Australia Day - Experience Western Australia

Steven Gyford by
Categories: Australia Tags: Australia, west coast
Australia Day is upon us and the inspiration to plan a great Aussie adventure has hit us once again (apparently it doesn't take much!). Recently, most of our attention has focused on the natural beauty of Queensland and the Great Barrier Reef, but today is different as we turn our attention to the West Coast of Australia. So without further ado, here's what's waiting for you on Australia's magnificent West Coast.

One of the biggest (quite literally) and most recent draws to this part of Australia was the announcement that Humpback Whales may be about to become a part of the essential Western Australia experience. Thanks to the incredible preservation work conducted in the region, the population of these creatures has reached a world-high 30,000 in Western Australia - recovering well since the end of commercial hunting in 1963.

This year, the chance to swim with Humpback Whales in WA will be trialled at Ningaloo Marine Park and will be used to help grow responsible ecotourism in the area. Whale shark tour companies already offering similar services will be involved in the humpback trial in an attempt to introduce these creatures to visitors in a safe way for them and the whales themselves. 

Sticking with the theme of water, Ningaloo Reef is also working on a new kayaking trail to make diving even better and more accessible than ever before. The trail will provide an easy, independent way for visitors to experience the reef, marking the best locations to paddle out to and jump in for some of the best snorkelling sights. Guided three day tours will also be run here, where days will be spent developing kayaking skills, cruising the waters and snorkelling around the gorgeous reef.

Whilst you're here, be sure to be on the lookout for Green, Loggerhead and Hawksbill Turtles - all of whom are known to nest on the Ningaloo Coast. Even if you don't see one in the wild, the Jurabi Turtle Centre will be on hand to teach you more about the life and conservation of these amphibians. The Muiron Islands are also an option to see amorous turtles as well as Manta Rays, Dolphins, Dugongs and Angelfish. Swimming with the Mantas is a must for the curious among you!

Head a little further afield to Perth, where you'll find Rottnest Island, a pristine car-free environment perfect for getting away from it all. Home to perfect turquoise bays and top notch snorkelling this is a great spot to enjoy the region's nature in peace. Furthermore, Perth's Swan River, which runs right through the city centre, is perfect for catching a glimpse of friendly Dolphins. You can get even closer with a cruise too!
