If you don't have a hotel near East Perth, then catch a bus in Perth's CBD, at St Georges marked "WACA". Buses in the Perth CBD are free.

CYCLE/WALK - From, Victoria Park, Belmont and Burswood. The cycle path along the Swan River if approaching from the southwest or Victoria Park is a pleasant option. This approach is south of Optus Stadium. If approaching Perth Stadium from the many cheap hotels in Perh at Belmont, walk west along the Great Eastern Highway, then turn right along Victoria Park Drive after walking under and past (500m) the rail bridge spanning Great Eastern Highway. From East Perth the Windan Bridge from East Perth should be a pedestrian option if you're not drunk. It's a big drop. The new Swan River pedestrian crossing bridge in 2018 when the delayed Matagarup bridge construction is finished. Unfortunately because of engineering stuff ups, the foot bridge won't be operational till late 2018. Because of the transport pressures, this delay means no Friday night games at the Perth stadium till the bridge is operational. An alternate, longer pedestrian route joining East Perth with the new Optus Stadium is under the Windan bridge over the Swan River. Bicycle routes to Perth Stadium are the same as that for pedestrians mentioned above though I guess the Windan Bridge would be closed for cyclists on event days.
By boat. A jetty at the stadium is planned for a ferry service between Perth and the Perth Stadium. Freo Docker supporter could combine a football match in Perth with a pleasant Perth whole boat charter cruise back to Fremantle down the Swan River. In April and May 2018 the Swan River is closed to boats at the bridge construction site.
