  • Only really value for money if you don't have to pay entry, and they provide more onsite ACROD Parking.
  • Awesome food. Loved the fire works
  • Staff in the bars are extremely friend! In these sports bar on Friday night, $7 pints all night!! The sports bar menu is also damn good.. Try the buffalo wings.. They can be as boring or as hot as you like them.. They grow the chilli's in the kitchen garden! 😊
  • Great night out with plenty of great food and drink
  • Interdomins are a great 2 weeks.

Where to stay in Perth

When you choose your Perth accommodations, remember that this city stretches over a wide area, which can cause issues for visitors with limited time to sightsee. The best way to remain close to urban transportation is to stay in the central business district or neighboring Northbridge, where you'll also find the greatest selection of hotels. To avoid the center's big crowds and steep hotel prices, consider booking a room in the coastal town of Mandurah, easily accessible by Perth's reliable suburban railway system.
