Where to visit / stay in and around Perth, Australia

Calling any MNetters who have been or who live in Perth. DH and I are visiting his parents for 3 weeks in November and whilst we're there want to spend about a week somewhere within travelling distance of Perth. My youngest DD will be 14 months so we don't want to spend hours travelling and we can't afford to spend hideous amounts of money (as getting there alone is costing us an arm and a leg!)

We would like to go somewhere that has lots of interesting things for us to do as a family but that's about the only criteria. So if you've any suggestions please let me know and any websites that I should go look at would be really useful too.

Fingers crossed I get some replies.....

RTK is right Rotto is the way to go, but you will have to book way in advance, everything else IS bloody miles away, 3 hours drive type thing

swiperfox Sat 06-Aug-05 09:46:25

Have never been!! He's been over there for 15 years lol We would love to go but can't afford it just now. He keeps on at me to go over though. I don't know if i could stand the heat!!!

I have a friend in Perth too, she lives North of the river and my Dad lives south so they both slag off each others district!!
