About Perth & Western Australia
Western Australia is a state of contrasting landscapes and outstanding natural beauty. Explore the hidden beaches, rugged coastline, forests and vineyards of the South West or the natural coral reefs, gorges and canyons of the Central and North West.
Australia’s Sunniest Capital City
Most adventures in Western Australia begin in Australia’s sunniest capital city, Perth. In this vibrant metropolis, urban city life and nature live in perfect harmony; soft sand beaches and leafy parks meet cool bars, restaurants and cultural spaces. Perth is only a seventeen hour direct flight from the U.K., making it the gateway to Australia and either the beginning of an incredible Western Australia holiday or the perfect stopover to explore any other of Australia’s fantastic cities.
Friendly Furry Locals
Just a 45 minute ferry ride from Perth lies coastal paradise Rottnest Island. Home to pristine beaches, translucent waters and the adorable quokka, this picturesque island is a must on any Western Australia itinerary. Enjoy a day trip here or alternatively stay overnight and catch the sunset over the sweeping bay by Bathurst Lighthouse.
Gourmet Food & Wine
In the South West you can find one of Australia’s most famous food and wine regions, Margaret River. Renowned for its cellar doors, craft breweries and artisan markets, this is the perfect stop before continuing further south to Esperance to witness the iconic sight of kangaroos hopping around Lucky Bay’s gleaming white sands.
North of Perth, the landscape transforms into a rich palette of deep red desert and glorious golden beach. The otherworldly spires and striking rock formations of Nambung and Kalbarri national parks make for the perfect stop on your way to Ningaloo Reef, one of few places in the world that offer the opportunity swim with wild whalesharks.
For the adventurous traveller, we recommend heading into the northernmost part of Western Australia to the dramatic Kimberley region. In this relatively untouched area of Australia, visitors are treated to the sights of cascading waterfalls, sheer gorges, majestic canyons and freshwater swimming spots. This is truly an explorer’s playground.
