My family and I are heading to sunny Perth for Christmas. Can anyone suggest
great places to visit?
We have already booked a few days just prior to Christmas at Margaret River.

Thanks
Mel

Why only a few days? You could spend a week or two in that area.
Then proceed to Pemberton, Walpole, and Albany and you may not have any time
left for Perth itself (or Rotto, Fremantle, and Northbridge)

We just recently returned from Perth and one of the places we enjoyed
was Hillarys Harbor Resort north of the city. They had a nice package
deal for $A169 for midweek walk up. Double room, bottle of champaign,
chocolates, and a $A50 voucher at choice of 2 nearby very nice
restaurants. The rooms had full facilities, including free in-room
laundry. There was also secure underground parking.
From there you can go to Rottnest Island and see the island
independently or take a tour. Be sure to see and pet the quokkas.
If you are golfing, I can give you more suggestions.
I found Hertz to have a good rate for an automatic transmission.

Hi Mel
If you want to do something really Australian come for a camel ride at Perth
Outback Camels on Yanchep Beach Road Yanchep. Have a look into the Yanchep
National Park and see the Koalas or have a cave tour. for other ideas about
activities and attractions have a look at http://www.sunsetcoast.com.au you
will also a car rental hire company in there who offer really good deals.

Regards

Gordon.

The caves in Yanchep National Park are the worst I have ever seen.
Those in the Margaret River area are 1000% better.

The Pinnacles are worth seeing and you must visit Freemantle and have Fish
and Chips at Cicrellos - delicous.
