Western Australia may be big - but it's very easy to travel within the State.
Travel by Tour

Major coach and rail services offer hop-on hop-off packages, allowing visitors to coordinate their flexible itineraries.
Another option is to purchase a range of 'travel passes', which provide flexible travel on coach and rail services within the state, subject to certain conditions. Most passes are based on distance travelled over a designated period of one, two or three months and are popular with international travellers.
Some coach tours will also drop off at designated points along the route, providing the benefits of a guided tour with the option to get off and travel independently.
Transwa is a good source of information for regular bus services around the State.
Or alternatively, use Transport Search.
Air travel is often the fastest way to go and also offers the chance for an aerial view. Commercial jet services operate between major centres like Albany, Esperance, Exmouth, Kalgoorlie, Geraldton, Karratha, Broome, and Kununurra.
While most offer regular advertised passenger services, others provide regular charter flights to Bunbury, Margaret River and the northern coastal resorts of Monkey Mia and Kalbarri.
Some operators will fly at lower altitudes for 'flight-seeing', so check with the airline and local visitor centres to determine the best value and experience.
Driving holidays are one of the best ways to experience the wide open spaces and unique landscapes of Western Australia. Rental cars and motorhomes are readily available and require a valid driver's license. While international licenses are not required, they are recommended.
Visitors will find a huge range of national and international rental brands and special offers, so shop around for the best deal. Ensure quoted costs include insurance, taxes and other charges before taking delivery.
