Geography

Western Australia's 2.5 million square kilometers covers a third of the country and its 12900 kilometre coastline is surrounded by two of the world's biggest oceans - the Indian Ocean and the Southern Ocean. The State averages more hours of sunlight per year than any other state in Australia and covers five climatic zones.

With the tropical climate, turquoise waters and spectacular gorges in the north, to the Mediterranean climate, wineries and forests in the South West, Western Australia varies vastly from region to region and offers something for everyone. Western Australia's South-West was internationally recognised as one of the world's most desirable holiday destinations by leading travel guide company Lonely Planet, featuring in its Best in Travel publication's "world's top 10 regions to visit in 2010" list.
