Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Perth: Barna Mia Nocturnal Wildlife Experience (in Dryandra) and Zanthorrea Nursery (in Maida Vale). There's much more to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Kings Park & Botanic Garden, trek along Jacob's Ladder, and look for all kinds of wild species at Bold Park.

Brussels, Belgium to Perth is an approximately 22-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight. The time zone changes from Central European Time (CET) to Australian Western Standard Time (AWST), which is usually a 7 hour difference. Plan for much warmer temperatures traveling from Brussels in December, with highs in Perth at 35°C and lows at 17°C.
