Dive with the world’s largest fish – the whale shark, snorkel with manta rays, swim with wild dolphins, walk amongst the tree tops of ancient trees, sleep under a canopy of stars in the desert, or explore the beehive-like formations of the Bungle Bungles with the help of an Aboriginal guide. The capital of Western Australia, Perth offers an easy-going lifestyle with the beautiful Swan River and inner-city parks.

The South West has world class wineries and forests of tall trees. These taper off to a ribbon of coastal hinterlands of sheltered bays and rivers. The Golden Outback’s goldfields are the place for historic townships, brilliant, starry night skies, and wide open spaces with spinifex and red earth as far as the eye can see. Marine life, white sand beaches and warm, turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean characterise the state’s Coral Coast and far north.

If it’s an Aussie frontier adventure you’re after head to the North West where you’ll find rugged ancient landforms, remnant rainforests, deep red gorges, vast cattle stations, pioneering personalities, and ancient Aboriginal culture
