SWAN RIVER

 

On the doorstep of Perth lies the natural beauty of the Swan River; creating a stunning contrast against the skyline of city high rises. Dual-use paths make it possible to walk, ride or skate a circuit around the river or take a tour on a Segway. There are also many grassy areas to have a picnic, enjoy a sunset and watch the city come alive with light.

For water sports enthusiasts sailing, windsurfing and kayaking are popular choices in Perth, with hire facilities located along the foreshore. The ‘bridges’ walk around the river (crossing at Narrows Bridge and the Causeway) will take you approximately 2.5 hours.

The jetties at Barrack Square are the departure point for river cruises to Fremantle, Swan Valley Wine Region and Rottnest Island, as well as ferries to South Perth and Perth Zoo. The vibrant riverside location features public art, cafes, restaurants and a lively bar.

Rottnest Island

 

Just 19 km off the coast of Perth, but an entire world away, lies the sunny holiday island of Rottnest – Western Australia’s very own island paradise.

Rottnest Island is blessed with a casual atmosphere, picturesque scenery, dazzling marine life and some of the world’s finest beaches and pristine bays.

Rottnest Island earned its curious name when in 1696, Dutch explorer, William de Vlamingh, mistook the island’s unusual marsupial population for common rats and named it Rottnest – literally translating to ‘rats nest’. Today, having a photo taken alongside the ‘rats’ – known as Quokkas – is one of the main highlights for visitors to the island.

Not surprisingly, water activities play a major role in island life – from snorkelling and diving to fishing, surfing, boating, kayaking, sailing and swimming!

With just over 135 species of vibrant tropical fish and 20 species of coral, heading below the surface is a truly worthwhile experience. Rottnest Island boasts the world’s most southerly corals seasoned divers will be happy to know that just off the coast slumbers a vast graveyard of over 13 shipwrecks waiting to be explored. Informational plaques can be found alongside the wrecks and are complemented by onshore plaques indicating their location for those that don’t want to brave the depths.

Bespoke private charter Itineraries can be tailored to suit your desired adventures and the time frame you have available to enjoy the offerings of Rottnest Island.

Our experienced crew will be on hand to make sure you get the most out of your time aboard BlackLabel.
