While most visitors head to Sydney and the East Coast, more isolated Western Australia can get overlooked. Quieter and arguably with just as much to offer –possibly even more – Australia’s Western state is home to gorgeous coastline, ruggedly beautiful national parks and some vibrant, cosmopolitan cities.
