Perth Airport
Perth Airport is a modern facility approximately 30 minutes away from the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre. The international and domestic terminals are easily accessible by car, taxi and bus.

A taxi trip from the airport terminals to Perth City Centre will take 20 to 30 minutes.  The journey will cost approximately A$30– A$50. All taxis are meter operated by time and distance and operate 24 hours a day. Taxis are easily accessible from the airport; there is a rank outside both the International and Domestic terminals.

You can also request a ride from Uber from either the Domestic or the International terminals of Perth Airport. Just request your Uber once you have exited the terminal and your driver will meet you at the pick–up area. A typical UberX (low cost ride) to Perth’s CBD costs A$25 – 34. For more information on Uber in Perth please see here.

Eating Out

Restaurants in Perth draw on the surrounding produce-rich regions; seafood from Fremantle, gourmet goods from Swan Valley and fantastic wines from the Margaret River region. The city centre is also coming-of-age with a collection of Italian bistros, seafood restaurants and hip breakfast spots making their mark. But the jewel in Perth’s crown lies in its neighbouring suburbs where trendy professionals mingle at intimate cocktail bars, romantic restaurants and seek new opening restaurants.
