Perth CBD isn’t big and you can walk from one end of the pedestrian walkway to the other within minutes. Most stores are located here and normally closes at 9 p.m. on Fridays. Otherwise, most store closes at 5 p.m. on other days. Morning scenes are like any other city, but at night, Perth CBD transforms into a lighted ‘fairyland’. At Elizabeth Quay, you’ll get beautiful night scene of Perth.
If you want pictures of the CDB across River Swan, you need to take the ferry at Elizabeth Quay and cross over to South Perth. The return ticket if used within 2 hours cost $3. The ride is about 10 minutes and worth the kind of shots you’ll get from South Perth.
