Mind-blowing diversity and natural landscapes make for a truly extraordinary holiday

Western Australia is about half the size of Europe – one of the largest states in the world – but it’s the sheer diversity of natural landscapes you’ll encounter that will truly blow your mind.

The Mediterranean climate of the south has created the perfect conditions for majestic tall-tree forests and one of the world’s biodiversity hotspots. Head north, and the feel is decidedly more tropical, with mighty rivers carving out cavernous gorges and feeding the wetlands of one of the world’s last true wilderness areas, the Kimberley.

The changing of the seasons also transforms the mood of these already striking landscapes, particularly between June and November when Mother Nature carpets WA’s forests, outback and national parks with the colours of more than 12,000 species of wildflowers – showcasing one of the world’s largest collections of wildflowers.
