From epic beaches to rugged gorges, world-class wine regions, burnt red earth and pink salt lakes, there is so much to see and do in Western Australia!
One of the oldest, most diverse and sparsely populated landscapes in the world, Western Australia is the biggest state in Australia. Covering 2.5 million square kilometres it is shared by a population of 2.8 million. That is almost one-third the size of the USA or all of Western Europe! So, if you like your own space, there’s plenty of it to go around.
Each region and town has its own character. You can ride a camel at sunset on Cable Beach or surf big-wave breaks at Margaret River. Bask on the whitest sand beach with a kangaroo at Lucky Bay and hand-feed wild dolphins at Monkey Mia. And swim with whale sharks at the planet’s largest fringing coral reef, Ningaloo.
Our local guides below include the best of this raw and isolated region of Australia. Plan your next trip with our insider tips and hints on how to get the most out of your holiday in this incredible state of Western Australia.
Hi, I'm Lisa
As an avid photographer and foodie, I love the idea of living ‘locally’ and I'm super passionate about the city of Perth and this great state of Western Australia. In 2021, I began sharing my photos on Instagram and birthed Perth Local which has since grown to over 60,000 followers. Recently voted as the sixth most liveable city in the world, Perth is a great place to explore. Although it’s been my home for over 18 years, I’m amazed to still discover new places every week that I never knew about. I hope through my guides and website you'll discover some of the reasons Western Australia is such a great place to visit or live!!
