Western Australia Destination Guide

Making up nearly half of the Australian continent, Western Australia is massive in area!   It is also overlooked by first time visitors to Australia who head to the activity packed Eastern States.  However, that means that Western Australia’s vast landscapes are un-touristed and offer many rich and rewarding experiences for the discerning family traveler! This makes any Western Australia destination perfect for everyone.  The most notable cities in Western Australia are Perth, Margaret River, and Broome.

What Is The Best Time Of Year To Visit Western Australia

Because Western Australia is the second largest state in Australia (geographically speaking the area is huge), the climate changes depending on what area you are in.  The best time to visit is purely subjective and really depends on what your interests are and what type of climate you are comfortable in.  The “high season” is usually described as October thru February.


When Should I Avoid Visiting Western Australia

The peak period for tourism in Western Australia destinations, and thus it might be suggested to avoid, is from Christmas Day through to Australia Day (January 26).
