Why visit Western Australia
Vast and diverse, Western Australia is the land of exploration. From white sandy beaches with clear ocean swells to striking landscapes that have been untouched by human hands, there are many natural wonders you will experience for the first time. There is the longest jetty in the Southern Hemisphere, Busselton Jetty and the world's largest rock formation, Mount Augustus, that is twice the size of Uluru 8 kilometres long and 3 kilometres wide. Otherwise known as the City of Light, the capital city Perth is one of the coolest cities with an expanding culinary scene, a wave of hip new bars and an invigorated arts community.
When to visit Western Australia
Being such a large destination, Western Australia has several types of climates, split between the Tropic of Capricorn. The south-western areas temperate with consistent rainfall in the winter months, while the northern regions are more tropical, and the rest is arid with little to no rainfall. For your next trip, the best time to visit below the Tropic of Capricorn is in the summer months (November-March). But if you are looking for something a little drier during the winters, visit the south during the dry season (May-October).
Getting around Western Australia
You have plenty of options available to see all that Western Australia has to offer. Like most states in Australia, Western Australia has an international and domestic airport which is only a short drive away from Perth. From there you can catch a bus, just make sure you have a SmartRider card to save on fares. One of the best ways to see the sights is the Indian Pacific that will whisk you across the beautiful landscape and could even take you to Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney. However the easiest way to get around is by car or campervan, which allows you to go at your own pace and explore.
Things to do in Western Australia
Western Australia has some of the most beautiful destinations to explore in the world. The clear, turquoise lagoons of Ningaloo Reef can offer the opportunity to swim with whale sharks and even humpback whales during their migration period. Visit the tranquil setting of Rottnest Island that feels like a world within the world where you can hire a bicycle and explore its abundance of flora, fauna and secluded beaches. Or hit the waves at Margaret River, with its impressive coastline, jaw-dropping limestone cliffs and premium wine regions.
