Western Australia Highlights & Essential Things To Do
Discover Your Local Western Australia Area
The largest state on the largest island, on the smallest, flattest, lowest and driest continent in the world, Western Australia is a truly unique place. 12,500 kilometres of coastline stretches from the Kimberley and Pilbara regions in the north, where weather conditions fluctuate between hot and stupidly-hot, to the temperate conditions in the Margaret River region in the south. In such an expansive area, it would be a miracle if you couldn't find a whole host of wonderful things to do and exciting places to go.
Beginning in the far north, hidden deep within the isolated Kimberley region, you’ll be lucky enough to witness some truly remarkable natural phenomena. The drawcard for this area has to be the amazing Horizontal Waterfalls and the beguiling Cable Beach , where taking a camel ride across 22 kilometres of golden sand next to crystal clear water is the only true way to get around. Unique only to this region, these are two truly wonderful places to go, with some amazing sights to behold.
As you head south towards the state capital, Perth, you’ll step into the dry and arid Pilbara region. A thinly populated, isolated region of north-west WA, Pilbara is a simmering hotbed of beautiful geological land formations, gorgeous coastline and hot red sands of the desert. Home to the Red Dog Memorial Statue and Mount Nameless, Pilbara is a fabulous and fascinating place to go and visit.
As you reach the south, Perth greets you like a long-lost family member returning from an expedition to the wild. Closer to Jakarta and Singapore than its own nation’s capital, Perth is a truly remarkable city, and the most isolated capital city in the world. Cottesloe Beach , the Fremantle Markets and the Perth Observatory are all waiting for you, leading the way as some of the hottest attractions and top local places to visit.
Finish your WA trip in the beautiful Margaret River region, where the luscious landscape and adorning countryside sports over 138 wineries for you to choose from. Sit back and relax as you look back in awe at the beautiful landscape you’ve just seen and the amazing activities you've undertaken.
