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.
It boasts 20,000 kilometres of mainland and island coastline, with 19 beaches that stretch along the coast of the Perth region alone. And, with more than 3,000 hours of sunshine per year, Perth is Australia’s sunniest capital city.
The city’s spectacular natural surroundings are rivalled only by its vibrant city life and culture. WA’s Aboriginal history dates back more than 50,000 years – making it one of the world’s oldest living cultures. Aboriginal-owned campgrounds and enriching cultural tours are waiting to be experienced.
Incredible experiences and natural wonders await you in every region of this grand and diverse State, and the varied climate – Mediterranean conditions in the south through to the northern tropics – means you’ll always find summer somewhere in WA.
Here in Western Australia, you can experience the 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 reasons to return.
