North West

Ancient Landscapes & Pristine Coastlines

Western Australia is a stunning and diverse state that often gets overlooked by travelers. But it shouldn’t be! The north west of WA is home to some of the most beautiful natural landscapes and attractions in the country, making it a must-see destination if you are planning on visiting Australia.

Much of the North West coast is uninhabited with numerous offshore islands and long stretches of isolated coastline providing a huge variety of habitats that support diverse animal and plant communities such as; huge turtles, predatory fresh and saltwater crocodiles, unique marsupial kangaroos and wallabies, wildflowers, waterlilies, panduanus palms, fan palms and magnificent boab trees.

What to See in North West WA

The north west region of WA is known for its wild beauty and there are plenty of places to explore. The Broome Coast is one of the most popular spots for tourists, with stunning white beaches, crystal blue waters and breathtaking sunsets. There are also several national parks where you can go bushwalking or take part in activities such as fishing, camping or kayaking. If you want to get off the beaten track then head inland to Karijini National Park which has rugged gorges and waterfalls waiting to be explored.

Things to Do

Sightseeing isn’t the only thing you can do in North West WA though; there are also plenty of cultural activities on offer. Broome boasts a vibrant food scene with its own unique fusion cuisine as well as traditional Aboriginal art galleries and pearl farms where you can see how pearls are harvested. There is even a camel ride along Cable Beach which offers breathtaking views at sunset – definitely something not to miss!

Accommodation Options

When it comes to accommodation, North West WA has something for everyone. Whether you prefer luxury resorts or budget-friendly hostels, there is an option available for everyone. For those wanting a more immersive experience, camping sites offer a great way to truly appreciate nature and relax under starry night skies away from city lights. Alternatively, homestays provide a personal touch with locals welcoming visitors into their homes for an authentic stay with all comforts included.

Read the Signs!

The estuarine or saltwater crocodile 'Salties', and the Johnson crocodile known as 'Freshies' are considered to be the most dangerous, and are the two main species that occupy the region, growing up to seven metres in length. Extreme caution must be taken in any waterways where saltwater crocodiles may exist. Observe warning signs and if in doubt, don't swim, canoe or use small boats in estuaries, tidal rivers and deep pools.

North West WA offers something for everyone – from stunning natural landscapes perfect for sightseeing and outdoor activities, to cultural experiences that will leave lasting memories – this region should not be missed when planning your trip around Western Australia! So what are you waiting for? Pack your bags and head off on an adventure exploring this beautiful region!
