DescriptionArcades & Laneways is the most comprehensive guided historical tour in Perth. Western Australia is an enormous state that takes up a third of the country – and Perth is its booming capital. Originally not of any interest to the British, it was only when French and Dutch explorers started sniffing around that the English decided there should be a colony in the West of Australia. Discover the evolving small bar scene and hidden gems on this information packed walking tour through the heart of Perth's lesser known streetscapes with a friendly 'Sandgroper' as your guide. The arcades and laneways provide interesting routes to navigate through the city center as well as great spots to check out hip and happening events and the proliferation of street art. Together we will explore the modern day secrets of the Central Business District, a powerhouse riding the wave of the resources boom. To really get know the city, you’ll get stories about the quirks of its history, heritage, culture and architecture. Rather than get bogged down in dates and historical data, your passionate guide will show you why Perth “is the way it is.” Your Perth tour finishes up at a local pub in Northbridge, where the first drink is on us! A great afternoon out, whether you are visiting from over east, overseas, or even if you are a local West Australian who wants to dig deeper into our rich history.
