Toying with the idea of moving to the south-west? Then here are some of the best tourist destinations and natural wonders that make living in the south-west so amazing.
It’s not just one sunset on Cable Beach. It’s a joyously different spectacle every day. Cable Beach is so expansive you could toast the sky’s celebration of colour from a different vantage point every night of your trip. Whether you want to relax under a palm tree or feel like you’re getting a little closer to the magical display atop a camel, Cable Beach shines eternally bright for anyone living in the south-west.
Delicious unique wine is just the start of the Margaret River experience. It’s unique to Australia for its diverse tourist offering – from stunning beaches, tall-timber forests, ancient caves, highly prized surf breaks and a multitude of restaurants to recap the day’s events in. Order a bottle of premium cellar door wine and drink a toast to this amazing area of WA’s south-west.
Nature is one big travelling picture show from June to November, culminating where else, but in the beautiful south-west of WA. With the largest collection of wildflowers on earth (WA boasts 12,000 species), the plains of the Pilbara are first to burst forth. Follow the floral spectacle to the coral coast, Perth’s botanical gardens and wind up in the forests and heaths of our very own south-west.
It’s what whales might call their ‘highway to heaven’ as they conduct the big migration from the cooler waters of the food-rich southern ocean to the warmer breeding waters of the Kimberley coast. From May to December, people living in the south-west enjoy numerous sightings of humpbacks, southern rights and the colossally beautiful blue whale. It’s an experience not to be missed.
A surfing Mecca for almost 50 years now, WA’s south-west coastline offers up 100 surf breaks of varying sizes to suit a world champ or the keen beginner. A must-see is the ‘Main Break’ where the Margaret River Pro is held every year.
Cycle, snorkel, dive, kayak, swim, fish – just don’t drive! The main attraction of being a car-free island is what makes “Rotto” the go-to getaway for anyone living in the south-west. A ferry will take you the 25-minute journey from Perth. A 24-kilometre round-trip will reveal 60 picturesque beaches and bays, and hopefully some sightings of the local inhabitant (and namesake of the island), the Quokka.
