Save Place
Ningaloo WA 6701, Australia

Australia's Great Barrier Reef is, of course, world famous, but there's some impressive snorkeling and diving on the west coast of the country, too. Not far from Exmouth, Ningaloo Marine Park was named a World Heritage Site in 2011. The protected...

1267 Cape Naturaliste Rd, Naturaliste WA 6281, Australia
A lighthouses has a huge responsibility to ships passing through its territory, a tall order if you will pardon the pun! So when I arrived at Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse in Dunsborough, to find the shortest lighthouse I've ever seen -- I didn't...
Save Place
3L Queen St, Busselton WA 6280, Australia
The Busselton Jetty is the longest timber-piled jetty in the Southern Hemisphere and it reaches out over the protected waters of Geographe Bay to the tune of 1.8 kilometres. Heritage-listed and well loved by residents and visitors alike, it's more...
Save Place
1 Monkey Mia Rd, Monkey Mia WA 6537, Australia
I've seen dolphins at Sea World and in passing pods while out on the water all over the world, but I've never experienced anything quite like Monkey Mia. Two to three times a day wild dolphins flock up to the beach at Monkey Mia for a snack. The...
Save Place
Stevens Rd, Margaret River WA 6285, Australia
Leeuwin Estate is famous for its outdoor concerts and its “Art Series” wines, whose labels are emblazoned with contemporary Australian art. Enjoy a wine flight on the deck before exploring the subterranean gallery, which exhibits paintings by John...
Save Place
Caves Rd & Conto Road, Forest Grove WA 6286, Australia
There are many caves, of varying sizes and features, within Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park in Western Australia. It's an area known for its cave network, drawing tourists year after year. All are supported by a terrific museum network and...
Save Place
Cleaverville WA 6714, Australia
On a drive through the Pilbra, from the town of Karratha to the local beach spot, Point Sampson we decided to turn off the North West Coastal Highway and checkout the turtle nesting beach in Cleaverville. After 30 minutes bobbing down a dirt road...
Save Place
The El Questro Wilderness Park in Western Australia’s East Kimberley region brings to life an ancient land with an extraordinary diversity of landscapes. It covers one million acres, roughly the size of a small European country. On an Australian...
Save Place
3341 Caves Rd, Yallingup WA 6282, Australia
Tony Howell might be the nicest Chef in Australia. Cooking primarily food that's locally sourced or grown in the garden just outside his kitchen, this Margaret River Chef begins most days by surfing. A family man who seems to have all his...
Save Place
Nambung WA 6521, Australia
After visiting 'The Pinnacles' at the Nambung National Park you can almost imagine what stepping foot on Mars would be like - sans space suit of course. The otherworldly limestone transformations, craters, and orange dust create for an eerie...
Save Place
Yallingup WA 6282, Australia
The view at canal rocks made the long roadtrip so worth it! The wind was at its peak and the waves were so thundery, we were worried that the bridge would give way.
Save Place
Our favorite daytrip of all from Perth was to the Cape Leeuwin lighthouse, where the Indian and Southern Ocean meet. It is at the most southwestern point of mainland Australia. Insiders tip: be sure to take the tour of the lighthouse for all the...
Save Place
Kalbarri WA 6536, Australia
Kalbarri National Park is Australia's answer to the American West, complete with gorgeous red rock, grand gorges and cliffs, and gushing lakes to boot.
Save Place
Burma Rd, Pemberton WA 6260, Australia
OK so it's raining. And the metal spikes that they've nailed into the tree are slippery. My hands are shaking - and not just from the rain! But my buddy Bob is yelling down encouraging words like: "I sure hope you included me in your will"! and...
Save Place
Monkey Mia Rd, Western Australia 6537, Australia
Camping out in our van in our caravan park, we encountered some surprise visitors: a mama emu and her two babies! They were very curious, sniffing around in all the campers' bags and such.
Save Place
Drive down the Cape Naturaliste Road will inspire you to experience what is beyond the dense green bushland. The Shelley Cove is slightly off the beaten path and is easily missed, which only adds to its appeal. I love exploring the boulder-strewn...
Save Place
Busselton WA 6280, Australia
A floating island of tea trees we found while on a canoe trip up the river. It felt like walking on a wet mattress.
Save Place
Margaret River WA 6285, Australia
As a country known for its world-class beaches, perhaps the nicest of them all are rarely visited, or even familiar to the millions of vacationers who descend on the country each year. Margaret River boasts some of the most picturesque scenery in...
Save Place
Kalbarri WA 6536, Australia
We rented a boat to explore the Kalbarri surrounding islands for the day and it proved to be an exciting adventure as many of the islands are only inhabited by wild kangaroos and unforgiving sand dunes. When in Kalbarri you have to make sure you...
Save Place
Jurien Bay WA 6516, Australia
The roadtrip north from Perth, Australia was a beautiful journey of diverse landscapes with no shortage of pristine white sand beaches and crystal clear water. We decided to take a surf stop to try out our boards against the 'beginner' waves that...
Save Place
Western Australia is known for it's beautiful coastline and the award winning wine region, but if you love hiking and are looking to explore other avenues, walk the Bibbulmun Track. This is one of the world's great long distance walking trails. It...
Save Place
Rottnest Island WA 6161, Australia
Rottnest Island is only a short 30 minute ferry ride from Fremantle. It's regarded as one of Western Australia's best kept secrets, and I agree. It is home to some of the most beautiful and relaxing beaches. Trip to the island can be filled with...

When it comes to beaches in Western Australia, take your pick. There is plenty of them, but if you happen to be in Fremantle and need to cool off, Port Beach is the perfect choice. This beach doesn't have a grand entrance and it's mainly used by...
Save Place
Trigg Beach, Western Australia, Australia
Without a question, one of the best beaches in Perth and my personal favorite for snorkeling is the Trigg Beach. This beach caters to surfers and body boarders, but a small majority of swimmers hide away and swim north of the rocky point knows as...
Save Place
38 Grey St, Kalbarri WA 6536, Australia
As the sun set we journeyed down into one of Kalbarri's many grotto lookout points into the most western edges of Australia. Here I caught a fisherman fishing along the dangerous crashing waves trying to catch dinner before the sun gave out. The...
Save Place
Kalbarri National Park WA 6536, Australia
Kalbarri National Park is a bit of a geological oddity and all those things a national park should be— playground for the outdoor lovers, photogenic scenery, rugged landscape consisting of inland gorges and coastal cliffs, and of course is a...
Save Place
Exmouth WA 6707, Australia
Ningaloo Reef has a stronger current than other popular snorkelling spots which means not too many people venture out there, I found the more secluded Turquoise Bay was the quietest and, as a result, better location. Arriving in late March, I was...
Save Place
Turquoise Bay is a shallow lagoon and one of many beautiful beaches along a 50km stretch of coastline along the Cape Range National Park. It's by far one the most beautiful beaches I have ever been to and is a must see for snorkel enthusiasts.
