An insight into the world of travel

The lush south-west of Western Australia offers variety in spades. Well-heeled Perth weekenders make the three-hour trek from the big city to the gourmet paradise of Margaret River; families of adrenalin-fuelled kids hit the Busselton beaches; recent city escapees live side-by-side with long-established farmers and long-haired hippies who’ve been hanging out here since the 70s. While word is out about the south-west, distance still dissuades many Aussie eastcoasters – take the opportunity to make it here before they do!

Life-changing experience
Waking and walking at sunrise on the Bibbulmun Track, with birdsong and a backdrop of crashing surf. Take weeks to walk its 963km length, or a couple of hours to stroll a section.

I havent ventured over to the West coast of Australia yet, but I will definitely be heading there this summer. I’m off to dig out my board shorts and rash vest right now!
