where are teams staying etc..ive gotta organise accommodation and dont know where anything is in perth..is it better to stay in the city or near the beach or what

Website says they have a shuttle bus running from the CBD to the fields and back each day, so city accomodation will be handy.

Kings hotel, one of the hotels reccomended on the Aussienats2009.com.au site is fairly central in the city (about 1km walk to shuttle bus). Most of Umlaut are staying there. A few of us have booked a seperate apartment for four days in building with pool, spa, sauna to help relax!

How expensive is that, I have a quote from the Mountway Apartments on Mount St in East Perth that is about $50 a night..is this one cheaper

$95 a night per room. Rooms are either twin (2 x Single) or Double (1 x dble or queen bed). So works out to just under $50 per person per night.

Hi Guys,

The best place to stay really depends on how you organise you transport.  If you want to use the shuttle buses, i suggest the city (mountsway) our CBD is pretty small, but you still dont want to have to walk through it everyday with playing gear so if you can find places close to the Convention and Exhibition center that will be your best bet.  

If you are willing to organise your own transport (buses, taxis) I suggest you closely investigate the routes from the accom to the fields.  Not many buses run to McGillvray (directly at least) so it may be difficult to get to the fields for an 830 game using public transport.  That being said if you want to go via the city you could always jump on the shuttle (which means getting up earlier= cranky players)

If you plan on taking taxis you can pretty much stay anywhere, if you want beach any beach from trigg to scarborough is close to the fields (scarborough & cottesloe are you best bets for accom).  I would highly recommend booking taxis as far in advance as possible for the next morning, our system is Shite and booking the night before is about you only hope of getting one at a good time for you.

Hope that helps.  Anyone from WA want to add/edit anything?

I'm not from WA, but I'll add that the buses aren't going from the CBD anymore, but from a train station somewhere out in the sticks.  Now you have to catch a train to the bus.

Hahaha, i have never heard of shenton park being called the sticks. if the golden triangle is the sticks, where the fuck do i live?

Perth transit system revolves around the city and the train. getting to the city train station is easy from everywhere.
Google maps incorporates Transperth (transit system) in the 'directions' section. you will see how easy it is.

Yeah, taxis are an ok option. But getting taxis is touch and go at best. And you got NO chance of getting one on Anzac Day because the Vet's use them pretty extensively to get to services etc. Also, getting taxis to pick you up from the fields will be tough. Its pretty out of the way from the normal taxi hubs (Northbridge, CBD, Casino, Airport, etc) and cars will most likely be reluctant to head all the way out there.

Hire cars are a better option, but not sure how much this will set you back. If you can get a minivan or two, probably be worth it if you split the costs amongst your team.

Dont use public transport, its very very limited to McGilvray fields.

I would stay in the CBD. Central in Perth is much easier to get to and from. The only reason you would stay at the beach is if you have a desire to stay on the best beaches in Australia. And Perth's a small city, so if your central, its easy to get anywhere.

Good Advice. Eley knows the bests ways to get around Perth without being able to drive himself. Knows the Perth train timetable better than he knows his Contract Law notes.
