From the airport there are a few options to help you find your way to the city of Perth, the easiest one being the Connect shuttle. For $15 you can jump on and travel to one of five major locations, making it convenient for you to find your accommodation. There are also two buses ran by Transperth that go direct to the city. They take approximately 55 minutes from the airport to the centre and they run frequently enough to be a viable option. You can find more information about the buses from the airport or online at the Transperth website. The last option is to get a taxi from outside the airport. They are readily available and easily accessible after your flight to Perth. Obviously the cost of a taxi will be a lot more than the bus or shuttle, but if you have a few of you to split the cost then it could work out more efficient.
