Things to do

Attractions near Western Australian holiday rentals

No Western Australia vacation rentals are complete without a visit to the state capital, Perth. Set down in the fertile south-west of the state, it's closer to Jakarta than it is to the east coast cities of Sydney and Canberra, and it's evolved a character all of its own. Start with a nose round the Perth Cultural Centre – home to museums and galleries – then take a trip down to the historic port city of Fremantle, half an hour away. And while you're in the area, don't forget to leave some time to explore the area's many wineries. Cheers!


Things to do near Western Australian holiday homes

The question is, what can't you do with Western Australia vacation rentals? Many visitors gravitate towards the surf beaches, while anyone with marine creatures on their mind will want to strap on a scuba tank and make for Ningaloo reef, famous for its whale sharks. Head into the interior, and you're into road trip central, whether you're following Aboriginal mythology along the Warlu Way, or crossing the remote backcountry of the Kimberley in a 4x4. The south-west's the greenest and most fertile region, where you'll find hiking trails, wineries and sightseeing around the state capital.


Best time to travel to Western Australia's holiday homes

Western Australia's so massive that the climate totally depends on where you are. The gentlest weather is down in the south-west, where you'll find a Mediterranean-style mix of hot, dry summers and cool, damp winters. Much of the rest of the state is arid and ferociously hot, with its rainfall confined to occasional torrential downpours. If you're heading up north to the otherworldly landscapes of the Kimberley, things are a bit different. It's got a monsoon climate, with a long dry season, then torrential downpours and flash floods between November and April. Not the time for that back-country road-trip.
