Top 7 things not to miss while travelling through Western Australia

Lara Dunston

1. Cable Beach, Broome

Savour a sunset over the soft sands from the back of a camel or with a glass of crisp Aussie white in hand

2. Purnululu (Bungle Bungle) NP

Take a plane or helicopter flight over these stripy domed, red-rock formations, or camp overnight at their base to enjoy them from below

3. Karijini National Park

Walk, rock-hop and climb the spectacular gorges and then reward yourself with a swim in an ice-cold waterhole

4. Ningaloo Marine Park

Swim with whale sharks and manta rays and snorkel the coral reefs to gaze at the kaleidoscopic colours of the local marine life

5. Shark Bay

Forgo the knee-deep wade with dolphins for a bushwalk with an indigenous Australian guide

6. The Pinnacles

A sunrise or sunset walk through this spooky golden moonscape is a must

7. Margaret River

Surf, swim, drink and eat your way through the state’s most beautiful coast and country
