Journey: Perth Airport to Northbridge

Northbridge is a bustling inner-city suburb of Perth located a swift 5-minute walk north of the CBD. Northbridge is an incredibly popular hive of activity well known for its nightlife, trendy bars and thrift stores. It is also a frequently visited spot for our drivers, as many travellers coming from Perth Airport find themselves headed directly into Northbridge. Luckily your trip from Perth Airport to Northbridge is quick and easy, as it is only 13.6 kilometres. There is a direct public bus from the airport that, for a cheap price, will take you directly into Northbridge in around 35 minutes during an off-peak period. With a Hughes private transfer, however, we can cut that time in half and see you arriving in as little as 15 minutes, in comfort and ease.

Although the trip is only brief, we find that opting for convenience and efficiency will help to alleviate the stresses that often accompany airport transfers: tight schedules, heavy luggage and city traffic, especially if you’re travelling with small children and family or larger groups. Hughes can accommodate all these possible scenarios and more, whilst never compromising on affordability. We have an extensive fleet of premium and luxury vehicles to suit all needs and budget types. So, make the most of your next Northbridge stay by booking a Hughes chauffeur-driven transfer today.

Perth Airport

Perth Airport is a busy and modern airport consisting of four terminals. These are separated into two main terminal precincts and getting from one precinct to the other will take you about a 15-minute drive. Whilst domestic flights depart from all terminals, international flights operate only from within T1.

Both precincts are exceptionally well-appointed and offer a large variety of facilities to keep you thoroughly entertained. These features include free WI-FI, cafes, restaurants, bars, retail and duty-free shopping, sleeping pods, public viewing decks, child facilities and more. Parking at the airport is both easy and plentiful with short-term and long-term car parks available at both terminals. Pick-up and drop-off bays are well signed and easily accessible. And there are also plenty of disability parking spots onsite.

For those opting for a Hughes private transfer, our meet and greet service takes the guesswork out of your airport experience. Once you’ve landed, simply make your way to the arrival halls and our professional chauffeur will be standing directly opposite the arrival doors to personally show you to your awaiting vehicle.
