Situated in the southern hemisphere, Western Australia occupies around one-third of Australia’s total landmass. That’s an area of 2.5 million square kilometres or 965,000 square miles. The sheer size of Western Australia beckons visitors back time and again to explore the huge number and range of Australian holiday possibilities. Those seeking the sun, surf and sea will discover beautiful fringes of sand that meet the sparkling Indian Ocean.
A popular beach to feel the sand between your toes is Cable Beach in Broome. Often referred to as one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline ever seen - Cable Beach lives up to its reputation with 22 kilometres of pristine white sand and warm turquoise waters.
Then there’s the extraordinary outback for those searching for an experience to touch their soul. Broome makes up the Western gateway to the Kimberley region, a spectacular region characterised by ochre sands and majestic gorges. More recently the Kimberley played backdrop for Baz Luhrman's feature film 'Australia' the movie.
In the south of the state, take a drive through the historic gold mining town of Kalgoorlie and get as close to the Western Australian outback as you can by camping under the stars.
You can mix a variety of experiences with a city stop. In and around Western Australia’s capital Perth, there are inner city parks, bustling markets and a cosmopolitan lifestyle, as well as water-based activities like fishing, boating and surfing.
Or if world class wineries and sprawling vineyards are more your thing, you’ll feel right at home tasting the amazing local produce on offer.
There are plenty to locations choose from, but if you’re looking for somewhere to start, take in the breathtaking views, award winning drops and tantalizing restaurants of Margaret River.
So whatever holiday you have in mind, you’ll find endless possibilities of extraordinary experiences, right here in Western Australia.
