Western Australia travel guide

Beaches · Gardens · Dolphin & Whale Watching
Western Australia's almost 12,000 km (7,450 mi) of coastline is broken up only by oasis-like towns and cities. Most of the state, however, is an arid region of mostly uninhabited, infertile land with an untamed physical aesthetic. The harsh climate cultivates a laid-back lifestyle centered on the coast’s shaded enclaves and picturesque beaches. Australia’s largest state, with an area of 2.65 million sq km (1 million sq mi), Western Australia contains over a third of the country’s landmass but just 11 percent of its population.
