Holidays to Western Australia: An Overview

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.

Perth, the state's capital is an easy-going place of simple pleasures - sailing on the Swan River, strolling in Kings Park and enjoying a sunny afternoon sipping a cold beer.

Original Travel can arrange a variety of exciting activities to enjoy on your luxury holiday including diving or snorkelling at Ningaloo Reef with the world's largest fish - the whale shark- or manta rays. In the south west, we can organise guides to explore forests of ancient and giant trees and in the north you can sleep under a canopy of stars or explore the strange beehive-like formations of the Bungle Bungles with the help of an Aboriginal guide.

The south west is known for its world class wineries, luxury accommodation and forests of tall trees. These taper off to a ribbon of coastal hinterlands of sheltered bays and rivers, often lined with massive granite boulders and stunning outlooks.

The Kimberley is home to the remarkable Bradshaw and Wandjina paintings, usually found together and near permanent water holes. The Bradshaw paintings, dated at more than seventeen thousand years old, are amongst the most ancient rock paintings on earth.
