What struck me first about Western Australia was just how sparsely populated it was. I would follow our route on Google Maps for hours and think, “Okay, we’re finally getting to a real town now.” And that town would be, essentially, a gas station.
You’d think I’d get used to it. But even after ten days in the region, I still overestimated everything. I called a taxi one afternoon in Broome, told the driver to take me to the part of Cable Beach “wherever all the cafes and stuff are,” thinking this popular tourist town would have a strip of shops and restaurants. The driver was confused. Turns out Cable Beach has one restaurant (“far too expensive,” he said) and one bar that didn’t open until 5:30 PM. That was it.
WA is the definition of an off the beaten path destination. The beaches and national parks have a fraction of the visitors of the East Coast. There isn’t a single stoplight between Geraldton in WA and Darwin in the Northern Territory — a driving distance of 3800 km (2300 miles)! East coast Australians will often travel all over the world before setting foot on the west coast. To a degree, it feels like you’re living in splendid isolation.
Perhaps as a result, WA locals are extraordinarily friendly, and that friendliness gets absorbed by the travelers as well. If you pass a car, you wave. If you walk past someone, you say hello. If you buy something, you have a conversation. It reminded me of the American South.
I last visited Australia in 2013 and had forgotten so many things that came rushing back. Country music is everywhere (that explains the existence of Keith Urban). Australians call surf and turf “reef and beef.” Baby emus are cared for by their fathers. Oh, and the coffee? It’s the best. From anywhere.
Long before I ever visited Australia, WA was where I wanted to visit the most. It didn’t work out on my first trip, but I was thrilled to get an opportunity to visit and create content for STA Travel and Tourism Western Australia. In fact, I had Western Australia listed in my sidebar as one of my top 10 most wanted destinations!
I’m so glad I came. Because while it was satisfying to finally visit WA, it was so different from how I imagined.
This isn’t a complete overview of the state — I haven’t been to popular tourist areas like Margaret River in the southwest, Esperance in the south, Kalgoorlie in the Outback, or anywhere in the Kimberley in the north beyond Broome. But these destinations are a great starting point for an unforgettable trip to Australia’s remote west.
First off, I had the pleasure of traveling with two wonderful people: Friederike Franz (Freedi) of Freise in Design, my German counterpart; and Scotty Connell of Kimberley Spirit, our guide and driver.
It’s not an exaggeration to say that they are now two of my favorite people on the planet.
As much as I love traveling solo, it’s magical when you click with two incredible, kind, generous, funny, intelligent, talented people. You two make me want to be a kinder person, a more generous individual, a better photographer.
And now: onto my favorite WA experiences!
Taking Quokka Selfies on Rottnest Island
I was so excited to take selfies with quokkas on Rottnest Island and it did not disappoint whatsoever! Quokkas are small marsupials endemic to a few regions in WA, including Rottnest (which means rat’s nest in Dutch — when they landed, they thought the quokkas were rats).
In the past few years, selfies with the adorable, friendly quokkas have become the ultimate WA souvenir. I was determined to get as many as possible. Freedi and I struck out a few times, but eventually we found the sweetest quokka between the settlement and an area called the Basin. He couldn’t get enough of us!
Look at our adorable buddy!
Nice to meet you!
Favorite comment from a reader: “Did he eat ya jeans?” LOL!
Freedi couldn’t contain her glee.
And THAT was my shot for Instagram. (Check out the #quokkaselfie tag for more quokka love!)
This mama and baby were curious but shy. (Note: never touch a baby quokka. Your human scent could cause its mother to abandon it.)
And there’s more to Rotto than just quokkas. Pretty beautiful, huh?
Swimming with Giant Manta Rays at Ningaloo Reef
Ningaloo Reef impressed the hell out of me. It’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the snorkeling was just as good or even a bit better than the outstanding Belize Barrier Reef, with the bonus of the reef being right off shore! We were literally there in less than five minutes.
By contrast, the Great Barrier Reef is a good 90 minutes from shore. Not to mention far more crowded and more environmentally damaged.
This is why more people need to come to WA.
Anyway, the main attraction is swimming with giant manta rays, which can measure up to three meters wide. I was a bit nervous beforehand (especially since we all had to sit on the edge and jump out simultaneously when a buzzer sounded), but it turned out to be not scary at all. These rays are incredibly gentle (no stinger) and we weren’t even that close to them.
Look at all those fish! They gather beneath the boat but they know how to swim out of your way.
