Nature and Wildlife

Our characteristic landscapes and our unique plants and animals bring thousands of tourists to Perth every year. As the largest state in Australia – and one of the largest land regions in the world – Western Australia has several climates and a spectacular range of places to explore, from red deserts to towering forests and glittering tropical beaches.

Here you can swim with dolphins, walk in the treetops of an ancient forest, go whale watching, witness coral spawning, explore prehistoric caves and still watch the sun set over the Indian Ocean every night.

We welcome you to explore the natural beauty of Western Australia.
