Covering an area that is considered larger than even Africa’s largest country, Western Australia encompasses the country’s well-kept holidaying secret. The territory covers an area that takes in nearly a million square miles of land and most of that area is sparsely populated, with the majority of the states’ population living in the southwest corner in and around the major city of Perth.
Western Australia is mostly a land defined by nature and it is one that is quickly becoming a destination of increased popularity, drawing a high amount of visitors each year. This due to a number of reasons – Western Australia has a number of diverse landscapes which you will leave you breathless; from the golden beaches of the western coastline where the Indian Ocean gently laps on to the shore, the meadows of wild flowers in the southern areas of the state or the stretches of barren outback that encompass the central areas of the state.
Perth is located on the western coast of Australia and is considered to be one of the world’s most remote capitals. The city, however, is a thriving centre and is a hive of activity. It has a burgeoning cultural scene as well as a fantastic laid-back atmosphere.
Perth is a city where you do not have to travel far to witness the splendid scenery of Western Australia. There are remote townships and villages along the coastline that will charm and interest you due to their sheer beauty. There is also a fantastic array of sights to witness such as Monkey Mia at Shark Bay where the world-famous dolphin resort allows you to see its majestic residents up close.
There are amazingly stunning destinations such as the city of Freemantle located at the mouth of the Swan River, where the pristine beaches serve as a haven for those who want to relax. The town of Broome is located in the northern part of Western Australia and features the famous Cable Beach and also the red sand beaches of Roebuck Bay.
The southern areas of the state feature rolling meadows complete with vivid colours and brought about by 12,000 individual species of wildflowers that flourish in the state.
Western Australia offers you everything you could possibly want from an Australian holiday – beaches, rolling landscapes, beautiful villages and the adventurous outback – discover a different side to Australia.
A quite enormous state and one that is easily the largest within Australia, Western Australia encompasses everything you could ever want from a holiday ‘down under’. There is no doubting that a holiday to Western Australia is a unique opportunity to see the very best of what Australia has to offer.
With the majority of the states’ population located in the south-western corner in the state capital of Perth, you’ll practically have the whole state to yourself. The state is utterly blissful and is one where you can enjoy the wonderfully exquisite waters of the Indian Ocean as well as some of the finest beaches on Earth, not to mention the rolling meadows covered in countless species of wildflower, to the gorgeous red soil landscapes of the outback.
A holiday to Western Australia is like no other in the world as the coastline is uniquely beautiful, with landscapes that will leave you utterly breathless.

Western Australia is the country’s largest state and takes up most of west side of the island. There is a huge range of activities on offer in this part of the country, so you’ll want to pack something to suit every and any occasion. We’d recommend a beach outfit, a city sightseeing outfit, a hiking outfit (with reliable backpack and flask, and then an evening outfit for nights out. The range of stuff you’ll need truly reflects how diverse this part of Australia can be.
Pack your layers according to what season you’ll visiting during. Summer time (December to March) tends to be very hot and dry – so leave the umbrella at home. Winter however tends to be wet and mild, so you may want that umbrella (and an anorak) after all.
As with all of Australia, we’d also recommend packing insect repellent too – because you can never be too careful.
The summer months in Perth and Western Australia tend to be very hot and dry, with temperatures reaching an average high of 31 °C in the capital Perth.
