Taking up almost a whole third of the continent, the state of Western Australia is huge; in fact, if it was its own country it would be the tenth biggest country in the world - larger than India!
There are lots of superlatives to be discovered here. Ningaloo Reef is the world’s largest fringing reef, and Perth is the sunniest state capital, with an annual average of 8.8 hours a day. Elsewhere in the state, you’ll also be able to explore the country’s largest stretch of outback and walk along the whitest sand in Australia at Lucky Bay.
Perth offers a relaxed atmosphere, and combines a sleek and modern skyline with plenty of beautiful flora and fauna; the leafy and vast Kings Park is actually bigger than New York’s iconic Central Park and is the perfect green oasis in the heart of the city.
If you’re visiting between July and November, you might be in with a chance to spot some of the 35,000 whales that migrate past Western Australia’s shores each year. Elsewhere, explore Victorian and Edwardian architecture in Fremantle, enjoy a relaxing afternoon of wine tasting in the Margaret River region, or discover some of this region’s incredible marine wildlife at Monkey Mia. For some of the most breathtaking natural views and in the world, head to the Kimberley region and admire rugged scenery, desert landscapes and spectacular rivers.
