To get from Perth Airport (both International and Domestic) to the city you can use the following:
Perth Airport Shuttle: The shuttle will take you to the city to four pre-determined bus stops. The cost is $15 one way and there is no need to book. Please check the map to determine if the stops are close to your hotel. http://www.perthairport.com.au/Libraries/Major_Development_Plans/Connect_shuttle_map.sflb.ashx

To travel from the city to the University we recommend using public transport. The University is conveniently located close to the city of Perth, on the banks of the Swan River. It is easily accessed by local buses run by Transperth. The following bus routes will take you to the university: 950, 23, 102, and 107. These buses all leave from the Esplanade Busport every 1 – 5 minutes during peak times and every 5 – 15 minutes at other times. These buses also travel close to the recommended hotels, so ask at reception for the closest bus stop. You can purchase your ticket on the bus and it will cost you $2.90 one way. This ticket will last you 2 hours so you will need to purchase another one at the end of the day. You can access more information on these bus services on the Transperth website http://www.transperth.wa.gov.au/
