Western Australia is the largest state in Australia, covering about a third of the nation’s land mass. However, despite its sheer size, residents mostly live in or nearby the state capital, Perth. Western Australia’s attraction lies in the vast wilderness and overall remoteness of its landscape. No busy crowds or pushy tourists – just take a deep breath and experience Western Australia!
Perth is located in the south west region of Western Australia. With its mild and Mediterranean-like climate, Perth is a great city to visit year-round. Situated around the Swan River, the CBD area runs along a coastal harbour, which provides a beautiful backdrop to the city. For a spectacular view over the city, visit Kings Park, a large park full of lush flora and fauna native to Western Australia. Take advantage of Perth’s harbour and go sailing or boating. Perth also has great beaches and you’ll be sure to find a great spot for sunbathing or surfing amongst its 12,000 kilometres of pristine coastline. At night, take some salsa lessons and dance the night away in one of the many nightclubs in the Northbridge precinct. Choosing accommodation in Perth is cheap and easy with Direct Flights. Only with Direct Flights can you get discounts on your accommodation if you combine your booking with your airfare purchase.
Located 20 km southwest of Perth is a city called Fremantle, or Freo, as it is known by the locals. Fremantle is a port town with a thriving maritime industry. Visit the WA Maritime Museum to learn about the full history behind Western Australia’s marine community. It is also a historic town full of world-famous heritage buildings, including Western Australia’s earliest convict jail, the Roundhouse. If sports are more to your liking, join the locals as they cheer on the Fremantle Dockers or the West Coast Eagles in a fiercely competitive and terribly exciting game of Australian football.
Hire a car and drive further out to the suburbs of Western Australia, such as Broome and the Margaret River. Broome is well known for its pearling industry and produces some of the most gorgeous pearls in the nation. Margaret River is the famed wine region of Western Australia; it is highly recommended that you book one of the many winery tours offered and taste some of Australia’s best wines. Or you can drive out to the heart of Western Australia to the Pinnacles desert or Kalbarri National Park to experience the great Australian outback. Cheap car hires are available for booking at Direct Flights with many automobile options. When booking with Direct Flights, include your car hire booking with your flights and accommodation and save even more on your holiday!
