From close encounters with whales to staking a claim to your own spot on the whitest beach in the country, WA serves up extraordinary experiences

Western Australia occupies around one-third of Australia’s total landmass. That’s a huge expanse of area – about 2.5 million square kilometres, which means you will never tire of places to go, things to see and experiences to have, whether you’re a visitor or resident.

Western Australia boasts the largest collection of wildflowers on the planet – see them in bloom from June to November at Kings Park and Botanic Gardens or the Perth Hills, which incorporates five national parks. Western Australia also has some of the whitest beaches in the country – Cable Beach, Esperance and Eighty Mile Beach are some of the best spots for surf and sand.

Whale watching tours are available in Albany, Broome, Exmouth, Perth, Fremantle, Hillarys, Denham, Kalbarri, Geographe Bay and at Rottnest Island. Food and wine lovers will be blown away with the magnificent array of top-notch gastronomic delights and world-class wines.