We also made a cool turtle friend.
Fun fact: nobody looks glamorous with a snorkel in her mouth.
And finally — sharks. DO NOT WORRY. These sharks are not dangerous. They’re harmless reef sharks. Lots of sharks are safe to swim with and I’ve swum with lots of them around the world. We wouldn’t have been near them if there were any danger.

Spider Walking in Karijini National Park
Karijini has a lot to see, but my favorite part was the spider walk. Yep, that’s it’s name — it’s in Hancock Gorge, just past the amphitheater and before Kermit’s Pool. You wedge your body between the sides, legs and arms sticking straight out, and climb that way to avoid the rushing water, then reward yourself with a swim. It’s amazing for photos.
Beyond that, there’s plenty more to do in Karijini!
Swimming in Fern Pool, near Fortescue Falls, was a peaceful and refreshing experience. (But I’m not going to lie — my favorite part was when a park ranger called out a group of backpackers for being disrespectful to this sacred Aboriginal site and doing the three things the signs asked people not to do: jumping into the water, climbing the walls, and yelling. Sweet justice.)
The fig trees are HUGE in WA. This was the granddaddy of them all, a short distance from Fern Pool.
Sleeping in a luxury tent at Karijini Eco Retreat was a lot of fun! It even had its own solar-powered shower.
I loved spying on swimmers from the top of Joffre Gorge.
Soaring Above Shark Bay in a Scenic Flight
I love scenic flights — either by plane or helicopter. Most of the time, they take less than fifteen minutes, because that’s all you need. But this scenic flight with Shark Bay Air Charters was an hour and fifteen minutes! We got to see so much!
Shark Bay is great to see from the air because the landscape varies so widely within a small region. That and you can occasionally see whales in the ocean!
On one edge of Dirk Hartog Island, you’d see a series of cliffs. It reminded me of the Faroe Islands.
On the other side, you could spot a pink lake!
My favorite view, though, was of François Peron National Park. Look at those orange beaches!
Getting Sandy in the Pinnacles Desert
Nambung National Park, not too far north of Perth, is home to the Pinnacles Desert — probably the most otherworldly atmosphere I saw in WA. These pinnacles were actually once trees, and over time, layers of rock and sand pressed them into their current form.
Yep, Freedi and I had a LOT of fun posing in the pinnacles!
I feel like the Pinnacles Desert could stand in for a movie set on another planet! What do you think?
Eating All Of The Australian Breakfasts
I think Australia is the best breakfast country in the world. In cities and popular tourist towns, there are often several creative, innovative dishes on the menu — dishes you would only see at more upscale or hipstery spots in the US. Australians just do it.
Above are poached eggs with pea and kale croquettes with edamame and Romesco sauce at Isle of Voyage in Perth.
Here are poached eggs over burnt butter and sage pumpkin mash with arugula and walnuts on Turkish toast at Moore & Moore Cafe in Fremantle (a quirky suburb of Perth).
I loved this coconut rice pudding with mango coulis, candied coconut, pomegranate seeds, and starfruit from Matso’s Brewery in Broome.
And here we have the dukkah eggs from Babooshka in Perth: poached eggs with baba ghanoush, halloumi, spinach, spicy chickpeas, and mushrooms on toast.
Taking a Sunset Catamaran Cruise in Shark Bay
Catamarans will always remind me of my sailing trip in Belize. This trip was much shorter — only an hour and a half — but we saw several dolphins, lay in the net, and sipped on our BYOB Coronas.
And unlike our other activities, once we had snapped a few photos, we could relax and just enjoy it without worrying about spending the whole ride documenting it in every way. That was nice.
I love this photo of these young girls.
These dudes look like pirates, but they’re actually guests who were invited to help hoist the sail.
Kayaking Through Kalbarri National Park
Kalbarri National Park is just starting to emerge as a major Australian destination in a nice, well-developed coastal town. Even so, it’s hardly crowded, making it all the better for enjoying the quiet.
We climbed down into a gorge for a group kayaking expedition down the river.
I loved how laid-back this tour was. We could kayak a little or a lot, just doing whatever felt right for us. And because Freedi and I were there for photography reasons, we spent most of the time taking photos! (Also, ladies, if you take a photo of yourself in a kayak, be sure to put your legs together. That is why there are no photos of me in a kayak…)
Nature’s Window is probably the most famous spot in Kalbarri National Park. This natural arch is a great place for photos, and the views from above are spellbinding.
