Best Sightseeing Tours in Western Australia

Western Australia can give you the impression that you’ve stepped into another time. Its vastness, isolated regions and sometimes alien landscapes – such as The Pinnacles – are truly a feast for the senses. Yet, aside from the natural attractions and seeming remoteness, it has cities like Perth and Albany and towns like Bunbury that take you closer to civilization and other sightseeing spots.

 

If you’re headed to this part of Australia, there are many things to see and places to visit. You could start your tour with a trip to the north coast and sample wines and local nougats. You can then go to The Pinnacles and take an eco walk to explore these amazing limestone formations. If you prefer a taste of the fine things, a lunch cruise from Perth to Fremantle will be right up your alley. Dine on gourmet meals and witness popular destinations like the Bell Tower and the Royal Perth Yacht Club. There are many more places to see in Western Australia. Check out these awesome sights and start packing your bags!
