Western Australia

Wildflower State or the Golden State

Western Australia is Australia's largest state, with a surface of about 2,525,500 square kilometres, covering the western third of the continent. Despite the huge size of the state, which is about one third of the continent, the population is only around 2,094,500 people. About 80 % of the population lives around the state capital city of Perth. Perth is known as the world’s most isolated city of over one million people. The distance between Perth and Jakarta is actually shorter than between Perth and Sydney.

The state is a paradise for sun lovers, as the climate is always warm and sunny. Western Australia offers amazing beaches and water activities. But the state offers lots of other treasures.

Fremantle is a lovely port city situated south of Perth. Further south is the beautiful wine region of Margaret River.

Destinations of Avon Valley, Kalbarri, Denham, Geraldton and the stunning Pinnacles Desert are located north of Perth. Central West also hosts Monkey Mia, which is very popular for its dolphins. The Coral Coast region and Ningaloo Marine Park are further north. Pilbara region offers many National Parks including the Karijini National Park.

The far northern area of Western Australia is made up of the beautiful Kimberley region, which hosts the famous Bungle Bungle National Park.

About the rest of Western Australia can be called Outback country.
