Western Australia Travel Tips & Suggestions

The two bakeries in town both claim to be "The Original Lancelin Bakery." My money goes to the one near the park as it has a shadehouse eatery which is nice to sit in and look at your maps while chowing down. Here's my big tip: buy a big round wholemeal roll (better for you) and stick your pie in it :-) with sauce. …
Kalgoorlie is a place you'll either love or hate. I loved it. It was my home for only 3 months but will always be a part of me.
Seriously, don't miss Broome, cancel everything else and go there. It's far better than anywhere on the east coast or west. It rules! I stayed there for a month out of four that I had to do Australia, wish I'd stayed longer!
Bunbury is an amazing city with excellent opportunites to see beautiful dolphins right before your eyes.
The biggest attraction to Shark Bay is the area of Monkey Mia, which is known for its friendly dophins. Denham is also in Shark Bay and it's the nearest town to Monkey Mia (at about 25 Km away).

We spent a great month in Augusta a couple of years ago (as part of a 3 month journey around SW Australia). We started in a caravan (which was great), and we migrated to a rented a house from an estate agency and extended our visit for another three weeks. We were most impressed by the friendly and welcoming attitude …
Perth is the best city in Oz. It's so laid back, with loads of decent beaches, pubs, clubs, and decent weather.
I stayed in Esperance for five weeks in 2000 and loved it -- the wonderful beaches and amazing colour of the sea, the hospitality of the residents, The Cape Le Grand area, lucky beach, twilight cove, and salmon leap. I hired a bike several times and had some great rides on the boardwalk/beach. They have very friendly …
Pemberton is a great town, plenty to do.
Coral Bay is the most beautiful place I've ever been. I recommend the coral veiwing and snorkelling tour. And go and walk with the sharks at the south point of the bay, it's a great experience.
I've been in Kalbarri for 5 days and i found hard to leave: it's a very pretty and quiet place. If you go there, don't miss a tour of the area: it's beautiful!
Albany has five National Parks and two Natural Reserves next door. It has a combination of squeaky white, deserted beaches with the bluest water, wild rocky coastlines with massive waves, and whale spotting in winter.

Fremantle is a breath of fresh air. It has a quirky vibe, anything goes! Beautiful climate, beaches, historic buildings... Here's my TOP 10 to-do's for Freo: (in no order) 1. Fremantle Markets, get a beer at the market bar and listen to the buskers. 2. Definitely do the night-time Prison tour, its excellent. 3. …
Exmouth is AmAzInG. The Ningaloo Reef is located in The Cape Range National Park far far far away from town, but the good news is that The Ningaloo Reef Retreat does a shuttle bus there. I don't want to tell you my favourite spot as I share it with the likes of my middle brother and my best mate, but here's some food …

Exmouth is a small, quiet, and remote coastal town in the North of Western Australia, approximately halfway between the state capital, Perth, and the popular resort town, Broome.

Augusta is a small coastal town located in the South West of Western Australia, not too far from the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park and the wine region of Margaret River. Though only a small town, Augusta still has a wide selection of activities, restaurants, cafes, shops, supermarkets, and bars. There are many …
Lancelin is a small town located approximately one hundred twenty-seven kilometres north of Perth, in a sheltered bay by the Indian Ocean. The beach is gorgeous here -- crystal-clear with lots of beautiful soft white sand -- and if you visit outside of major holiday periods, it's refreshingly peaceful and unspoilt. …
Margaret River is the coolest little hippie town surrounded by vineyards, breweries, and some of the most beautiful raw beaches you will find in Australia.