This part of WA reminded me of the American Southwest! (And the country music that blasted everywhere only added to the ambiance!)
Spending Sunset at Hutt Lagoon
Oh, Hutt Lagoon. I already wrote about this in depth — but it was one of my favorite stops on the entire trip. It’s not the pinkest lake in WA, but it was pink enough for me at sunset!
If you’re driving from Perth to Kalbarri, try to time your drive so you’ll hit the lagoon just before sunset. That’s when the colors became much pinker.
A new friend!
Hand-Feeding Dolphins at Monkey Mia
Monkey Mia is most famous for its dolphins, which come to feed just off shore each morning. The Monkey Mia Dolphin Resort has a sustainable, strictly regulated feeding system (and literally everything is strictly regulated here due to Shark Bay’s UNESCO World Heritage designation): certain healthy females are fed no more than one third of their daily intake of fish, and they vary the feedings enough so that they don’t become dependent.
A few volunteers are chosen to help feed, and Freedi and I were both chosen!
I fed this mama dolphin a single fish.
It’s quite a crowd each morning — and this wasn’t even peak season.
Thanks for stopping by, guys!
Quad Biking at Sunset in Coral Bay
Truth? If I had to judge quad biking based on my first 15 minutes, I would have hated it. I’ve never quad biked before — I blame an episode of Rescue 911 I saw as a kid when a ten-year-old flipped an ATV and crushed his skull. Those things stay with you.
Scotty wiggled his bike around and showed me how stable it was. And as time went on, I grew more and more comfortable. Soon I was flying through the sand dunes and loving it. I even asked Freedi later, “I went down the hill faster than everyone else, right?” HA.
We stopped about every fifteen minutes to take in the views.
Some of the coastline on this route is inaccessible by normal vehicles, like here: the Turtle Cliffs.
How amazing is that light?! I was drinking it all in!
The Road Trip Experience
When I saw that there were lots of eight-hour drives on our itinerary, I downloaded a ton of Kindle books in preparation. In actuality, I only read for about an hour in total! We spent our time talking about our lives, listening to music, occasionally getting out of the car to take photos and have a dance party. Scotty would tell stories and I would take notes on his phrasing and cadence, hoping that someday I would be able to convincingly write a character who talked like him.
I loved it. It was everything a road trip should be.
Keep an eye out for “road trains” — huge, long trucks filled with cargo, often animals.
The road is particularly desolate once you go inland. This highway actually doubles as a runway for the Royal Flying Doctors, the medical service that serves rural areas in Australia.
Quick, grab some photos! We couldn’t stop taking pictures of wildflowers and caves and mountains.
Everyone who goes to Western Australia needs to pose with one of these signs!
Chilling out at the Mangrove Hotel in Broome
After the end of the trip, I stayed on a few extra days to go to Broome, the gateway to the Kimberley in the northwest. I knew that at the end of a trip like this, with lots of early mornings, long days, and physical challenges, I would be exhausted.
So yes, I wanted to experience Broome, but more than that, I wanted to lounge in a really nice hotel. Like everywhere else in WA, I was shocked at how sleepy Broome was, making me all the happier that I chose the Mangrove Hotel, which is one of my new favorite boutique hotels in the world. After an introduction through a college, the hotel offered me a complimentary three-night stay for my time in Broome.
This pic doesn’t do the room justice — it was full of modern, tropical touches and such a nice oasis during the hottest part of the day.
There were two natural pools, both built into the landscape.
Be sure to try a Little Creatures IPA — they’re based in Perth! And though I don’t have a photo of it, Matso’s Ginger Beer is DELICIOUS. It’s brewed in Broome and sold throughout WA.
Sunsets on Cable Beach may get all the hype, but I actually preferred the sunsets at the hotel! The Mangrove overlooks Roebuck Bay, facing east. If you’re visiting during a full moon, the Staircase to the Moon (a visual phenomenon where reflections make it look like a staircase is leading to the moon) is best viewed from here. And the hotel was happening at night — huge crowds, great music, fabulous food.
I couldn’t think of a better place to end my time in WA.
There were so many moments, I could go on forever.
The best sunset was this one in Coral Bay.
One of the boldest rainbows I’ve ever seen appeared in Karijini one afternoon.
This pose, on top of Hamelin Pool (filled with stromatolites, among the world’s oldest living beings) was far less breezy and comfortable than it looks!
Kalbarri is more than just a national park — the cliffs were great during golden hour.
