Western Australia is the biggest geographical state. It covers a wide range of landscapes and natural spectacles. Bordering the Indian Ocean, the state offers a vast landscape for you to explore.
Kimberley – Broome
The southern gateway to the Kimberley region, Broome, offers travellers a plethora of activities. Ranging from Station Stays or Wilderness Lodges, to 4WD camping safaris and coach tours. Broome is made up of wild and rugged landscape, home to wonders like the Geikie and Windjana Gorges, as well as the peninsula of Cape Leveque. The Kimberley is a wild land of remote and striking scenery spread over huge distances. Combined with an arid climate, a sparse population and minimal infrastructure, the Kimberley is Australia’s last frontier.
Karijini National Park
Karijini National Park, in Western Australia’s Pilbara, has been carved out over two billion years by erosion. Much of the southern half of the park is inaccessible, with visitors centring their attention on the gorges in the north. Here you can discover and explore enormous chasms and marbled rock tunnels, or splash through crystal-clear waterways and swim under spectacular waterfalls. Moreover, keep an eye out for mounds of pebbles, built by the native Western pebble-mound mouse.
Perth, the capital of WA, is a city rich with historical sights, natural exhibits, arts and culture. The lush Kings Botanic Gardens and impressive Swan River/Swan Valley region, make it the perfect base for day trips around the state. This includes to the remarkable Valley of the Giants, the eerie Pinnacles Desert, and the unique Wave Rock. In addition the marine-life rich Coral Coast and the Margaret River region are both a day trip each away too.
Esperance is where the golden sands of the outback meets the stunning turquoise waters of the Southern Ocean, connected by a string of stunning white-sand beaches. The surrounding bush lands and islands bring you closer to nature at its most diverse. The town itself was named after the French ship Espérance, which means ‘hope’. In town you can find fun and adventure with four wheel drive beach safaris, Indigenous cultural tours, island cruises, sand boarding, canoeing, and steam train rides.
