After meeting your guide at Perth City YHA, travel by air-conditioned minivan for approximately 15-minutes to the heritage town of Claremont. Here you will travel back in time as your guide takes you down the historic streets of Claremont viewing buildings and architecture dating back to the 1800's.
Explore the history of Claremont as your guide points out landmarks such as the Claremont Museum and a stunning weatherboard cottage building built before 1903.
As your day continues, delve deeper and uncover some of Perth's secrets as you discover the history surrounding the founding of the Swan River Colony in 1829; a British settlement originally called pars pro toto before being officially renamed as Western Australia in 1832.
Next, your guide will take you to the picturesque Swan River where you will visit the historic Claremont jetty built in 1898 on the Freshwater Bay. Here you will gain a further insight into the life and times of the first pioneers of Western Australia before having morning or afternoon tea (depending on your departure time) including; tea or coffee and a tasting of Australia wildflower jam and biscuits.
If you wish to further explore the town on your own, you have the option to be dropped-off at the local Claremont Shopping Centre or if you wish to make your way back to Perth, the Claremont Train Station for a short trip back to Perth CBD.
