About Western Australia

Most of Western Australia's population lives in young, golden, leisure-oriented Perth, while the rest of the state, which is approximately a third of Australia, is deserts pricked by rock formations, farming scrub, eucalyptus forests and green granite mountains ranges known for their deep gashing gorges. Not many tourists venture far from the visitor hubs of Broome, Monkey Mia or the Ningaloo Reef, but many of the best places to stay in Western Australia allow you to sleep in some of the world's most remote comfort.

It's easy to develop a generous understanding of personal space in Western Australia - this vast orange and ochre land is frontier country, and great swathes of it are empty, all the way up to the smooth white sands on the edge of the Indian Ocean. So the few - by square kilometre - inhabitants can afford to keep their distance. Which helps in this heat.

All our Western Australia collections:

What Not to Miss

  • Mining has made much of Western Australia rich, but this is still an unpolished place dotted with remote outback towns which might feel like they come from another age. Even in cosmopolitan Perth you can still sometimes feel the grit of the desert.
  • Western Australia's other natural assets, its chalky, wine friendly soil, and the treasure trove of pearls off its coastline, have also contributed to the state's wealth. But nothing can diminish the distances those who live here have to travel to get anywhere else. Though of course the spectacularly empty views have made W.A. a darling of photographers.
  • Western Australia has a lot more to offer aesthetically than space. The Pinnacles Desert with its limestone pillars sprouting from the sand makes for a mysterious landscape, and the great gashing gorges of the Kalbarri National Park come in more colours than you'd think possible for stone formations. And Western Australia's southern regions are almost primordial in their ancient lushness.
  • Western Australia's size - if it were its own country it would be in the world's top ten largest, larger than all of Western Europe - means you'll find all sorts of climates and geographic conditions, from the tropics in the north to the almost Mediterranean feeling south.
  • You'll also find world class surfing at Cable Beach and Margaret River - as well as world class wines and stunning beaches - and the Ningaloo Reef, near Coral Bay, has some incredibly beautiful dives. Of course Western Australia is an amazing destination for walkers and 4WD trekkers too.

Our pick of the best places to stay in Western Australia range from city slick in Perth to accommodation at Australia's oldest working pearl farm.
