Nestled on the outskirts of Perth in Western Australia, Perth Airport has a range of passenger facilities and amenities. The domestic terminals are slightly closer to central Perth, and the International terminal a few miles further out of town.
The airport is modestly sized, and has been criticised for being slightly run-down. In recent years, Perth Airport has seen an increase in passenger flow, so if you're flying at peak times, expect queues and plan accordingly.
The airport is located seven miles (12km) from Perth's city centre.
Getting to the city
An Airport-City Shuttle meets domestic and international arrivals and services the city and many hotels. There is also a regular shuttle service to Fremantle and Scarborough, and bus 37 runs a service to the city centre from the domestic terminals. Taxis are available outside both the Domestic and International terminals, and a trip from the International terminal to Perth city will cost approximately A$33.
