From whale encounters to unspoiled beaches, extraordinary experiences abound
Western Australia occupies around one-third of Australia’s total landmass. That’s a huge expanse of area – about 2.5 million square kilometres filled with some of the most remote, unspoiled and extraordinary sights and experiences you’ll ever have.
This enormous state boasts the largest collection of wildflowers on the planet – see them in bloom from June to November at Perth's 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, Rottnest Island and other locations along the coast. Food and wine lovers will be blown away with the magnificent array of top-notch edible delights and world-class wines – try Margaret River for a gastronomic holiday like no other.
