Life in Western Australia
Boasting thousands of kilometres of white sandy beaches, amazing scenery, endless blue skies and a modern yet relaxed lifestyle, Western Australia is considered one of Australia's most popular destinations for migrants.
Western Australia is Australia's largest state in area, covering 2,525 million square kilometres, with a population of around 2.3 million people.
With the tropical climate, turquoise waters and spectacular gorges in the north, to the Mediterranean climate, wineries and forests in the South West, Western Australia varies vastly from region to region and offers something for everyone. Western Australia’s South-West was internationally recognised as one of the world’s most desirable holiday destinations by leading travel guide company Lonely Planet, featuring in its Best in Travel publication's "world’s top 10 regions to visit in 2010" list.
