Sun & Sea

Endless sunshine, crystal clear water and the whitest beach sand in Australia.

A common misconception about Australians is that we all live in the outback, wrangling crocodiles and mustering cattle. This may be true of some, but for most Western Australians –  all 2.64 million of us – it is the coast we call home.

Western Australia is girt by 20,781 km of coastline so it’s no wonder the beach has become the epicentre of cultural life in a country that prides itself on relaxation and not taking life too seriously.

Australian beach life runs through every neuron of the Australian psyche, from fashion and sport, to art and careers, even our businessmen wear shorts to work in summer.

Western Australia’s beaches are among the most beautiful in the world, with white sand, warm water and abundant marine life.

Come see for you yourself.
