The state of Western Australia is BIG. Whilst WA covers one third of Australia's mainland, it only has a population of around 2 million people. You will find the Western Australian locals more than welcoming, they are renowned for their laid back and friendly attitude. WA is the destination for all seasons. Discover beaches with perfect white sand and turquoise water, surf the big waves, feed dolphins at the waters edge and swim amongst unspoilt coral reefs that are only a step from the beach. Take your camera as you view the amazing mass of wildflowers, wind your way through the tall timber forests or be amazed at the endless stretches of nothingness in the Nullarbor. Watch pearl farmers at work, take to the air to see amazing landforms, enjoy a glass of local wine or just simply relax. There's a bit of everything in WA.
