Are you planning a vacation to Western Australia? Do you want to discover lesser-known adventurous and exciting places of the state? Then there is the list of some amazing places you should add to your list!
1 Bungle Bungle Range
Bungle range in the Kimberley region is the major component of the Purnululu national park. This place is nothing short of a nature’s wonder with its beehive-shaped sandstone towers. It also comprises of conglomerates that date back to the Red Basin. You can go there and witness the marvel that has formed since 350 to 375 million years. This place has earned the status of World Heritage since 2003.
2 Lesmurdie Waterfalls
Lesmurdie Waterfalls is a part of the Lesmurdie waterfall national park towards the east hills of Perth. If you follow the trail to the base of the hill there is a wonderful picnic spot amidst the lush green vegetations. There is also a bridge at the top.
3 Karijini National Park
You must believe me when I say this region has a history of Two billion solid years. Just WOW! It offers amazing hiking trails over ancient gorges. The park will feed your hunger for adventure with its crystal clear rock pools, waterfalls, tunnels of marble rocks, and deep ancient chasms to name a few. Along with pools that are full all through the year the park also has areas reserved for camping.
4 Swan River
If you are also a photo fanatic like most of us have become off late, you will fall in love with this place in no time. You can take a cruise to Swan Valley, the oldest wine region of Western Australia. You can hire a surf cat, throw in a fishing line, jump on a jet ski and also try twilight sailing here. There are restaurants showcasing the heritage of Western Australia. You will feel more connected to the country by visiting the Swan River.
5 The Broome Historical Museum
If you want to have relaxed and simple outing for a day in Western Australia then Broome Historical Museum is the place for you. It narrates the tales of pearl fishing and how innumerable migrants settled in the place seeking fortune. The very theme of the museum is unique and unlikely as compared to other museums. The museum is in close proximity to the Malcolm Douglas Wilderness Wildlife Park and the Sun Pictures(an outdoor cinema).
6 Margaret River
This is a small town to the South of Perth offering various attractions for tourists. The place is well known for its wineries, craft breweries and boutiques (You can shop for Souvenirs!!). Between the months of June and November the waters of beaches and surf breaks host migratory whales. The town stretches between two lighthouses i.e, the northern and the southern lighthouses. You can have a peaceful day out here!
7 Ngilgi Cave
It was previously known as Yallingup caves and is situated in the town of Yallingup, southwest of WA. It took scientists a stretch of 37 years in the beginning of the twentieth century to discover the cave completely. The cave derives its new name from its significance in the Australian Aboriginal Mythology.
8 Hamelin Bay
Western Australia hosts a long list of picturesque beaches. One of my top picks is the Hamelin Bay. It is situated to the southwest of WA. If you are fond of secluded beaches then this is the perfect choice. It is in close quarters to the Leeuwin-Naturaliste national park where you can find a camping site.
9 Cable Beach
This is another well-known beaches of Western Australia. Unlike the Hamelin beach it is full of tourists and more amenities are easily available here. The aerial view of the beach will leave you speechless when you fly to the city of Broome. It offers a spectacular view of sunset. If you are in the Kimberley region do not miss a chance to visit the beach.
