One of the largest states in the world, with a diverse climate, history, flora and fauna.

Western Australia lies in the southern hemisphere, covering an area of more than 2.5 million square kilometres – that’s about the size of Western Europe and one-third of Australia’s total landmass.

Here, you can experience Australia’s sunniest capital city, whitest beach and largest expanse of outback, one of the oldest known living cultures on Earth, UNESCO World Heritage reef and rock formations, world-class surf, premium wines, and still have plenty of reasons to return.
