Arriving one day earlier than planned, due to a problem with one of the engines, we docked in the cruise port of Freemantle, Western Australia just outside of Perth.
It was an overnight stay which gave us two full days to explore and we were delighted as we have good friends in Perth who picked me up as unfortunately my wife was feeling unwell on the first day in port.
We headed for Perth and a visit to the famous Kings Park. Then had a delicious meal at a local restaurant followed by a visit to Hillarys Boat Harbour.
It was so nice to meet friends and relax together.
Luckily, we were able to visit Perth again a few years later so my wife was able to visit Kings Park and we returned to the same restaurant. Another fabulous day. It’s a shame our friends are so far away.
My featured photo is of a Kookaburra Bird at Caversham Wildlife Park that my wife and I visited on the second day as part of an excursion.
Here are a few highlights of our overnight stay.
