Just 30 minutes from Perth, the bustling, dynamic port city of Fremantle has long been renowned for its mix of arty and alternative types. For people who have been to Melbourne, this city is a bit like Fitzroy. It’s arty, cool and has a lot of funky bars.
Exmouth is a small beach town and the getaway to the famous Ningaloo reef. It is the perfect place for snorkelling, diving and swimming with whale sharks. A must visit when you are in the west coast!
Karijini National Park was definitely our favourite national park on the west coast of Australia. The gorges and surroundings are beautiful and easy to reach. In most of the gorges, you are able to swim, which is very welcome when you are in the outback in west Australia.
Nitmiluk National Park, located just 30 KM, on a sealed road, of the town of Katherine is a small but beautiful national park full of gorges and hiking trails. It is owned by the local Jawoyn people and Katherine Gorge is the main attraction of the park.
