    Yes it does (for now) include all Australian airports.

    As domestic and international terminals are a long way apart (several miles) be sure to go to the right one.
    What else would you like to know?

    That's good to know! How's the transport to the city centre?

    There is a bus, fairly affordable but infrequent service and doesn't meet every flight.
    Otherwise cab.
     
  5. Are you coming into the Domestic or International terminal? There's a normal public transport bus from the domestic terminal, however it takes a while to get to the city. From the domestic and international terminals there are also the Connect buses, which cost AU$15 from the domestic terminal and AU$18 from the international terminal.
    There's info including the timetable here:

    Great info, thanks! We'll be flying in from Narita, so I am guessing International...

    Take the time to visit Fremantle. Beautiful city, and only 20 min from Perth.

    Well, as it's stinkin' hot (and humid!) right now, the beach is always on the cards. Perth is Australia's sunniest capital city, so it's almost always beach weather [​IMG] Mill Point Road in South Perth is home to parasailing, or Pelican Point is the place for kite surfing lessons.
    The Margaret River wine region is 3 and 1/2 hours south of Perth, or closer to the city is the Swan Valley wine region. Rottnest Island is a short ferry ride from the city, hire a bike or there's a hop on hop off bus.
    There is so much to see and do here, if you could let us know what your interests are we could give you some more targeted suggestions.
