By car[ edit ] Driving to Perth from Adelaide km or Darwin km is possible, as the road quality is good, and there's fuel, food and accommodation along the main highways.
But it will take the best part of a week each way - that means a week of solid driving, with little time for sights or activities en route.

It may well end the life of your car, if it's elderly. Get around[ edit ] By public transport[ edit ] The Perth metropolitan area has a fairly reliable and inexpensive public transport system operated by Transperth.
Information about timetables, disruptions or service alterations can be found on their website, by calling 13 62 13 or at 'Transperth Infocentres' at the central train station and a couple of branches in the City Bus[ edit ] Transperth bus A reasonably reliable network of public buses serves the city centre, suburbs and outlying townships, with good interconnections between routes and with metro rail services.
Transperth buses are free in central Perth. You don't need a permit or Smartrider, just get on. In addition, there are CAT buses that are free throughout their route. There are four routes - red, blue, yellow, green - and the buses match the colour. See city centre page for details. Similar free bus schemes operate in Northbridge, Fremantle and Joondalup - see relevant pages.
Train[ edit ] Transperth Train The suburban railway network is great for quickly getting to outlying suburban areas. All services stop at the central Perth station in the City on their way to or from the outlying terminating stations. The network consists of five lines: Fremantle Line, servicing western Perth, to Fremantle.
Karrakatta Historical Walk Trail Two
Midland Line, servicing eastern Perth to Midland, and offering transfers to regional and interstate rail services.
Joondalup Line, servicing north-western Perth, to Butler via Joondalup. Joondalup and Mandurah Line services utilise underground platforms at Perth Underground Station, which is directly connected to Perth Station, allowing transfers by foot to the other lines.
All lines connect to various bus services. Most train stations across Perth have bus transfers that service the more local area of the station.
Train services run every 5—10 minutes this depends on the line and station during peak hours, with many trains running express. Off peak and most of the day on weekends, trains run every 15min and 30min after The Armadale Line runs express at all times except late nights.
During peak hours Avoid these lines during peak if possible. Bicycles are not allowed on trains heading toward the city in the morning, or away from the city in the evening; they are also not allowed to enter or pass through Perth, Perth Underground or Esplanade stations.
Services commence around Smartrider Remember to purchase a valid ticket or use your SmartRider card when travelling on the rail network. A good tip to remember is, if you have a SmartRider, to use one of the red fare gates to enter the station, so you can also be sure you have "tagged on".
Do the same when leaving. Not all stations have these gates. If your station does not, look for a green pole with a SmartRider reader instead. Late night service[ edit ] On Saturday morning, extra services depart Perth at These services operate in one direction only, heading away from the city. The Armadale services run all stops during this time; there is no late night service to Thornlie.
Weekend travel[ edit ] Weekend service frequency is 15 minutes on all routes. Trackwork can cause partial line closures on weekends, with buses replacing trains. It is rare for a whole line to be closed due to track work, but it does occur at least twice a year on the Fremantle and Midland Lines. During special events, some extra train services may operate, such as the Perth to West Leederville shuttle, or the Mandurah to West Leederville special. It is best to avoid these trains if you can, as they are often overcrowded.
