Travelling around Perth

Perth boasts some of the country’s best beaches, which are ideal for swimming during the warmer months. Sunscreen is essential and insect repellent may come in handy during the evening. Perth Bus Company have a fleet of vehicles to suit all of your Perth Bus Hire needs As the beaches are on the open ocean it is strongly advised that you only ‘swim between the flags’ at patrolled beaches.

Probably the easiest beach to get to by public transport is Scarborough beach, which can be accessed by catching the Clarkson line from platform 1 at either Perth Underground or Esplanade stations, getting off at Glendalough station before catching the 400 bus (Bus 400 doesn’t exist 990 goes to Scarborough beach and has a stop at Glendallough station Jan15).

Alternatively, you can catch the 400 (990 is the right bus) from the Wellington St bus station which is located down the far end of the central station – from any of its platforms, head west to the concourse, turn left and then head down the ramp. Cottesloe Beach, one of Perth’s most famous, and a favourite among locals and tourists alike, it even easier to access by public transport.

Take the Fremantle line to Cottesloe Station, exit the platform at the Perth end, and head west down Forrest Street for about 10 min. Or you can take bus 102 from Williams street or Esplanade station and it has a stop right by the Cottesloe beach. There is a shady grassed area as well as sand, and the beach is patrolled.
