Western Australia holidays
Western Australia is wild, vast and untouched. The west’s rugged Indian Ocean coastline offers stunning unspoilt beaches; its huge red-dust interiors a taste of the outback Australia of myth and legend; while its relaxed capital Perth - one of the most isolated cities on earth - is vibrant and modern.
The spectacular landscapes of the remote Kimberley region are among Australia’s best, while the experience of diving with the hundreds of tropical fish and giant whale sharks at the well-protected Ningaloo Reef or wild dolphins at Monkey Mia will be remembered for a lifetime.
