Experiential journeys will make you a storyteller
About Western Australia

Western Australia (WA) is often regarded as Australia’s final frontier. Reason? Perth’s distinction as the most secluded capital city, immense dimensions and its meagre population. Together all this account for a spectacular finale to what Australia has on offer. Up in the north, you’ll come across just about every type of photogenic landscape. Near the obscure town of Broome on Cable Beach, you can experience the flaming red sunsets while at Karijini National Park you’ll experience scenic waterfalls and gorges. In the South West end, you’ll come across equally expansive wildflowers, impressive beaches and lush green forests brimming with life. For surfing and water sports lovers, Margaret River is the ideal spot. Further, the connoisseur grub of the restaurants nearby coupled with world class finely crafted wines will please every visitor. Irrespective of where you go in WA, wildlife opportunities are extra ordinary. Off the coast of Albany, you can spot the migrating whale pods, enjoy the one of a kind flora and fauna that precedes the russet-red outback and feed, watch and play with the dolphins at Monkey Mia. However, it does not end with the flora and fauna. Neighbouring Fremantle and Perth are both metropolitan cities that have retained its lax and laid back feel which usually comes from the abundant beaches and parks. On top of all this, Western Australia is huge enough to get lost in. So, jump in and explore WA on your next vacation.
