Western Australia: Perth, Margaret River & the Kimberley

Western Australia holidays

Introduction

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.

The promenades and open-air cafes of the Sunset Coast offer a taste of laidback Aussie life and further south you can find some of Australia’s top wineries and surf beaches at Margaret River.

In the dry season (May to October) the region experiences warm days, clear blue skies, little or no rainfall and temperatures between 20ºC and 30ºC. During the wet season (November – April) high levels of humidity bring short, heavy downpours. January to March is monsoon season, when heavy rain and cyclones can bring flooding to the region.
