Our Perth Vacation Itinerary

Thanks to Catherine who did most of the legwork of compiling brochures and putting up the vacation itinerary. I did try to look up some info online, but it was very difficult to plan the Perth Vacation itinerary myself sue to my unfamiliarity. Before the trip, I went to MPH bookstore, I couldn’t find any books about Perth either. Most of it was about Melbourne and Sydney, the main tourist destination. Perth was somehow overlooked by most tourists. Even if you were to book a tour from a travel agent, it would usually just be a 5D/4N or 6D/5N affair. A very short tour indeed.

We were staying so long in Perth as our Sara Worldwide Vacation club timeshare duration was one week long. At first we wondered what we will do for such a long period especially many friends and relatives feedback was that Perth has nothing much to do. Trust Catherine to come up with an itinerary, since she had been studying there and now working to know some of the various interesting places to go. Besides, she already planned several itineraries for her parents and other relatives for their trip to Perth. So ours is not much different from theirs. We did skip some of the more adventurous stuff as we got seniors in tow. Not good to stress them out, so we took a more easy going tour.

We didn’t follow her itinerary exactly but followed some and modified where needed. After all, we were on self-drive and could change the plan as we saw fit. We didn’t cram in a whole load of must see sights like most tours do, we just kept it simple and easy and took our time to enjoy the place. So our actual vacation tour became as below.
