Destinations in Western Australia
If Margaret River didn’t exist, someone with an active imagination would have made it up. Just three hours south of Perth, the region mingles natural beauty with phenomenal dining and over 120 wineries that produce a quarter of Australia’s best bottles.
The tourist hordes may head for Queensland’s Great Barrier Reef, but those in the know are talking up Ningaloo – a remote yet ravishing reef off the coast of WA where you can swim among rainbow fish and psychedelic coral just metres from shore.
Perth may be among the world’s most isolated cities – surrounded by miles of mining territory – but it’s far from out of touch. Galleries, theatres and bars are scattered throughout, the foodie scene is superlative and beaches are beautiful.
One of the world’s few remaining patches of wilderness, this remote patch of Western Australia is a rugged land of plunging waterfalls, jagged gorges and lush tropical flora.

Tales from our travels
Treat yourself to an adventure on Great Southern Rail’s legendary Ghan train, which plies the route between Adelaide and Darwin (two nights, three days). Boasting three classes of luxurious carriages, this classic train traverses the Adelaide Plains and majestic Flinders Ranges before hitting the Red Centre. Take Charley’s tip and disembark mid-way to discover Uluru. The journey from Adelaide to Alice Springs takes one night and two days. From Alice it’s a 55-minute flight to Ayers Rock Airport near Yulara, or a four-and-a-half hour drive – book a 4WD hire-car or take an AAT Kings coach.
