Enjoy the best of both worlds in this unique corner of the globe where golden fields of wheat and vast desert give way to lush, green terrain bordered by azure seas. The largest of all Australian states, Western Australia has a wealth of unique experiences for you to enjoy. Swim with the gentle giant of the sea, the whale shark, at Australia’s second Great Barrier Reef, Ningaloo Marine Park. Explore Margaret River’s acclaimed wineries on horseback or unwind on one of Perth’s picture-perfect beaches and enjoy the plentiful Western Australian sun.
As the capital of Western Australia, Perth is an intriguing destination known for its Mediterranean climate and ideal location overlooking both the gentle Swan River and the sparkling Indian Ocean. Perth enjoys a relaxed, coastal cosmopolitan atmosphere, well-complemented by the more bohemian neighboring city of Fremantle just 12 miles away. The Kimberley region is a vast and wild “last frontier” of Australia, unknown to non-Aboriginals until the early 1980’s. Although the awe-inspiring landscape may be well appreciated by plane, the sparsely populated region is also known for its history and its warm and unpretentious locals.
