Western Australia: Cities and Vacations

Western Australia Vacations: information about the history of Western Australia and cities.

Reviews

3/7/2010
Overall rating: 8

Western Australia has an area of 2,050,900 sq km and a population of around 2.5 million. Its capital city is Perth.

Western Australia is the continent’s largest state (in terms of area) and covers nearly one-third of mainland Australia. It is bordered by the states of South Australia and the Northern Territory. The terrain mostly comprises a low plateau with less relief features and an average altitude of approximately 400 m. The remainder of the state is semi-arid. The national parks, however, have a plethora of waterfalls, rivers and gorges.

Residents of Western Australia are usually referred to as ‘sandgropers’. Indigenous Australians formed various tribes that branched out into the state, such as the Nyungah in the southwest, the Malkana around Shark Bay and the Wongai in the central desert region. These groups maintain a significant majority among the local population in the state.

Exmouth 8
A good place to visit, must make it more exciting for tourisits, fishing is good. Exmouth is one of the few areas in Australia that can boast the "Range to Reef" experience. The Cape Range National Park which has some spectacular gorges is an area of 506 square kilometres and its main area is focused on the west coast of the Cape which provides a large variety of camp sites on the coastal fringe of the Park.
