Western Australia is the largest of all the states in Australia and occupies around a third of the entire continent. It is bordered by the Indian & Southern Oceans and The Northern Territory and South Australia.
This resource rich state state is one of the most abundant mineral rich regions in the world.
Most of the population of Western Australia live in the south west, in and around the capital, Perth. The south west also has some well known wine regions, such as the Margaret River.
To the north west of the state are the rugged and remote Kimberleys which are considered Australia's last frontier. This majestic and unique region covers over 400 000 square kilometers and is punctuated with magnificent gorges, canyons and unique land forms, millions of years in the making.
