At around twice the size of Western Europe, Western Australia is huge! It offers the space to discover yourself and explore local culture, jaw-dropping outback landscapes, pristine white beaches & stunning red gorges.
A unique feature of the state is the extremely large number of endemic plants and the south-western corner is the most outstanding wildflower region of Australia. Stirling Range National Park, about 400km south of Perth is home to over 1500 species of wildflowers, many of which are found nowhere else on the planet.
The world-class Bibbulmun Track runs from Perth to Albany through some unique and beautiful sections of the state. This 1000km Track can be tackled in sections or as one big adventure from end-to-end. For a shorter multi-day challenge, try the Cape to Cape Track which runs from Cape Naturaliste to Cape Leeuwin in the South West.
North of Perth, the distances are huge - and the scenery spectacular as you walk through gorges, climb Mt Augustus - Australia's largest rock or discover aboriginal rock art. In the far north, there is some excellent walking in Karijini National Park and also in the vast region known as The Kimberley.
The easiest way to access the far North is through organised tours which are popular with many walkers.
