City Highlights Self Drive

Start your day with a scenic drive through Kings Park, stopping to appreciate the spectacular views of Perth city and the river.

Be sure to take the time to stroll through the botanic gardens and along the Federation Tree Top Walkway. Or, stop for coffee or breakfast at Zamia Café or Botanical Café.

From here wind your way down the hill towards the Perth Convention Centre, turn left and follow the signs to Freeway South stopping to explore Barrack Square and Elizabeth Quay precincts. From here you can visit The Bell Tower, go on a Segway tour, catch the ferry or join a cruise.

Cross over the Narrows Bridge and take a left turn at Mill Point Road to the foreshore of the Swan River where you will be faced with more amazing city views.  

Stop for a coffee break at one of the trendy cafes in South Perth before continuing along Mill Point Road to Canning Highway, take a left turn and cross over the Causeway Bridge towards the Crown Perth.

If you're feeling lucky take a punt at the casino or just enjoy a leisurely walk around the immaculate gardens that line the Swan River.  

Make your way back towards the centre of Perth via East Perth and the 'European-style' townhouses and apartments that line the waters’ edge where you’ll find a range of alfresco cafes and restaurants for dinner.
