Well, I hope you enjoyed the trip. When I went through this road trip, I realized that driving isn't just about the wheels. It's also about the road and its surroundings.

Perth's Coffee Culture

For coffee culture, head West. King, Murray and Hay Streets west of William Street are locally known as “the West End” of the city. For street culture you can't go passed the cosmopolitan cafes, restaurants, historic buildings, galleries and modern fashion that abound in this part of town. 

Perth Theatre Company

Accommodation

This sophisticated hotel provides  an array of luxury hotel rooms and suites. It also offers five restaurants and bars, fitness facilities, outdoor pool, minibars, in-room spa services, a business center and 16 meetings rooms, with Wi-Fi access.

Busy Isolation 

Being isolated these days can be a mixed blessing. 

When you need to get away from the hustle and bustle it's great, but it usually means sacrificing some of the conveniences of city living. Perth however, is unique in the way it mixes the conveniences of the city with the peace of being able to get away from it all, and booking your car hire Perth trip with Vroom Vroom Vroom makes it even easier.

130 years ago, miners were heading for Western Australia during the Gold Rushes. The isolation meant hardship and was often dangerous. These days the isolation means beautiful open spaces, peace, quiet and relaxation. Perth may be the most isolated capital city in the world but you wouldn't know it seeing how easy it is to access all the things to do and see in the region, and Perth itself is just the beginning.

A Perth Car Hire gives you the mobility to explore this region in a way those miners would never have dreamed possible.

The guided tours of the Perth Mint in the heart of the city give an idea of how rich in history the state is. Couple that with the saltier maritime history of Fremantle (only 20 mins drive from the city centre, right) and you begin to see just how rich and varied this region is.

But if history isn't your thing, and a smooth glass of wine or pint of beer is more your cup of tea, you can't look any further than the Perth wine region. Margaret River, located only four hours south of Perth city, is leading the way in the Australian Wine industry.

Perth Car Hire gives you the freedom to tour this burgeoning market right at its heart, while making a purchase or two along the way. Along with wine, the micro-breweries popping in and around Perth are worth a look. The Little Creatures Brewery in Fremantle provides a great day of beer tasting and food experience, before you head to one of the many beaches only a short drive from anywhere in Perth.

But the richness of the region won't affect your budget. In fact,the cheap car rental Perth deals with Vroom make it so simple to access this font of history and culture, it's a surprise there haven't been any more Gold Rushes in WA.


Western Australia for undersea adventures

Snorkelling and WA? If you're not a surfie or WA local, you might not suspect they go hand in hand. 

Cairns and other east coast towns have taken the prize for the most popular beaches, surf and water sports. But, if you think about it, all that stretch of coast on the west must have some truly amazing untouched beaches.

Western Australia has thousands of kilometres of coastline, hundreds of nearby islands, diverse marine life, and a mix of tropical and temperate climates. All this plus numerous shipwrecks just offshore make for world- class snorkelling and diving.

With a mix of calm bays for snorkellers and good waves for surfers, WA allows for a variety of water adventures.

Nigaloo Reef and Jurien Bay are very popular and close to get to from Perth

The marine park at Jurien Bay stretches from Wedge Island to Greenhead. There you can find sea lions and limestone caves with overhang formations.

The Busselton Jetty Underwater Observatory sits eight metres below sea level and gives a stunning view of the marine life and coral.

Visit Rottnest Island – an ideal snorkelling location for beginners and families.

Mettams Pool is a calm snorkelling spot within 30 minutes of Perth city

Spot cute penguins at Shoalwater Marine Park, just an hours south of Perth.

For shipwrecks, cavernous reefs and seagrass meadows you can't miss the islands around Shoalwater Marine Park.

Then head further south to Dunsborough, where Western Australia's most famous prepared wreck lies. Dive down and visit the Destroyer Escort HMAS Swan.
