Western Australia’s South West is calling

Western Australia’s South West is calling

Western Australia’s South West region is full of diverse cultural and natural attractions, and boasts some of the most beautiful views in the country. Head south of the state capital and you’ll experience white sandy beaches, towering karri trees and much more!


Located less than three hours from Perth, Busselton is a charming waterfront town that is popular among tourists – so much so that is was twice voted as Western Australia’s Top Tourist Town.

There is plenty to do in this beautiful bay, including a train ride on the Southern Hemisphere’s longest timber-piled jetty. Busselton is also home to an incredible reef that formed around the heritage-listed jetty, which can be explored in the Underwater Observatory or through a range of diving tours and experiences.


Augusta is the furthest south-west that you can go in Australia – and the views are as incredible as you might expect. With the Indian Ocean spreading out the west as far as the eyes can see, the historic lighthouse at Cape Leeuwin is the perfect place to soak up the beauty of your surroundings.

Every year, from June to September, pods of humpback and southern right whales make their way across Flinders Bay on their annual migration, making the views even more spectacular!

Margaret River

The Margaret River wine region is the place to be if world-class wine and award-winning restaurants take your fancy.

The diverse landscape of this area offers guests views of rolling vineyards, pristine beaches and, further inland, incredible karri trees that stretch into the sky.

For the adrenaline junkies among us, the region is known internationally for it’s big wave surfing, with more than 40 top surfing locations dotted along the coast. Other activities to get your heart rate up include rock climbing, canoeing and mountain biking – there’s enough to keep you going for days!
