When you have just 24 hours in Perth, it’s easy to take the taxi to your hotel, dump your bags, grab some food at the hotel restaurant and sleep until you have to leave. Thanks to the excellent public transport, you can travel a lot of ground even with just 24 hours in Perth. Here are five options for things to do during your visit.

Animals on show include Australia’s famous koalas and kangaroos, but the zoo has worked hard to make it a home to many different species from around the world, with elephants, tigers and even a Nepalese red panda, as well as many new additions from the jungles of South America. Couple your tour with the Twilight Outdoor Cinema to enjoy a night under the stars with a picnic blanket and film during your 24 hours in Perth.

Those who are interested in the park’s flora and fauna will not want to miss seeing many of the 2,000 different species of plants on view in the 17-hectare Botanic Gardens.
