In Western Australia, every day is full of unique adventures - soaking up the beach life in Perth, road tripping the coast, or diving pristine coral reefs, making it one of the best places to explore on a working holiday visa. Perth may be one of the most isolated capitals in the state but it is also the sunniest! There's beautiful weather, great beaches and a laid back lifestyle.

Frequently asked questions about travelling in Western Australia

When is the best time to visit Western Australia?

Western Australia is a year round destination and its capital Perth is the sunniest city in Australia with an average of 29°C in summer. Winter in Perth and the South West can get a little chilly  (for Aussie standards) with an average temperature of 12°C from June to August. The climate in the North West is more tropical with a 'green season' from October to March and a dry season from April to September. Be wary that certain places in the Kimberley Region are only accessible during the 'dry season' and generally this is the better time to head to the North West because, let's face it, we get enough rain at home.

What is the best way to travel in Western Australia?

How does one get around a state as large as WA? Well, the journey is part of the experience. Hire a campervan and see some of Australia's most incredible scenery on one epic road trip, or you could join one of our tours, meet like-minded travellers and get to know more about the different areas by knowledgeable guides. The choice is yours.

How long is the flight to Perth?

You can fly to Perth from the UK in only 17 hours on the direct service from London! Plenty of airlines fly to Perth with only one stopover from the UK too and the flight duration depends on your connection/layover etc. Perth is an easy add on from Singapore (5 hours) or Bali (4 hours). Getting to WA's capital from other parts of Australia is also easy as pie with loads of affordable domestic flights from Australia's main cities.
