Gas prices in Perth vary and are usually more expensive on weekends and public holidays. The average price is around AUD$1.50 per liter ($1.09 per ¼ gallon, or $4.36 per gallon). The metro area in Perth usually features the cheapest gas stations, with prices increasing further out of the city. Also bear in mind that gas stations become less frequent once out on the rural roads, so refueling beforehand is important.
Street parking in Perth can be tricky and on the expensive side, so, if possible, opt for accommodation with a parking space included. Metered on-street parking is an option, but keep coins ready as many meter machines to not take credit cards and don’t even give change. Additionally, street parking is usually restricted to a maximum of two hours. Parking lots (called “car parks” in Australia) and garages are an alternative where cars can be parked longer, but they are usually quite expensive (up to AUD$5 per hour, which is about $3.60).
