Square. With a range of authentic Australian handmade art, artefacts, giftware and uniquely Australian attire such as Akubra hats and crocodile leather merchandise, you will find something to suit all tastes and budgets.
Right in the centre of the city, the Barrack Street Jetty is an easy stroll from the bus and train stations or the Hay Street Mall.
