Western Australia boasts more than 20,000 kilometres of coastline, so a weekend away in WA is best spent on its sandy shores. It could be on the dreamy-white sand of Esperance, the coastal outback town of Broome, Exmouth to swim with whale sharks on Ningaloo Reef, or even a city-break in Perth offers plenty of coastline to enjoy. Don’t forget WA’s islands; a weekend on Christmas Island or Rottnest Island delivers sand, sea and wildlife encounters aplenty.
To experience WA’s world-class wineries, laid-back cafes and fine diners, spend a weekend away in the Margaret River region or Swan Valley. And for a nature-filled weekend away, head to Kalbarri National Park, Southern Forests and Valleys or even the picturesque Avon Valley for its patchwork of rolling hills and winding scenic roads that connect to historic country towns.
