Western Australia Holidays
The immense state of Western Australia spans across a third of the country. With its friendly coastal capital of Perth and the incredible vastness of the wild Kimberley region, Western Australia can deliver the ideal holiday to all types of visitor. The state’s huge size means it is almost impossible to describe in a few words and impossible to see in a few days, which is why we’ve created holidays that take in multiple spots around the state. Lovers of wine, wildlife and stunning scenery should head to the tranquil Margaret River region, while those looking to experience some of Australia’s exotic marine life should venture north along the Coral Coast to swim with whale sharks and see wild dolphins.

Where to Go in Western Australia
Western Australia stretches across nearly a third of the country, serving up larger than life marine creatures, laid-back city living and more than 7,700 miles of pristine coastline. Most holidays to the state will begin in Perth, Western Australia’s capital city. From Perth you can venture south to the bohemian town of Fremantle, and from there take a ferry to the wildlife haven of Rottnest Island. Another popular city to visit in Western Australia is Broome, which is around a 2.5-hour flight from Perth.

When to Go to Western Australia
As such a large state, Western Australia’s climate is incredibly diverse, ranging from Mediterranean in the south to tropical in the north. Luckily for you, this means there’s always somewhere sunny to explore in the state no matter what time of year you visit. Temperatures do drop in the winter months of June to August, particularly in the lower end of the state with temperatures in Perth falling to 12°C. These cooler conditions make for a great opportunity to visit the Margaret River for country walks and wine tasting. March to July is also the best time to visit Western Australia to swim with whale sharks, while the summer months of December to February are best spent cooling off at the beaches near Perth and Fremantle.
