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.

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:

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>
