Perth Buses & Ferries

Apart from a fairly extensive regular bus network, there are a number of special Perth bus services aimed to help the eager tourist get around. Maps of Perth are available from most hotels and Perth bus timetables from Transperth desks at Perth City train station and Wellington Street bus station. With these two in hand, you can plan your entire Perth vacation.

The Transperth network incorporating ferries, trains and buses can be accessed using a Smartrider card, which makes the fare significantly cheaper than tickets purchased on board. The specialty Perth CAT buses have 4 different bus routes to Perth attractions and Perth beaches. They depart every 5-10 minutes on weekdays and 25-30 on weekends, and are absolutely free! Keep an eye out for the special CAT bus stops in Perth city and surrounds.

If it's sunny weather in Perth, Western Australia, you might like to hit the water. Scenic river cruises in Perth are a great way to see the city surrounds, or you can jump on one of the Perth ferries to South Perth, home of the Perth Zoo. It takes just seven minutes and offers great views at a fraction of the price.

Of course no Perth holiday is complete without a trip to Rottnest Island. A short ferry journey from Fremantle will deposit you on the shores of this pristine natural reserve, with gorgeous beaches and crazy little mammals called Quokkas. Not to be missed!

Ferry times vary but you'll find Perth ferry timetables are available from the ferry terminals and Perth Tourist Information offices.
