Home to some of the Australia's most prized treasures
A Western Australia (WA) holiday begins in Perth, which offers a relaxed, outdoor lifestyle with nature and beaches alongside the energy of a vibrant city. Rottnest Island is a short ferry trip away and boasts opportunities for relaxation and water activities. North of Perth is WA's Coral Coast where you can swim with whale sharks and cavort with the dolphins of Monkey Mia as well as visit Exmouth, home to Ningaloo Reef and a plethora of colourful marine life.
The northwest region of WA traverses terrain as varied as the Bungle Bungle Range and ancient gorges of the Kimberley to the sparkling azure waters and pristine sand of stunning Cable Beach and Broome. Surfers and bon vivants won't want to miss Margaret River in the state's southwest, which also boasts towering forests, whale-watching opportunities and fine food and wine. For an authentic outback experience, head to the centre for open spaces and clear skies.
