One Week in Western Australia

Map View
"East is nice," say locals of Perth, "but West is best". For residents of Western Australia, the state has the best wildlife, the best beaches, the more delicious bush and wild food experiences, some of the best walking tracks, and one of the greatest wine regions in the world. They'd take Perth, Fremantle, the Margaret River and Exmouth over "crowded" Sydney and Melbourne any day. It's Australia's quaint competitiveness, but whoever is right, WA is worth a visit.

Save Place
Rottnest Island WA 6161, Australia
There's not too much to do on Rottnest Island, just off the coast of Perth in Western Australia, unless you want there to be! Since there aren't cars on the island, excepting the off maintenance vehicle and one bus, visitors use their two feet or...

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
Exmouth WA 6707, Australia
Emus definitely aren't in short supply around Exmouth, a middle-of-nowhere town in Western Australia, just a short drive from Cape Range National Park and the magical Ningaloo Reef.
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
This beach is a must-see on any road trip south of Perth! We stopped on our way back from Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse. I loved the perfect ripples of the ocean, and that the beach was not crowded, but that may have been because we went in fall....
