Things to Do in Western Australia

Sharing is caring!

Western Australia covers around one-third of the entire western part of the Australian Continent. It is one of the best holiday destinations in the world. There are plenty of interesting and fun things to do when you are here. If you are looking forward to taking a vacation to Western Australia then know about the top things do there:

1 The Basin, Rottnest Island

The Basin is traveler’s top favorite among the 60 other beaches of the Rottnest Island. The crystal clear water will give a wake-up call to the water baby in you. You will be standing at the edge of the Basin just by taking a few steps across the shallow reef. It will also remind you of the Great Barrier Reef of Asia.

2 Boranup Forest

If you love to take a ride in forest areas to feel more connected to nature then Boranup Forest in the Margaret River Region is the ideal choice for you. You can drive through the forest witnessing a wide variety of flora and fauna. The massive karri trees that constitute most of the Boranup forest area grow up to a height of 60 meters. Wine tasting, gourmet lunches, beer drinking, and lazing on the beaches are some of the other favorite things to do for tourists visiting this region of Western Australia.

3 Spend Some Time With The Dolphins

Do you want to miss a chance to spend some time in the same pool as dolphins? The Dolphin Discovery Centre in Bunbury will make your wish come true. This amazing place is just 170 km from the south of Perth. The discovery center also has an interaction zone for the visitors.

4 Gnomesville

This is undoubtedly the most interesting place you can visit in Western Australia. Gnomesville is also located near Bunbury, so you can visit on the same day as the Dolphin Discovery Centre. Gnomesville is the home to more than 3,000 Gnomes scattered in the bush. They migrated to this place from different places in Australia and around the world.

5 Watch the Sunset from Gantheaume Point

Sunrises and sunsets are always a fascinating view. Especially when you view it from the right place it is a whole new level of excitement. Gantheaume point is a red cliff face at the end of Cable Beach in Broome. It is overlooking a white sand beach. A drive to this beach is worth it at any time of the day but the sunset is more spectacular from here.

6 Elephant Rocks, Denmark

Yes! This is the Denmark of Western Australia we are talking about (definitely not the Denmark of Western Europe). Elephant Rocks is around 15kms from the main town of Denmark. It is another best place to go swimming with your family in WA. The rocks here look like a herd of elephants paddling in the waters, thus the name Elephant Rocks. You can also go for snorkeling here.

7 Green Pools, Denmark

If you like places with fewer people then take a walk of just a few hundred meters around the headland from Elephant Rocks. You will reach the Green Pools. Not many tourists visit this place, so you can peacefully
Swim for as long you want. This picturesque swimming and snorkeling area is cent percent worth your time in Denmark.

8 Adventurous Walk at Hancock Gorge

This is one of the best places for an adventurous walk in the world. If you are spiderman fan then this will give you memories of a lifetime. The Hancock Gorge is in the Karijini National Park of WA. The place is completely safe so your kids can also take a walk here.

9 Quad Biking, Coral Bay

One more Adventure sport to the list. You can tick off quad biking from your bucket list by going on a quad biking adventure at the Coral Bay. It is one of the best quad biking tracks and the marvelous scenery is a great add-on. You can take the bike up and down the sand dunes and even spot many turtles off the famous “turtle cliffs”.
