Western Australia Holidays
The state of Western Australia accounts for more than one third of the entire land mass of Australia – so that should let you know just how much there is to do there as a traveller.
Starting out in Perth, you can explore this unique surfside city in the comfort of your swimsuit and sarong, that’s how relaxed the place is. The city has a wealth of shopping precincts and attractions and has been bolstered by the mining boom so is looking pretty swish these days.
Venturing out of the metropolis, you may find yourself taking a sunset ride on a camel at Cable Beach – a truly mesmerising experience, or perhaps you might want to snorkel with some marine life in Ningaloo Reef; both of these things can be done for very affordable prices. It will feel just like you’re walking on the moon during a visit to the Pinnacles and the Valley of Giants Tree Walk is a pretty daring experience in itself – those who have a fear of heights won’t want to miss out though – the trails are completely safe and walker-friendly.
A trip to Karijini National Park will have you filling your camera roll with pictures of the has-to-be-seen-to-be-believed deep blue waters of the spectacular gorges and swimming holes. Don’t forget to schedule in a trip to the Margaret River Wine Region for some gastronomical delights – some of the most delicious wines served throughout Australia and beyond come from this very area of the world. It's also a pretty picturesque place and a bit 'honeymoony' if you’re looking for a bit of romance.
Rottnest Island is well worth the boat trip and you will be introduced to some of the world's finest beaches and bays – all just a tiny ferry ride away from the city of Perth. And don’t forget to drop in on the dolphins at Monkey Mia while you’re at it – wild dolphins have been showing off on the shorelines of these parts for more than 40 years – you won’t regret the effort.