The feet on the right belong to a reader of mine, a fellow guest on the snorkeling trip who freaked out when he realized who I was!
You know I actually didn’t see a single kangaroo on my first trip to Australia? I more than made up for it this time.
Shell Beach, a blindingly white beach in the Shark Bay region, is one of only two beaches in the world comprised entirely of shells.
Sitting on top of Mount Nameless, the tallest mountain in WA, appreciating the beauty and feeling sad at the last moments of traveling as a trio with Freedi and Scotty.
Pelicans terrify me, but damn if they’re not photogenic.
And every. Perfect. Glorious. Flat white.
I love this region so much.
Essential Info: There are only two ways to travel this route through Western Australia: either on your own with a rental car, or as part of an organized tour. There is no public transportation in this region. Because the roads are so empty, I urge you to learn basic car maintenance (like changing a tire) before embarking on a WA road trip.
In Perth: I stayed in two places: first the Rendezvous Hotel Perth Central, which was a simple midrange hotel in a pretty good location. Rates from 118 AUD ($88 USD). I also stayed the uber-trendy Alex Hotel in the awesome neighborhood of Northbridge, and I loved the style and location, but they overcharged my card and I’m still trying to get my money back a month later. Rates from 143 AUD ($107 USD). We also stayed at the Fremantle YHA, the former women’s prison, which was a really cool place to stay but had poorly insulated rooms and we shivered all night — I’d stay there in warmer weather. Privates from 67 AUD ($50 USD), dorms from 23 AUD ($17 USD). Find more Perth hotels here.
On Rottnest Island: Round-trip Rottnest Express ferry tickets cost 99 AUD ($74) from Perth and 79 AUD ($59 USD) from Fremantle. You can add a bike rental for an extra 30 AUD ($22 USD).
I didn’t stay overnight on Rottnest Island, but you can check out hotels here.
In Kalbarri: My half day kayak trip was through Kalbarri Adventure Tours and cost 75 AUD ($56 USD). They also have full-day tours.
I stayed at the Best Western Kalbarri Edge Resort, and I loved the suite setup and that I had my own personal washing machine! Rates from 144 AUD ($108 USD). Drop by Finlay’s for a fun outdoor barbecue restaurant. They have pink snapper cheeks and “big ass oysters” on the menu.
Find more Kalbarri hotels here.
In Monkey Mia/Shark Bay: My scenic flight was through Shark Bay Air Charter. My 75-minute Capes & Parks of Shark Bay tour cost 330 AUD ($247 USD) per person; flights start at 59 AUD ($44 USD) per person for 15 minutes. The flights can sometimes be rough for people who get motion sickness (like me!); I was a bit queasy at times but fine as long as I closed my eyes for a bit. I recommend taking a non-drowsy motion sickness pill beforehand.
My Monkey Mia Magic Sailing Cruise cost 49 AUD ($37 USD), lasted 90 minutes, and was BYOB.
I stayed at Monkey Mia Dolphin Resort, which is more or less the only place to stay in Monkey Mia and includes free admission to the dolphin feeding. Rates from $123 AUD (90 USD).
In Coral Bay: My manta ray snorkeling trip was with Ningaloo Marine Interactions and cost 170 AUD per person ($127). It’s technically a half day trip but includes lunch. Photos cost extra and I encourage you to purchase them because they are outstanding and the company uses the most badass underwater camera i’ve ever seen. (Underwater photographers around the world often work solely on commission.)
My quad bike tour was with Coastal Adventure Tours. My Sunset Trek (South) tour lasted two hours and cost 110 AUD ($82 USD). Extra riders (not driving) cost 55 AUD ($41 USD). Note: this is a very bumpy ride. Ladies, you’ll want to wear a good sports bra, and if you have a nice camera, wear it in your backpack because if not, it will be slamming back and forth in the container.
I stayed at the Bayview Coral Bay, a simple hotel without wifi in the heart of the (tiny) town. Rates from 195 AUD ($146 USD).
In Karijini National Park: Our two-day tour was a private custom tour through The Flying Sandgroper (multi-day tours) and West Oz Active (day tours), but both companies offer a variety of tours anyone can join. Freedi and I kept it simple and focused on photography; other tours are more active.
I stayed one night outside the park at the Tom Price Hotel, which was crawling with ants, served terrible food, and I do not recommend it for those reasons. Rooms from 185 AUD ($138 USD). In the park I stayed in a deluxe eco tent at Karijini Eco Retreat, which was unique, comfortable, and had fabulous food — I loved it. Deluxe tents from 189 AUD ($141 USD).
