ATTRACTIONS: (a few major)
Western Australia is huge! It is the largest state in the country - one-third of the entire continent. It's sometimes referred to as Australia's final frontier.

It's a spectacular country. In the northern part of the state are beautiful landscapes, waterfalls, sandy beaches and more.

The city of Perth is relaxed, but cosmopolitan. Perth enjoys more hours of sunshine than any of the other Australian capital cities.

Many visitors to Western Australia enjoy driving through the state, watching wildlife, enjoying the expanses of wildflowers, the forests, whale watching off the coast of Albany to name just a few of the many experiences contained in this expansive state.
