Discover Western Australia
Western Australia is adored for its brilliant blue skies, warm sunny climate and white sandy beaches. It is a land blessed with some of the world's most precious natural phenomena including the dolphins of Monkey Mia, the 350-million-year-old Bungle Bungle range and the towering Karri forests of the South West.
Spanning over 2.5 million square kilometres (1 million square miles), Western Australia extends into different climatic zones simultaneously. When it is warm and dry in the north of the State, it is cool and wet in the south - that is how big Western Australia is. Perth, the capital city of the State, is home to 1.38 million people and enjoys more hours of sunshine than any other capital city in Australia.
Sophisticated yet uncomplicated, the lifestyle in Western Australia is a relaxed one. Perth offers visitors a variety of multi-cultural restaurants, cafes, bars and nightclubs. Spend a day shopping, cruising on the Swan River, relaxing on a secluded beach, or play a round of golf on one of Perth's many courses. Take a day tour east to Wave Rock, or south to the Margaret River region. Rottnest Island also makes a wonderful day out, with pristine blue water, and long stretches of white sandy beaches. Spend a day exploring the island on bicycle, catch the bus or train tour and explore spectacular marine life. Bordered largely by desert to the east, Western Australia is bound by 12,500 kilometres (7,813 miles) of the world's most pristine coastline to the west.
