Depart from; Perth City, heading along Stirling Highway to the historic port city of Fremantle.

Take a leisurely drive through the port, passing the heritage 'sheds' that once supported the passenger terminal and the striking WA Maritime Museum.

Cruise along the Cappuccino Strip - you might like to stop for a freshly brewed coffee to start your day or soak up the atmosphere of the weekend markets. From here journey to the Fishing Boat Harbour and take a drive out to the western point to view Garden Island.

Leave Fremantle and head south past Woodman Point, the ship yards at Henderson and the industry of Kwinana. This will bring you to Rockingham. Enjoy a scenic drive along the newly revitalised Rockingham Foreshore; why not stop off for a swim? It's a great beach for the kids, with shallow waters and protection from the sea breeze. There are also some great cafes where you can grab a quick lunch or join a wildlife tour.

Next, follow the road around the foreshore to Point Peron and climb the lookout for spectacular views of the Indian Ocean and local islands.

Continue along the winding road to the Shoalwater Islands Marine Park and take a ferry ride over to Penguin Island and see if you can spot one of the elusive residents or see them being fed at the Penguin Discovery Centre. You may even like to join a dolphin and sea lion watch cruise, or hire a kayak and paddle out to Seal Island.

Travel back to Perth, past the tranquil waters of Safety Bay and onto Kwinana Freeway.
