Western Australia Holidays

With its white sand coastlines, breath-taking landscapes and exceptional food and wine culture, holidays in Western Australia are perfect for those looking to connect with natural beauty and enjoy a slice of the good life.

As Australia’s largest yet least populated state, Western Australia has been left relatively untouched compared with the east coast. That means you’re likely to find idyllic beaches and oceans that are completely deserted, and you won’t see another footprint in the sand for miles.

Explore on holidays in Western Australia

Whether exploring untouched reefs, encountering unique wildlife, enjoying the surf, visiting world-renowned vineyards or discovering Aboriginal culture, there really is something to suit everyone’s taste on a Western Australia break. The climate is fantastic even by national standards – averaging eight hours of sunshine every day, 365 days a year. You can pretty much guarantee clear blue skies throughout your Western Australia holidays.

Western Australia Attractions

    Kings Park & Botanic Garden

    Kings Park & Botanic Garden offers a quiet oasis just outside the vibrant city of Perth. It’s home to over 13,000 species of plants and stretches out over miles of beautiful parklands. Take in views of the city and the sea, marvel at the ancient Baobab tree and see the colourful birds which call the area home.

    Make the most of the coastline

    Western Australia is home to pristine white sandy beaches where you can spend long lazy days relaxing on loungers. Explore underwater with snorkelling and scuba diving excursions or swim with sharks and spot pods of dolphins as they play in the waves. The best time to see dolphins and sharks is during the summer months when the ocean’s supply of fish is more plentiful.

    Wave Rock

    The magnificent Wave Rock has been carved smooth from stone by the rain and wind, to create an impressive smooth structure ideal for activities and resembling a large wave. Stretching up to 14km high, across 110m, it’s surrounded by bush filled with wildflowers and offers some spectacular views. Nearby is Hippo’s Yawn, where you can see orchids and native flowers in bloom, as well as the Pioneer Museum.

    Pink Lake

    One of nature’s most interesting oddities, Lake Hillier’s vibrant pink colour makes it look like a giant pool of strawberry milkshake. Take a scenic flight to enjoy a birds’ eye view of this incredible sight.

    Shell Beach

    It’s worth paying a visit to the aptly-named Shell Beach, a stretch of coastline which is made entirely of billions of tiny shells. The surrounding area is a UNESCO World Heritage site, and popular for swimming and beachcombing.

    “Roughly nine miles from the small town of Denmark in south-west West Australia, you’ll find Elephant Rocks. This nature preserve is famed for its uniquely-shaped rock formations that look like elephants half submerged in the beautifully clear water that surrounds the area. It’s one of my favourite swimming locations in the country.”

    There’s no better way to get around on holiday in Western Australia than by hiring a car or campervan – and we can help organise this with minimal fuss. WA offers breath-taking drives with fascinating stops along the way. Don't just drive along the coast; head into the outback and rise early to capture the incredible sunrise.”
