There’s something very exciting about driving along the open road with such an expanse in front of you, and the West is best for these kind of experiences.
Jules, Original Traveller
Famous for its long days of sunshine, spotless blue skies and brilliant beaches, Western Australia is a great place to experience some rather special natural attractions. Holidays to Western Australia have something for everyone; The state's capital Perth is an easy-going place with a chilled out café culture, and for wine lovers the Southwest famously boasts world class wineries. In the far northwest, the Kimberley is an ancient landform of rugged ranges with deep, spectacular gorges and pristine sandy beaches that fringe the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean, and for great marine life the Ningaloo reef will not disappoint.
