It’s time to delve into the unexplored West Coast of Australia. WA is a world away from the well-trodden path of the East Coast, with its untouched beaches, natural wonders and chilled out capital Perth, it’s got a hell of a lot going for it! STA Travel have teamed up with the lovely lot over in Western Australia to show you exactly what life is like Down Under. Swimming with Whale Sharks or exploring the Pinnacles is no biggie’ for these guys, that’s how they like to spend most days!

So let’s break it down and take a look at what these girls are going to get up to…
