Western Australia - Unspoilt Nature & Endless Horizons

Discover the real Australia!

In Western Australia, you can discover a great variety of unspoilt natural landscapes. Perth is the capital of this federal state and also the starting point for tours in Western Australia. In addition, Western Australia is a mecca for four-wheel drive enthusiasts. Also popular is the wild flower season from June till November. Get to know the endless horizons of the west!
Western Australia in Numbers:
With a surface area of 2 529 880km² Western Australia (WA) is the largest federal state of Australia. About 2.5 million people live here. Perth in the southwest with a population of 1.7 million is the capital of Western Australia. Broome with ±11 500 inhabitants is the gateway to the northwestern region, the Kimberleys.

Western Australia is an all-year tourist destination, however, when planning one's trip one should take the various climatic zones into account.
In the southern part of this federal state there are four seasons, but in the north only a wet and dry season. The dry season (winter) in the north from April to September, has long, sunny days with bright blue skies. During the wet season (summer) from October till March there is a high humidity. Due to its mild climate the southwest has fantastic wines and other culinary delights.

The diversity of the landscape is impressive: 12 500km of coastline with azure blue water and over 800 off-shore islands; in the interior are the gold fields and fertile farmland. There are still many unspoilt areas in Western Australia, so that on some journeys one will travel for hundreds of kilometres without seeing anyone. If one sees a petrol station one should fill up, because who knows when the next one will come.

Western Australia can be recommended for authentic experiences with the original inhabitants - the Aborigines.

Apart from day tours in the various regions, we also offer longer tours that can be combined like building blocks. You should consider discovering the southwes or the Kimberleys on a short guided tour.
Especially worthwhile is a three week trip from Perth along the coast and through the Kimberleys to Darwin in the Northern Territory. You will find selected tours under the heading Tours across State Borders.
The Southwest
In Perth, Australia's sunniest city, you will come across a relaxed way of life, extensive parks, multi-cultural cuisine & an exciting night life. Fremantle is the cultural centre of Perth and always worth a visit, as is the small off-shore Rottnest Island. The southwest has spectacular coastal stretches, first-class surfing beaches, forests with huge Jarrah & Karri trees, lovely hiking trails and hidden limestone caves. The Margaret River with more than 150 wine estates and small breweries is a mecca for wine lovers. The gateway to fabulous beaches is Esperance. In Lucky Bay even the kangaroos bathe in the sun. You can learn about the lives of the gold diggers at Kalgoorlie and don't forget to visit the Wave Rock.
Von Perth to the Ningaloo Reef
The stretch from Perth to the Ningaloo Reef has contrasting landscapes and fascinating sights, such as the weird world of the Pinnacles in the Nambung National Park. Geraldton is one of the few villages along the coast and has its very own character. The next stop along the route would be the Kalbarri National Park, a system of branching gorges with a rugged rocky coast line. The Shark Bay World Heritage Site became known through the Monkey Mia dolphins. Other natural wonders of this region are Shell Beach and the stromatolites of Hamelin Pool. Further north is the tropical coastal town of Carnarvon near which there are natural blowholes. The unspoilt beaches and coral reefs, which are ideal for diving and snorkeling, can be found from Coral Bay northwards to the end of the Cape Range National Park. Depending on the season there is the possibility of snorkeling with whale sharks at the Ningaloo Reef. The Learmonth airport is between Coral Bay and Exmouth. Exmouth also serves as the starting point for tours into the hinterland, to explore the unique gorges of the Karijini National Park.
The Kimberleys
Broome is the gateway to the Kimberley Region and attracts visitors with its kilometres long fine sandy beaches. Highlights of the Kimberleys are inter alia the fascinating rock formations of the Bungle Bungles in the Purnululu National Park. The Windjana, Geikie and Bell Gorges are just a few of the scenic gorges. The rugged Kimberley Region has innumerable sites of natural beauty, which can be discovered along the famous 4WD Gibb River Road. The itinerary should definitely also include the remote Cape Leveque, which is characterized by reddish rocks bordering white sandy beaches.
