Western Australia has so much to offer someone who loves nature and adventure:
- Ancient landscapes
- Rocks created at the dawn of time
- Vast unpopulated deserts
- Towering forests
- Rugged ranges and river gorges
- Abundant wildlife
- The most beautiful beaches on Earth
Most of Western Australia is raw nature on a grand scale - a huge, vast land of intense colours and dazzling sunlight.
With such a huge variety of climates and landscapes - ranging from the tropical Kimberleys, to the arid red-earth deserts, to the towering forests and dramatic granite coastline in the south, there's no shortage of awe-inspiring places out there waiting for you to discover (or return to).
Make your next journey through Western Australia Unforgettable
Do you love to explore, take the roads less travelled and discover new favourite places?
All my life, I've been travelling and exploring my home state - on road trips, boating trips, family camping holidays and fun weekends away with friends.
You'll find that this website is a lot more than simply an information source for the top tourist attractions. I want to inspire you to scramble over the rocks to the next beach (where yours will be the first footprints in the sand), to walk deep into the heart of the forest and to tackle the four wheel drive tracks.

Glen Brook Dam is a beautiful and secluded lake not far at all from the main John Forrest National Park picnic area. On weekends the official picnic area often gets busy, and so the quartz sand beaches along both the eastern and western shores of the dam is a nice alternative place to relax. It’s […]
Kalamunda’s Rocky Pool in the Piesse Valley (confusingly there are quite a few similar places called “Rocky Pool” in the Perth Hills!) is a beautiful secluded swimming spot along the Piesse Brook surrounded by ledges and boulders of ancient granite.

Perth has so many little parks and areas of remnant bushland tucked away in unexpected corners of suburbia. One such place where I went for a walk recently is Star Swamp Reserve in the suburbs of North Beach and Watermans Bay. It’s the sort of place you’d never know was there if you didn’t live […]
A couple of weeks ago I was down in Margaret River walking a section of the Cape to Cape Track and experienced some wild weather on the last few days of official winter! I finished my 2.5-day walk at Prevelly on Saturday morning, and on the short walk from my camping spot behind Kilcarnup, over […]