In Broome: Low-season rates at the Mangrove Hotel, which I adored, start at 142 AUD ($106 USD). Broome is hard to get around without a car, but there is a 4 AUD ($3 USD) bus to Cable Beach that stops in front of the hotel. The last one runs right after sunset. Find other Broome hotels here.
Don’t visit Western Australia without travel insurance. I use and recommend World Nomads.
I visited Western Australia as a campaign for STA Travel and Tourism Western Australia. Most of the trip was covered by them; I paid for my trip extension in Broome and Perth, including a media rate one night at the Alex Hotel. Many thanks to the Mangrove Hotel for providing me with a complimentary three-night stay. All opinions, as always, are my own.

Okay, I’m now convinced I need to see WA sometime during my life. And I see you share my penchant for poached eggs! I’m not cool enough for IPAs though. I *am* intrigued by the flat white — we splurged on a superautomatic espresso machine this summer, so I’ll have to learn how to make that. Fun fact: I actually have an ATV license that I got when I worked for the army. I was the only female in the course and by the end we all looked like we had 5 o’clock shadows when we removed our goggles/helmets from the dust. I blew dirt out of my nose for days. So fun. 😉 (It really kind of was though.) Love the pelican shot!
The quokka selfies! They’re SO adorable, I would kill to take photos with them just like you did. Your experience in Western Australia sounds so amazing. I’m jealous!
Love Little Creatures! And I’m officially adding WA to my next Oz trip. And maybe Tazzie.
This looks amazing! I have always wanted to visit Australia, and these photos make me want to go even more badly!
I’d love to explore WA for all the reasons you’ve listed here and more! It’s the only Aussie state or territory I haven’t visited (flights are super expensive for little old Tassie). Northern WA strikes me as similar to outback Queensland, which I think you’d really enjoy as well. I might have to move my dream WA trip a little further up the “to-do” list.
I have just returned from a year in Australia and unfortunately didn’t have the chance to visit WA! But I’ve heard so many amazing things about it and this only cements the fact I NEED to go!! Your photos are amazing, by the way. 🙂
Loved this write up Kate! I’m so glad to hear you had an amazing time. There really is so much to see here, we’ve never appreciated it until recently.
Get in touch the next time you visit. We’ve just bought a property an hour north of Perth with 27 acres of bush, sweeping views over a valley, an orchard, a swimming pool, resident kangaroos and huge guest rooms – the perfect bush retreat! I also grew up down south and would love to take you to visit the South-West – we have plenty of camping gear to go around!
Hope you come to visit again soon!
That sounds like such a cool place! Thanks!
I’m so glad you enjoyed WA. Come back and see more of it – Cape Leveque and the Gibb River Road are stunning.
However, I actually really dislike Monkey Mia. There are so many places to see dolphins in WA – even wandering along the river in Perth, you’re pretty much guaranteed – that I think the hugely commercialized resort up there is unnecessary and a bit of a blot on the landscape. For me, WA is about unspoilt beauty, not throwing fish at dolphins.
The dolphins at Monkey Mia are very different though to the ones you’ll see in Perth’s Swan River – researchers come from all over the world as I think it’s only one of two places in the world where wild dolphins can be fed (and observed so easily and pretty much with guarantee to see them). You won’t really get any interaction from the Swan River dolphins yet the Monkey Mia ones literally come up to your ankles – it’s an experience I’ll never forget!:)
It’s only a slight exaggeration to say that I might fly across the world to take a quokka selfie. They look adorable, and oddly cuddly for wild animals!
I agree about Kalbarri NP looking like the American Southwest–when I saw your Nature’s Window photo on Instagram, I did a double take thinking that you might be in Utah!
Great Post Kate! beautiful photos and looks like a blast! It’s on the list!
The photos are amazing!
I think the manta ray snorkeling sounds awesome. One of my best friends is Australian and she’s always trying to convince me to visit the country, but every time I do videos of spiders and snakes that explode into millions of other (spiders) happens to come up on my newsfeed.
horses kill more Australians every year than all other animals combined. Snakes and spiders only seem to be a _mental_ issue for tourists who’s only experience with Australia is wildlife documentaries! I think only one or two people have died from a spider bite since antivenom arrived in the 1950’s, and California has a bigger snake problem than all of Australia. It’s important to keep things in PERSPECTIVE! 🙂 As Kate will tell you though, you’ve gotta watch out for the Drop Bears 😉
Kate what an amazing post. You make me even prouder to call Perth home. WA is such a diverse state in terms of what you can see and do and I don’t see it as a disadvantage that we are isolated. It’s a shame more people don’t make the effort to see WA, but I’m kind of happy because it keeps the crowds down. Enjoyed this post heaps.
