Some Of What Perth Has To Offer The Australian Camper Traveller
Tucked away in Australia's south west is the city of Perth, capital of Western Australia. It is Australia's fourth (4th) largest city and has a climate that can be described as almost mediterranean. Perth hosts Australia's oldest arts festival anually during the month of March.
Australia's western shores offer the Coral Coast, a miriad of beaches spanning from The Pinnacles all the way up to Exmouth. Right in the middle is the Shark Bay World Heritage Marine Park. Here the beaches are not made of sand, but of white seashells. Be sure to swim with the very friendly dolphins of the marine park.
Travelling through Australia's northwest you cannot avoid The Kimberley - Australia's largest expanse of pristine wilderness. It is the size of California and bigger than Japan! Don't worry, in the North West you will find the seaside town of Broome and its famous 22km's of Cable Beach.
South of the Kimberley is Australia's golden centre. One of the most exciting places you will visit here is Kalgoorlie, one of Australia's most famous goldrush towns. It is still an active mining town today, but don't let that deter you. It is a thriving spot fot pubs and clubs.
If the open road calls you, take a road-trip to Mount Augustus. Dirt tracks, caves, mountains and open plains await the traveller here.
On the border with the Northern Territory is the Purnululu National Park and its UNESCO listed site, the Bungle-Bungles. These magestic and ultimately mysterious rock formations are guaranteed to amaze. A number of small tour operaters offer arial tours over the range.
