Perth: things to do on holiday
 
When my parents come out in Nov they are planning a break from their granparenting duties and heading over to Perth.

As I've never been I wondered whether any of you have any ideas of things they should try and do while they're there.

They do lots of walking, love Australian wildlife and are interested in history (such as there is any in Aus!!!)

Where should I send them?

I can vouch for the wine tasting cruise - just make sure they are not driving :)
I sent my mum and her hubby up to the Pinnicles - they thought they were really adventurous as they left with a thermos and butties!

Bell tower what a rip off go on the swan valley cruise first then you will get free passes to the bell tower, we did the opposite it was expensive to get in cant remember how much but a bit of a rip off so do the cruise first is my advice and get in for free.
