One of the world’s largest states

Horizontal Waterfalls | Karijini National Park | Snorkelling, Ningaloo Reef

Western Australia has enough diversity for an entire continent. No matter what time of year, there is always somewhere in Western Australia that feels like summer. The Australian state is two and half million square kilometres meaning, Western Australia could fit over ten United Kingdoms. Pristine white beaches, rugged gorges and rock formations, the largest collection of wildflowers on earth, and the only horizontal waterfalls in the world make Western Australia truly unique.

The Coast with the Most

Whale shark, Ningaloo Reef | Wildflowers, Australia’s Coral Coast | Monkey Mia

For a holiday with a splash head to Australia’s Coral Coast! Home to Ningaloo Reef which is the largest fringing reef in the world - there has never been a better time to explore this underwater wonderland with Skywest and Qantas now offering flights from Perth to Exmouth. The spectacular Ningaloo coast is one of the few regions in the world where whale sharks congregate regularly and is widely considered to be one of the best places to swim with
them.

Spend your days swimming with graceful manta rays, or snorkelling over the reef which is only a few metres from shore. No overcrowded pontoons here – it’s just you, a mask and fins, and the most awe inspiring marine life you’re ever likely to see. Dolphins are found along the coast and there are many opportunities to interact with these inquisitive creatures – feed them at Monkey Mia in the Shark Bay World Heritage area or watch them at play.

You’ll also find an array of interesting and enjoyable marine activities along the coastline. Explore deserted islands of the Dampier Archipelago and the Abrolhos Islands or chase some waves off Kalbarri and Geraldton.

Inland, the wildflowers on display in between July and November, the wildflower season rivals the coral for colour and is one of the State’s best loved natural attractions.
