Perth & Western Australia

With non stop flights from London, Western Australia makes a superb holiday destination in its own right, as well as the perfect gateway to Australia.

The stunning city of Perth on the Swan River is relaxed, welcoming and easy to get around, with wonderful beaches and year round sunshine. From here you can also discover the vineyards, forests, caves and magnificent coastal scenery of the beautiful South West.

Head north from Perth and you will find world famous Ningaloo Reef and the spectacular National Parks of central Western Australia. Broome acts as the gateway for an unforgettable tour or self drive through the undiscovered Kimberley region.
