Whether you're visiting from overseas, interstate or from other regions within Western Australia, the Swan Valley is conveniently located just 25 minutes from the centre of Perth and just 10 minutes from the Perth Airport. Getting to Perth is easy - by plane, train or road.
Western Australia's capital, Perth is easily accessible by air from locations around the world, throughout Australia and many regional locations within the state.
Serviced by more than 195 international flights each week, carrying more than 585,000 international visitors (non-Australian) into the state each year, Perth Airport is the major international and regional gateway to Western Australia located only 12 kilometres from the heart of Perth city.
One of the most exciting ways to get to Western Australia is by rail. Perth is the western terminus for the legendary Indian Pacific rail service operated by Great Southern Rail, which spans the entire continent from sea to sea.
This three day trip is one of the world’s great train journeys and visitors can board the train in Sydney, Melbourne or Adelaide and travel across the country.
Departing from the East Coast, witness the beauty of delightful vineyards, riverlands and the expansive, tabletop flatness of the Nullarbor Plain, travel on through the goldfields, rolling wheatlands and the hills surrounding the Avon River before pulling into Perth.
If you prefer to self-drive, there are clearly sign-posted, well marked and serviced wide roads in Western Australia’s north and south. Townships and roadhouses are also regularly spaced throughout.
Stay safe on our roads. The Office of Road Safety in Western Australia contains all the information about our road rules, speed limits and drink driving. Here you will find all road rule details whether you are a driver, a cyclist or a pedestrian, and especially if you are a visitor to Western Australia.
The long stretches of road provide travellers with an appreciation of how big and sparsely populated Australia’s outback is. You’ll also see the grand scale of some of the road transport - some trucks extend 50 metres in length and have more than 40 wheels.
