Travel Guide and Tips: Why you should visit West-Australia
Adorable Quokka's, spectacular reefs, awesome marine life, breathtaking scenery, amazing sunsets, ancient landscapes, and beautiful cities, Western Australia has it all.
It is the perfect destination to explore the best sides of Australia without having to worry about crowds of tourists. While the east coast of Australia is more popular with visitors the West-Coast offers a peaceful but incredible journey through a beautiful but diverse landscape.
The West-Coast took my interest due to the amazing stories I heard from travelers, yet I noticed that not many people choose to go West over East. This made me curious to explore the West-Coast and find out for myself if it actually lives up the stories that are being told, or that tourist avoid the West-Coast for a reason. That is when I decided to book a 7-day tour from Perth to Exmouth, and after 7 days of exploring and traveling to the North of Western Australia, I have to admit that it is actually better than I had ever imagined.
Besides the fact that the west side of Australia offers an amazing variety of highlights, it is also filled with surprises. I understand that most tourists visit the East-Coast for the highlights such as The Great Barrier Reef and the Whitsundays but the West-Coast has definitely its own spots that match these places like Ningaloo Reef, Turquoise Bay, and Shell Beach but without the crowd. I haven't been to the East-Coast myself but there were several people on my group who were pleasantly surprised by this part of Australia and said that that it easily matched up or is even better than the East. I traveled to Sydney, Melbourne, South Australia, Kangaroo Island, Down Under and Western Australia and the west coast was by far the best trip I have ever done in Australia.
I saw so many amazing things and did a lot of bucket-list-worthy activities during my 7-day tour from Perth to Exmouth. To give you a taste of what the west coast has to offer I will describe this incredible journey day by day and hope it will convince you to consider traveling to the west coast of Australia.
