Don't Miss These Must-Do Activities in Western Australia

Don't Miss These Must-Do Activities in Western Australia

Although it's impossible to see all that Western Australia has to offer—it takes up a massive third of the continent—there are some things shouldn’t be missed, especially those relating to the beauty and diversity of the natural environment. See below for our list of must-do experiences in Australia’s largest state.

 

Visit the Pinnacles Desert

A little more than two hours north of Perth sits the Pinnacles, a group of limestone rock formations that create an otherworldly landscape inside Nambung National Park. With its large sand dunes, the Pinnacles Desert has also become popular a location to try sandboarding. Day trips from Perth often include a stop at Caversham Wildlife Park to see koalas, kangaroos, and other Aussie fauna. 

 

Hit the Water from Perth

With the Indian Ocean on one side and the Swan River on another, Perth has plenty of opportunities for boating. To escape the city for a day, hop on the ferry from Fremantle or Perth to Rottnest Island, a favorite local destination known for its outdoor activities such as wildlife cruises, snorkeling off white-sand beaches, and bike riding. Alternatively, explore the scenery along the Swan River and enjoy the culinary delights of the region on a lunch cruise or wine cruise.

 

Go Whale Watching

There’s plenty of marine life in the warm waters off the coast of Western Australia. In Perth, head out on a whale-watching cruise from Hillarys Boat Harbour; if you have more time, go south to Penguin Island for a dolphin and sea lion cruise. The most exciting adventure, however, can be found 800 miles (1,280 kilometers) north of Perth in Exmouth, where can swim with whales sharks along the UNESCO World Heritage–listed Ningaloo Coast.

 

Adventure through the Kimberley

In the far northern corner of Western Australia, the Kimberley region wows with its limestone gorges, sandstone domes, and beautiful coastline along the Indian Ocean. One of the top destinations is Purnululu National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that’s more easily accessed by air than by land. Tours from Kununurra will often fly over Lake Argyle and the Bungle Bungle Range and land in the park, where you can see Cathedral Gorge.
