About the Region
Western Australia is famous for its long days of sunshine, spotless blue skies and brilliant beaches - making it a perfect year-round Australian holiday destination.
It is a land blessed with spectacular diversity where the deep reds of ancient interior rock formations contrast with the sparkling blue of the Indian and Southern Oceans and the lush greenery of the stunning southern regions.
The big variety of landscapes and climates in Western Australia - from the tropical north to the temperate south – provides equally diverse holiday experiences.
Whilst you are here why not enjoy some of the beautiful tourist locations that WA has to offer.
Rottnest Island’s unique natural attractions, fun family activities and amazing tours make it Western Australia’s premier island destination and winner of the “Major Tourism Attraction“ award for the past two years.
With 63 beaches, superb snorkelling sites, friendly quokkas, 6,500 years of history to discover and 50 kilometres of roads to explore on a guided tour, bus or bike, you’ll be spoilt for choice when you step off the ferry. So plan ahead and check out the attractions, activities and tours on offer at Western Australia’s Rottnest Island at www.rottnestisland.com
The Island is situated just 19 km off the coast from Fremantle, and clear views from Thomson Bay settlement to the Perth city skyline and lights at night reinforce the feeling of being so close, and yet a world apart from the day-to-day bustle of city life.
The Island is 11kms long and 4.5kms and is fringed by rocky headlands, reefs and sweeping white sandy bays and is only a 25 minute ferry ride from the mainland. .
