As one of the largest and most diverse states in the world, Western Australia is never short of unique and extraordinary holiday experiences. Here you will find our list of must see and do's - all bound to inspire and surprise.
1. Rottnest Island
Perth's idyllic island playground, Rottnest is just a short ferry ride from the mainland and a world away from city life. For such a tiny island, this car-free and carefree Class A reserve packs a lot of pleasure into a day. Getting to 'Rotto', as the locals affectionately call it, is a breeze. Just 19 kilometres off the coast, ferries depart regularly from Fremantle, Perth's Barrack Street Jetty and Hillarys Marina. You can opt to arrive in style by helicopter or air taxi, or even cruise across in your own boat.
2. Monkey Mia
Monkey Mia is one of Western Australia's most famous dolphin watching destinations. This calm bay is world famous for the friendly dolphins. Located 25 kilometres from Denham in the Shark Bay World Heritage area, Monkey Mia offers a unique chance to see wild dolphins in their natural habitat.
3. Karijini National Park
Two billion years in the making, Karijini National Park is one of Western Australia's most spectacular natural attractions offering amazing hiking trails through ancient gorges. With massive gorges, crystal clear rock pools and waterfalls, Karijini National Park is a must for anyone with a thirst for adventure. Explore tunnels of marbled rock, clamber over boulders, squeeze through narrow tunnels, paddle through waterways and descend deep into ancient chasms.
4. Margaret River Wine Region
Producing more than 25 percent of Australia’s premium wine, Margaret River is one of the nation’s largest wine regions, with more than 200 vineyards. It’s also renowned as a world-class big-wave surfing destination, and draws many top-rated chefs with its incredible variety of fine produce. Travelling from Perth by road, you can choose to drive the coast or country route to the Margaret River wine region. The quickest option, following the Forrest Highway, gets you to the cellar doors on scenic Caves Road in just over three hours. There’s also the option to arrive in style, taking a private helicopter or seaplane direct to select wine estates. Nominate a driver for the day, or join a guided tour of the cellar doors with a local wine expert.
5. The Kimberley
Three times larger than England and with a population of less than 40,000, the Kimberley region – spread over Australia's entire north-western corner – is one of the world's last wilderness frontiers. Here you'll find prolific wildlife, majestic canyons, freshwater swimming holes and several outback stations, as well as one of Australia's greatest 4WD road trips. Despite the area's remoteness, it's also a place of great food, luxury accommodation, friendly locals and one of the most romantic beach towns on Earth.
