As its name shows, Western Australia is the most western part of Australia. It is bounded by the Indian Ocean on west, by the Southern Ocean on the south, by the Timor Sea on the north and by the Northern Territory and South Australia on the east. The state is separated from Indonesia by the narrow Timor Sea and from Antarctica by the Southern Ocean. This is the largest state in Australia – 2 400km long from north to south, 12 500km long coastline and around 2 500 000 sq km total territory – one-third of Australia.

Western Australia

Western Australia is pretty different from the other states. It is covered mainly in red dust and deserts, but it contains most of the mineral wealth of Australia – uranium, coloured diamonds, pearls. It also has a really long coastline with beaches and coral reefs which provides visitors with great surfing opportunities. Also there are forests and limestone caves in the southern parts.
The state can be separated into several regions. The Kimberley region is a wild region with red soil, deep gorges and waterfalls and sandy coastline. There you can see the Boab Prison Tree (used as a lock-up in the 19th century), the resort of Broome (where pearls were obtained), crocodiles at Geikie Gorge, the Karijini National Park and more.
The Gascoyne region where one can visit the Shark Bay World Heritage area, the Ningaloo Marine Park, the Ningaloo Reef and Monkey Mia.
The Mid-West region where many wildflowers can be observed from August to November.
The Goldfields where gold used to be mined.
The region of the capital Perth, located on the Swan River. The city has not only modern buildings and sky scrapers, but also buildings in colonial style with many attractions to see.
Nearby is the Peel region which has many sport facilities – from golf to surfing.
Also you can visit the Golden Heartlands, the South-West (where wine is produced), the Great-Southern region and Esperance.
Although Western Australia is the largest state, is has very little population – 1.7 million people most of whom live in the capital Perth (1.3 million). The small density of the population is due to the large amount of desert areas, not suitable for cultivation.
Check out our recommended accommodation in the city of Perth. There are some amazing hotels such as Crown Perth which has a huge variety of entertainment to make your trip enjoyable.
