... bar was a 20 min walk from the hostel, but with the temperature down to about 16 degrees, the walk was very nice. Pie and Pinot night was in full swing and at $20 per person wasn't too bad a deal given than a beer here is averaging about $10 per 425ml (less than a pint). The five bar was a great place and we had really friendly service there. We headed back early to get a full night sleep as we'd had no more than 5 each, ready for a full day ...
... We strongly recommend that you phone and speak with park staff before booking. They are usually very understanding and eager to help. Caravan and camping holidays are great for all ages and abilities, so don't think 'it's too hard', all things are possible, you just need to do your research and then GO and HAVE GREAT HOLIDAYS TOGETHER! Happy Camping ...
We stayed four nights...May 15-18 , at Central Caravan Park in Ascot, a suburb of Perth. $45 a night minus 10% top tourist park membership. Tight spots so glad it wasn't too full when we arrived. We managed to get a spot we could get the satellite up and receive TV from. Too many trees on the other sites! We set up and then drove to Kings Park. Wow what a view. It looks out over the city and the Swan River. Amazing. Lovely park as well. Took photos ...
... so I must find out if you can stay there. Perth city is very visible from this point and the water is that amazing vivid turquoise colour. We returned the bikes and had a drink at the Dome on the foreshore. As that closed early, we went to another restaurant and a saw a quokka eating the salad scraps on the ground.

TravelPod Member ReviewsRoyal Hotel Perth
A lousy run down derelict hotel- it's only claim to fame is that it is the oldest in the city and it shows.I arrived at midnight on the late red-eye special only to find that the hotel was locked.I then discovered that to gain entry I had to go to another hotel pay the bill and return to the unattended hotel only to find that there were no elevators and yes I was on the top floor accessed by shaky uneven ancient carpeted stairs and of course my room was at the end of the longest corridor. Facilities! Zero. There was a bathroom and a sink. I filled the only glass with water crawled into bed leaving the glass on a small ledge at the side of e bed. Fell asleep, woke up reached out to quench my thirst in the dark, missed it and wet the bed! It's a long time since I did that- I have no idea what the staff thought when they came to make up the bed- It's amazing just how much water is contained in a small glass but I fell asleep soon after squelching around for a few uncomfortable minutes.
