What's there to say? It closes at 5pm.

In all seriousness - explore Fremantle, Kings Park and walk along the foreshore. Cottesloe Beach or even Scarborough beach are ok. You'll need a rental car if you do anything outside the main CBD.
I have gay, black, Asian friends and then JR8.

Thanks for the suggestions, yea it'll be a good place to clear my mind.
I'll be renting a car anyhow since its pretty affordable.
I did some research and it costs >25aud to cab/uber from the airport to the city! (18km?)

any specific place or activity that you would recommend me to try? :mrgreen:

Catch the ferry to Rotto.
Go to a beach.
Explore Fremantle markets.

I've driven down to Margaret River from Perth before, alone. It's where they filmed the original "Point Break" big wave as well as nice wine region.

It was a good drive (despite the fact that I got a speeding ticket by a cop who jumped out in front of my car on the road!!!).

tell me about it.

the cops at Perth are like ninja trained. I got pulled over at 2am on an empty (or so I thought) street for changing two lanes without switching on my indicator light. =D> =D>
