Western Australia travel guide

4.6
Beaches · Parks · Geologic Formations
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.

Wineries & Vineyards · Caves · Beer Tastings & Tours
Adjacent to the Indian Ocean, the Margaret River Region is best known for the extensive cultivation of wine that to some extent defines it. The region boasts ideal conditions for viniculture, and as a result is one of Australia’s most prolific producers of wine. The area also possesses several hundred caves, six of which are open to the general public. The caves contain fossils thought to be over 35,000 years old.
