On this Perth Urban Adventure you will learn the past, present and future of this fascinating city. From stories from Pre-European Noongar history, English Settlement and boom times, no stone is left unturned.
What to Expect
Bigger than Texas - Perth is the capital city of Western Australia, an enormous state that takes up a third of Australia. Originally not of any interest to the British, it was only when French and Dutch explorers started sniffing around that the English decided there should be a colony in the West of Australia.
Discover the evolving small bar scene and little known out of the way places you might like to return to during your stay on this information-packed 2-hour guided walking tour through the heart of Perth with a friendly “Sandgroper” as your guide. Together we will explore the modern day secrets of the Central Business District, a powerhouse riding the wave of the resources boom.
To really get know the city, you’ll get stories about the quirks of its history, heritage, culture and architecture. Rather than get bogged down in dates and historical data, your passionate guide will show you why Perth “is the way it is.”
Everything finishes up at Rosie O’Grady’s in Northbridge where the first drink is on us! A great night out, whether you are visiting from over east, overseas or even if you are a local West Australian who wants to dig deeper into our rich history.
