Perth ©
A modern metropolis of glassy skyscrapers, waterside boulevards, and lush residential neighborhoods, Perth sits on the edge of the Swan Coastal Plain.
Explore Perth's surroundings by going to Fremantle Prison (in Fremantle), Caversham Wildlife Park (in Whiteman) and Herne Hill (Illusionary Art, The House of Honey, & more). There's lots more to do: admire the natural beauty at Kings Park & Botanic Garden, take in the exciting artwork at The Sacred India Gallery, have fun at City Summit Indoor Rock Climbing, and do a tasting at Tyler's Vineyard.

Plan my Perth trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Stuttgart, Germany to Perth is an approximately 24-hour combination of train and flight. You can also fly; or do a combination of train, bus, and flight. You'll lose 7 hours traveling from Stuttgart to Perth due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Stuttgart in December, expect Perth to be warmer, temps between 35°C and 17°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 6th (Thu) early enough to travel to Jabiru.
