South West

Region

One of the world’s 34 biodiversity hot-spots, Australia’s South West is also one of the most varied holiday experiences. It’s all here – world-class wine and food, stunning walking trails and beaches, world-famous surf breaks, whale watching, dolphin encounters, ancient caves, forests of timber giants and captivating heritage.

You can reach Bunbury, the region’s northern gateway, in just under two hours by road from Perth, or hop on a short chartered flight direct to Bunbury, Busselton or Albany. So it’s easy to include a down south adventure in your itinerary, and if the idea of arriving by sea appeals, the South West ports of Bunbury and Albany are also included in many Australian cruise packages.

From Busselton and the picturesque Margaret River wine region, to Denmark and Albany on the south coast, the South West enjoys a temperate climate. Summer sunshine provides beautiful beach weather and the winter months are pleasantly cool and mild – perfect for enjoying the great outdoors and sampling one of Australia’s most exciting wine regions.

Nature-lovers will be blown away by a breathtaking array of land and seascapes, where almost 80 percent of the plant species are found nowhere else on Earth. And adventure-seekers will find out-of-this-world challenges, from the 1,000 kilometre Bibbulmun Track and the incredibly diverse Cape to Cape Track, to the Munda Biddi Bike Trail – fast becoming a world-class nature-based off-road cycling experience.
