Western Australia is Australia's largest state, geographically speaking. If flying into Perth, its capital city, from elsewhere in Australia or the world, you certainly get the sensation of having travelled far across Australia's vast land mass. Due to the distance between places of interest, a hire car is absolutely the best way to get around, for instance it is a whole 23 hours' drive from Perth to the tourist town of Broome. The searing temperatures in summer also make air-con essential! There is so much to see, from the buzz of Perth city, to the charm of Fremantle along the Swan River. Live like a gourmand with the produce and fine wines of the Margaret River region. Broome is on the edge of the Kimberley region, a pearling town where you can ride camels on the beach. Break up the epic drive there from Perth, by sticking to the coast, and visiting the world heritage area of Shark Bay. Wild bottlenose dolphins play in the shallows every morning at Monkey Mia, and you can join them. So what are you waiting for? Book now and drive into the sunset!
