You’ve never seen the outback like this before. Check out these Western Australia tours and guided road trips.
The great outback state of Western Australia offers endless adventure and exploration to the intrepid traveller. Being the country’s largest state, it’s often broken up into five distinct regions, each offering a diverse environment and unique experience for all.
In Perth and its surrounds you can explore the big city, revel in the history of Fremantle and relax and unwind in a Swan Valley Vineyard. In the South West, there’s the wineries of Margaret River and the ancient rocks of the Granite Skywalk. South-east, there’s Esperance and the Golden Outback, where pristine white beaches and one of Australia’s biggest rock waves (Wave Rock) await you.
For true water babies, Exmouth and The Coral Coast, home to over 500 marine species, will leave you in awe. And for hikers and adventurers, there’s Broome and North West, which is home to the famous Kimberley.
If you have the time, we suggest you explore every little crevice, but if you’re on a tight schedule or are feeling overwhelmed, a tour can make sure you hit all the highlights without wasting a moment.
