Trails: South West

www.australiassouthwest.com

There really is something for everyone in Australia’s South West. For lovers of the ocean, this region offers truly spectacular coastal scenery giving way to white sandy beaches with calm aquamarine waters. Inland, you’ll find winding rivers and ancient forests reaching towards a bright blue sky. Stunning caves are waiting to be explored, and seasonal wildflower displays transform this region into a magical carpet of natural colours.

If the finest selection of outstanding cuisine, premium wine and locally brewed beers appeals to you, Australia’s South West will become your paradise.

Whether it’s for a couple of weeks or a weekend, Australia’s South West is the ideal combination of natural experiences and world-class facilities. You can experience all of this and more just two hours drive south of Perth.
