Western Australia is known for its white beaches, expansive outback and having one of the oldest living cultures on earth. With so much to see and explore, it can sometimes be hard to narrow down exactly what to do when travelling the state. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of the top must-see destinations across Western Australia.
Topping the list is Australia’s Coral Coast, home to the Monkey Mia dolphins, this reserve is located on the eastern shore of Peron Peninsula. Famous for their habitual wild dolphins who swim daily to the shores to greet and interact with humans, these special dolphins attract thousands of tourists to Australia’s Shark Bay region each year. Enjoy a magical face-to-face experience with a bottlenose dolphin, hand-feed the gentle creatures or stop into the Information Centre to learn more about the Shark Bay World Heritage Area.
Purnululu National Park
Spanning almost 240,000 hectares, Purnululu National Park contains one of the most striking geological landmarks in Western Australia, offering a remote experience for those looking to hike and explore. The Bungle Bungle Range boasts orange and black stripes that resemble a beehive and is one of the area’s main attractions. There are two campgrounds in the park, which are caravan friendly and there is plenty to discover by vehicle and on foot.
Karijini National Park
Just north of the Tropic of Capricorn in the Hamersley Range, this national park is Western Australia’s second largest national park, sitting in at almost 630,000 hectares. Defined as a topical semi-desert climate, the ideal times to visit are early spring, winter and late autumn (although it can get frosty during wintertime at night). There are two camping locations for overnight stays, so bring your camper trailer and enjoy the beautiful scenery.
Cape to Cape Track
Running for 123 kilometres along the Leeuwin-Naturaliste Ridge in far southwest Australia, this trail features spectacular coastal scenery and abundant forestry. Explore caves, cliffs, rock formations and headlands in addition to the blossoming display of vegetation and flowers. Experience the joys of beachfront camping and discover the beauty of far south west Western Australia.
One of Australia’s largest waves is the furthest from the ocean. Wave Rock rises above the outback plan and is over 2,7000 million years old and sits as one of Australia’s most popular tourist destinations. Situated just a 340-kilometre drive from Perth, this scenic four-hour drive features picturesque farmlands and wide vistas of canola and wheat fields. Just outside Hyden, there are plenty of wildlife parks filled with koalas and white kangaroos.
Located in Western Australia’s north west in the crystal-clear blue waters of Talbot Bay, these powerful tides bring tourists from all over the world. Considered one of the greatest natural wonders of the world, Horizontal Falls is a must-see attraction in Western Australia. While the waterfall is not accessible by vehicle, you can take to the air or sea to view the spectacular site.
