Western Australia

Western Australia has much to offer the camping and caravanning public!

Western Australia is the largest state in the country with a total land area of 2,527,013 square kilometres. It occupies almost a third of the total land mass of the Australian continent and features vast and diverse landscapes. Visit the rugged outback or the lush wine growing areas and everything between. As a result of being home to an amazing array of colourful wildflowers, it is often referred to as the Wildflower State.

The 12500 kilometres of coastline have some of the most beautiful beaches you can find anywhere! Many have pure white sand coupled with crystal clear water. Visit the stunning UNESCO World Heritage listed Ningaloo Reef and discover a wide variety of marine life, including the whale shark.

In the south of the state you will find many of the 150 wineries that call WA home. The Margaret River region has the perfect climate for grape growing and as a result the wines made in the region are world class. It is also home to a burgeoning craft beer industry.

A visit to the Goldfields region will not disappoint. Kalgoorlie is home to one of the country’s largest gold mines, the Kalgoorlie Super Pit. The mine measures 1.5 km wide, 3.5 km long and 600 metres deep and is large enough to be visible from space!

The UNESCO World Heritage listed Purnululu National Park is in the Kimberley region and is home to the Bungle Bungle Range. These banded bee hive shaped domes are a striking natural feature.

Broome, in the north of the state, is home to a pearling industry that dates back to the 1880’s. In the mid 1950’s the first cultured pearl farm opened. Today, Broome’s cultured pearl industry produces pearls that are well known to be some of the worlds finest!

In summary

The sheer size of Western Australia is astonishing and each corner of the state has something undeniably unique to offer. Above all, the opportunities for caravan and camping adventures are endless.
