Perth, Western Australia Trip 2019 - Day 5 - Perth Train Station and Dinner

After our shopping spree at Watertown outlet, we took the free Cat Bus to Perth Train Station and as we were still early and waiting for our friends, we roam around the CBD area. As usual at 5pm, most of the shops closed except for the bigger marts and shops which closes at 9pm. It looked so deserted.

Finally, time is up for us to meet our friends, we took the train from Perth Underground Station and meet them at another train station where they picked us up in their cars.

My friend cooked up a storm, and there's more food which I did not took photos and sorry no photos of her house either.

Perth, Western Australia Trip 2019 - Day 5 - Watertown Brand Outlet Centre

After settling our check in at Comfort Hotel Perth City, we took the free Cat Bus(YELLOW) from Bus Stop No. 9(bus stop only two streets away from our hotel, about 5 minutes walk) to Bus Stop No 17(Bus stop opposite Watertown), our destination at Watertown Brand Outlet.

The best thing about these Cat Buses were they are free to ride.

Perth has a free bus service that operates around central business district. These buses are called CATS (central area transport service) and service the free transit zone (FTZ). The buses have a low ground clearance which make it easy for people of all ages to hop on an off the buses. The buses have a set route and arrive approximately every 5 to 10 minutes, depending on the route, time of day and day of the week. The CAT routes are either a red or blue route from Monday to Friday and a special modified route for weekends. Please refer to the link for more information on the CAT buses.

Watertown Brand Outlet Centre is Western Australia’s favourite destination for brand outlet shopping. Watertown Brand Outlet Centre is WA’s original brand outlet shopping experience. Conveniently located in West Perth, minutes outside of the Perth CBD. The sales here is really good and the discount is definitely great. We bought so many clothings and tee shirts here. No problem finding food in here too.

We had chinese dishes and rice, price quite reasonable.

After lunch, time to start shopping. There are over more than 100 retailers, offering a diverse mix of International and Australian brands specialising in fashion, accessories, gifts, homewares, leisure and sportswear. We could spend the whole day here.

After shopping, time for us to head to Perth Train Station to meet up with my Australia's friends. She invited us to her house for dinner.

For more information on the premium outlet, please refer to their official website

Perth, Western Australia Trip 2019 - Day 5 - Fremantle Morning Sightseeing and Breakfast

Day 5 at Fremantle, my friend and I had breakfast in one of the cafe inside Fremantle Market. Another friend of ours decided to sleep in and skip breakfast haha.

After breakfast, we walked around the square and took many photos of the beautiful colonial buildings.

Town Hall, St John's Square, Fremantle, Western Australia, Australia

Red and White building

It was a Sunday, the street looked so deserted, most of the shops dont open on Sunday except for Fremantle Market and some major shops.

Saw some beautiful graffiti painted on the walls along Adelaide Street.

At 11 am, we check out of the airbnb apartment. Before taking a direct bus from Fremantle to Perth City, we made a last minute shopping.

Wow the clothes were so cheap and I bought many tee shirts and cute dresses for my grandnephew and grandnieces and they were only A$5 per piece.
