A great service. Pension day rider $3.70 from 9.00 to close of day, go anywhere bus and train. BARGAIN!
A day is easily filled with a visit to tha Maratime Museum at Fremantle. We were joined by our son and daughter-in-law and Ben and Bec. The kids enjoyed themselves as there were plenty of interactive things to do. Ben says he is going to be a gold miner when he grows up and found huch treasure including gold in the various displays. He has now added pearles to his must have list.
As is common in maritme museums, there are many intricate models of ancient and modern ships. The distinction here is that there are a number of original vessels important to Perth's history.
HMAS Ovens is a submarine which retired from service in the late 1990s after serving as a general submarine based out of Fremantle and at the later part of its service as a submarine training school based at the same port.
The entry fee to the museum is modest and can include a conducted tour of the submarine. Those who are tall had to be ultra cautios - those that were small had to stretch to get through the watertight hatches.
The photos include some interesting social notices on the trains.
The train transport around Perth and Fremantle is great for seniors and all co-ordinates with the bus services.
