Leave the car behind when traveling through Perth. With one-way streets (never marked very clearly), pricey car parking, and a city centre that caters more to the Central Area Transit (CAT) bus services, you do not want to get stuck behind a wheel. Hop on a bus within the Free Transit Zone and get anywhere in the CBD you need without hassle. Keep an eye on the time, though! Most of these free bus services stop running around 7 pm every night, with the Blue CAT running until midnight on the weekends. If you’re planning on the bucks to go a little later, the trains run until 2am on Friday and Saturday.
When all else fails, Uber and taxi services are not only exclusive (no strangers on the bus to ruin your vibe) they are easy, taking all the stress out of trying to find your way around Perth. And did we mention this way you can party all night long? Or at least until the clubs close up for the night.
If your buck loves his AFL, head to the new stadium to watch the mighty West Coast Eagles take flight. The NBL is growing rapidly in Perth, and you can see the live court action when you go check out the Perth Wildcats. If you consider yourself more of a cricket guy, go check out a match at the WACA.