I’m glad I made you proud!
Yay I’ve been looking forward to this post! I’m definitely sold on WA. And, with family in Fremantle, it gives me a great excuse to visit again! (On my first visit, I really only saw Perth, Fremantle, Cottesloe Beach, and the Pinnacles.) Maybe I should tack a couple weeks in Australia onto my New Zealand trip next year… hmm…
Looks like a cool place! I love those new experiences, and your pictures are great!
I really want to visit WA right now! I love the pictures. Just a quick note Rottnest doesn’t mean rat nest in dutch (that’s ratten nest). I’m pretty sure it’s german….
im not too sure either way, Wikipedia says Willem de Vlamingh (Dutch) in 1696 called it “Rotte nest “
Love reading about your experiences in WA – it’s one of my favourite regions in the world, and Coral Bay is easily my favourite spot in Australia! I spent a month working in Broome and had my fair share of Matso’s ginger beer while I was there.. so good!
This is a great post about quite an unknown region! I’ve always been enthralled with the area, and now I finally have some proof it’s actually awesome. Those quokkas though… So cute!!
This post is full of good ideas! I’m in Australia at the minute and have known for a while that I want to go and travel in WA more than in any other region of the country but this has entirely won me over ?
I live in WA and so good to see another perspective, your trip looked amazing! I haven’t done a quokka selfie yet 🙂
This looks so awesome! Kalbarri National Park reminds me so much of Utah, which I love ! I definitely need to go here!
Finally – a fantastic blog post about WA! Thank you for this entertaining and informative post 🙂 My boyfriend and I will be hopping through Perth for a few nights – let us know if you have any must-sees or dos there!
Acho suas fotos maravilhosas, fantásticas
After living in Sydney for three years and travelling a lot on the south and east coasts, and to the outback, I have been wanting to do a west coast road trip. I have been to Perth and Margaret River but would love to dive or snorkel the Ningaloo Reef, visit Kalbarri and Broome, and Karijini National Park. If you love the coffee in Australia – you are going to love New Zealand’s too when you make it there
Well done Kate,
You’ve captured much of Western Australia in this post, and it makes me feel very proud to have grown up here.
We certainly have an amazing country, but WA is super special. I’ve travelled to every place you mentioned on this post, and would have to say many of them are up there with the best.
Following your future posts!
KATE! These pictures are just stunning – as usual, love reading your work. But this one really is amazing 🙂
I appreciate that, Caity! But WA does all the work!
My parents live in Port Hedland and there is actually a set of traffic lights there. Interesting to read about what international tourists think of WA!
WHAT?! I heard “no traffic lights from Geraldton to Darwin” from at least three people! They need to update that!!
such wonderful photos of Australia and drone is excellent for travel buddies!
nice pictures very good!
Kate Please tell me which camera you use for travel photography? I want buy camera please suggestion me. Kate I’m your regular Reader. I’m impressed your travel explain. I’m from Nepal. Please come also Nepal and explain Nepal. Thank you very much
I use a Fuji X-T1 camera and usually use two lenses: 18-135mm and 16mm.
WA is an amazing state, so vast but with so many gorgeous attractions. Karijini was my favourite followed closely by the Pinnacles. We missed the Quokkas & Whale sharks so we have it penciled in for another trip.
Some of our favourite destinations in Western Australia are Coral Bay and Karijini. Your post has brought back all those memories. We are hoping if the borders open we will head back to WA later this year, this time to visit Rottnest Island and the Quokkas. Fingers crossed 🙂
I heard that Rottnest Island reopened the other day! I bet the quokkas will be happy to see you!
I live in Kenya and thought the beaches here were unbeatable but your post calls me a liar. Western Australia has been on my bucket list for years. Cant wait for COVID to bugger off
Also, Caversham wildlife park is a good place to get up close and personal with kangaroos and koalas.
You got some great quokka selfies! We just got back from Karijini for the first time despite living in WA my whole life and WOW that place is amazing hey! Glad to see you enjoyed your time in WA so much!
Such an amazingly detailed blog. I literally don’t need to prepare any itenenary for my next trip to WA.
