Western Australia Weekend Getaways

As one of the most diverse areas of Australia, Western Australia will give you countless opportunities to experience incredible landscapes of mountains, deserts, forests, and coasts. Western Australia is a massive state so it has a variety of climates, but it is often regarded as the sunniest state in Australia.

As the capital of Western Australia, Perth has well-maintained parks, rivers and an attractive skyline of skyscrapers. The Darling Ranges are located just outside of the city and offer enticing challenges for bushwalkers. From Perth, you may also access Rottnest Island, known for its rocky coasts, clear sheltered bays and quokkas. Lovers of good wine will want to visit Margaret River, the prime wine region of Western Australia. The beaches of Margaret River are also some of the most popular surfing locations in the world. Experienced bushwalkers will appreciate the rough and diverse landscapes of Karijini National Park with its rocky terrain adorned with colourful wildflowers. Adventurers who enjoy the serenity of the ocean may visit Ningaloo Marine Park to snorkel with over 500 species of fish and over 200 species of coral. Kununurra is an area of roaring rivers and massive bodies of water.
