What to do and Where to stay in
Western Australia, the vast frontier of this continent, is its largest state, covering nearly a third of the country. Its enormous size is matched by the endless choice of adventures, from mystical Aboriginal rock formations, to dreamy coastlines, to tumbling vineyards and to wildlife spanning from the giant Whaleshark down to the cutsey Quokkas. Despite these gems, the USP here is its size – you’ll enjoy your wilderness adventure feeling as if you were one of the first. There aren’t many beaches left in the world were you won’t find another footprint, aside from the local Kangaroos!

Experiences in Western Australia
You’ll find a land of contrasts, the north is wild and virtually untouched, while the south is sandy beach heaven, dotted with wildflowers, lush forests, vineyards and wildlife.
The northern region of Kimberly really is one of the last wild frontiers. These are the lands of the ancient Aboriginals and home to miles of red dust and vast skies dotted with soaring gorges and waterfalls and Indiana Jones style 4WD adventures along unpaved roads. Here helicopter and camel rides take centre stage, visit the extraordinary World Heritage Bungle Bungles – striking honeycomb rock formations – or flop in beautiful Broome, legendary for pink hued sunsets and tropical white beaches.
Then there is beautiful Perth, if Carlsberg did cities then Perth would be top of the list with its sandy white beaches, huge green parks, cosmopolitan atmosphere and also has the enviable reputation of being the sunniest city in Australia. Further afield, you’ll find quirky Rottnest Island – it’s the smiley furball quokkas that are the draw here – you won’t be able to resist a selfie – but it is also blessed with a pretty coastline and turquoise seas. The Pinnacles are worth a visit – more wonderful limestone formations in the sand dunes but particularly lovely in spring when the wildflowers bloom. You might even spot a wild Emu amongst the dunes – slightly trickier when it comes to a selfie though!
Further south is Margaret River. Famous for its vineyards but also offers up adventure aplenty with great surf spots, biking, rock climbing and hiking amongst its towering forests.
And of course, the whale sharks at Ningaloo Reef. A thrilling bucket list adventure, swimming with these majestic animals is both breath taking and exhilarating. From April until July, this is the only place in the world where large numbers come so close to land. And from August to October the humpback whales come to play.
Accommodation options here range from Homesteads in the Wilderness at El Questro and simple beachfront hotels to exclusive safari camps hidden in the dunes. Further information coming soon!
