Local Public Transport
There is a Free Transit Zone in Perth,
From post 22: Also, note that the Hilton and Hyatt are at opposite ends of town.
Catching a Transperth bus, such as between these two hotels, is free in this zone

Getting to Perth

b) Perth Airport Connect.com
c) Airport Shuttle
d) No. 37 bus, which runs from domestic T3/T4 (covers QF, JQ, VA) into the city and goes along Adelaide Terrace which turns into St George's Terrace as in post post 369 by tuapekastar. Buy a ticket on the bus (post 371)

b) Great Southern Rail (GSR) run the Indian Pacific train twice each week from Sydney to Perth via Adelaide.
