This is the state which encompasses Australia from the very top to the very bottom. Down south its pristine white beaches, award-winning wine regions and ancient forests. Perth is the international gateway and a friendly city blessed with huge sunshine hours and some of Australia’s finest beaches.
Fremantle has a rich maritime and convict history that is best explored in its 19th Century port streetscape. It’s just a 30 minute ride from Perth or a leisurely cruise down the Swan River.
Heading north along the coast, the Pinnacles Desert in the Namburg National Park, is an almost other-worldly landscape of limestone spires, formed over millions of years. Whilst the Coral Coast is blessed with an abundance of natural wonders; from the Abrolhos Islands, found 60km of shore and the Kalbarri National Park, to the Shark Bay World Heritage Area where you’ll find the Monkey Mia dolphins, and the world’s largest population of Dugongs. Further north, but still part of the Coral Coast is Ningaloo Reef. Established as a UNESCO World Heritage Area in 2011, it’s regarded as one the great ocean paradises, it gives the Great Barrier Reef a run for its money, and is where you can swim with the majestic whale sharks.
Broome is gateway to the Kimberley wilderness and home to Australia’s pearling history, although only a 2 ½ hour flight from Perth, this little town is a melting-pot of cultures honed over many years. Enjoy over 22 km of beautiful white beaches and turquoise water on Cable Beach and walk in the footsteps of dinosaurs at Gantheaume Point. The Kimberley region covers the entire north western corner of Australia and is vast; to put it in perspective it’s three times larger than the UK! Expect prolific wildlife, outback stations, cool swimming holes, one of the country’s best 4WD driving experiences – the Gibb River Road and truly epic scenery.
