Made up mostly of arid outback, Western Australia is also incredibly diverse.
Beaches, vineyards and some of the best surf the world has to offer.
So next time you find yourself with a spare chunk of annual leave up your sleeve, consider spending 5 days in WA, the Frontier Travel way.
You fly into Broome, the gateway to The Kimberley Region. It will take you most of the day to get there, unless you can snag one of the sparse direct flights, but trust me, it is worth it.
Regardless of how you get into town, make sure to stop off at the Broome Historical Museum for a rundown on the history of the area. Broome’s Chinatown started to boom in the 1920’s and 1930’s as a pearling area and is a must see on your trip into town. Walk through the main strip filled with many quirky shops, stop off for a snack at Green Mango Cafe, and catch a film at Sun Pictures, one of the world’s oldest outdoor cinemas.
For dinner, it is off to The Aarli Bar. Here you will get everything from king fish sashimi to Korean fried chicken burgers.
Drive along the beach in your 4WD and stop off at Beagle Bay, before checking into your accommodation at Kooljaman, a remote wilderness camp run by the Indigenous Bardi Jawi Communities. They have accommodation to suite every traveller, from unpowered camp sites, to Log Cabins, right up the Deluxe Safari Tent .
Another day in paradise and behind the wheel of your 4WD. Today takes you on a resort run guided walk along Eastern and Western Beach or up to the Cape Leveque Lighthouse.
