Western Australia

Deserts, gorges, beaches, whale sharks, and the lovable quokka hiding in the scrub.

A world away from its East Coast counterparts, Western Australia is vast and remote with unspoilt beaches and a spectacular coastline, diverse terrain and endless blue skies offering plenty of chances to get away from it all.

And there’s plenty of cultural excitement too with a rich sporting heritage, vibrant art scene and inventive food and wine from boutique providores.

Perth, the state’s capital, ranks in the world's top 10 most liveable cities. With 19 stunning beaches and an impressive cityscape, it is a city that is equal parts cool and cultured. Nearby Fremantle offers a chance to discover the maritime and colonial history of the area, whilst on a boat tour of nearby Rottnest Island, you can also seek out the quokka, a lovable little scrub-living marsupial.

To the south is Margaret River, spellbinding culinary destination and world-renowned wine area. In the north of the state lies Ningaloo Reef for up close encounters with the mighty whale shark. Broome, famous for its white sandy beaches that provide a dramatic backdrop for camel rides, and the Kimberley, a vast, untouched wilderness of rugged escarpments, coral reefs, tidal waterfalls and a rich indigenous history.
