What I like about Western Australia
In Summer it is hot and ... its heaven, the frangipani and other flowers bloom in beautiful colors.

Three months of sun, sand, salt water is the time to take a stunning swim in the aqua blue ocean along the coast. WA summers are simply the best. From Hillary’s Beach to Margaret River we have some of the most beautiful beaches in the world.

Waiting for the Fremantle Doctor (a cool breeze off the sea) to come sweeping through the back door in the late afternoon.

Dragging for prawns, and fishing on a balmy night or dropping the crab nets in the Swan River or Peel Inlet for a feed of fat blue mannas crabs, then the feast with hot bread, a dash of salt and some vinegar while watching the twinkling lights reflecting from the city buildings in the tiny surface waves with family and friends in the warm evening.

Walking through Kings Park, one of the world’s largest and most beautiful inner city parks rich in Aboriginal and European history, contemporary culture offering innovative design, displays and services. Kings Park has an international reputation for scientific research, leading horticulture, conservation and public education. Kings Park is home to the spectacular Western Australian Botanic Garden, which displays over 3,000 species of the State’s unique flora. Two thirds of the 400 hectare park is protected as bush-land and provides a haven for native biological diversity.

Visitors can enjoy sweeping views of the Swan and Canning Rivers, the city skyline and the Darling Ranges to the east. Bush-land walk trails, immaculate gardens and park-lands and a variety of children’s discovery play areas can all be found in Kings Park. The Visitor Information Centre, free daily guided walks, Aspects of Kings Park gallery shop, cafes and public transport are easily accessible.

The 60-hectare, heritage-listed site - The Golden Valley Tree Park in Balingup. in our South-West has a collection of trees that was started more than 100 years ago and is now the largest arboretum in WA.

The internationally recognized nature-based tourism attraction: The Valley of the Giants a Tree Top Walk west of Denmark and east of Walpole. It is stunning.

Eating hot fish and chips on the foreshore and watch the magnificent Australian sun drop like a great orange orb into the ocean, throwing its magnificent colors up across the sky.

Heading for the South-West with a stop for breakfast at the little town of Dunsborough then on to lunch of delicious ribs at the Eagle Bay Brewery.

Staying over for the weekend at Margaret River, a small town south of Perth, known for its craft breweries, chocolate, boutiques and surrounding wineries. Beaches and surf breaks line the nearby coast. A long lazy lunch accompanied by a famous chilled bottle of Margaret River wine, looking at the rows of grape vines and then a a stop at the chocolate factory.

Watching migratory whales along the coast from June to November.

Visiting the long-distance Cape to Cape Track that fringes the limestone caves and sea cliffs of Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park.
Watching outdoor movies under a still sky at the Rooftop Movies on the top floor of the Roe Street car park in the City, the Moonlight Cinema at Kings Park and the Somerville Auditorium at the University of WA or an ice cold beer from one of our boutique breweries.

Visiting the suburb of Mundaring nestled in the Jarrah forest of the Perth Hills – listening to the bush band and enjoying the famous spit roast or picnics at Lake Leschenaultia and enjoy the small but beautiful blue Leschenaultia flowers - Pack your bathers to swim in the beautiful surrounding.

The influx of 500,000 tourists from all over the world an interstate who come to WA to experience one of the world’s best summers.

Children playing in the water of the “interactive sculpture” in Perth’s Forrest Place, squealing with delight.

Summer means it’s time of a stand-up paddle board session at Iso’s reef off Cottesloe wearing only board-shorts or a bikini or sit on the free sun lounges at Bathers beach in Fremantle. Or Kayaking on Augusta’s Blackwood River.

Fresh bread, fresh fish, fresh honey, fresh fruit. Fresh everything from one of the state’s farmer’s markets or from friend’s veggie patches. Every green thumb with a veggie patch loves summer for one reason above all others – it’s the one time of year to grow a bountiful harvest of sweet, juicy tomatoes that eclipse anything you can find in a supermarket. For a true taste of summer, pick one ripe from the bush, wrap it in a basil leaf and devour on the spot.

A thick juicy steak on the barbie (BBQ) and a sausage sizzle for the kids or a taste feast at the the “Twilight Hawkers Market”.

Visiting our iconic Rottnest Island by ferry. Buying a mock cream bun from the bakery and watching the cute little quokkas (a cross between kangaroos and wallabies.).

Love is in the air during summer, it is our wedding season and couples in love walk down the aisles at venues and beaches all over the state.

People keeping fit, running along the Swan River at dusk or dawn or watching the sun set as you go up and (and up and down again) at Kings Park’s DNA tower.

Swimming with dolphins at Bunbury thanks to the multi-award winning Dolphin Discovery Centre. Visiting Monkey Mia in the north. Snorkelling and scuba diving at different locations along the coast. Swimming with the whale sharks.

Walking under the Sea at the Underwater Observatory at Busselton Jetty. The longest jetty in the southern hemisphere is a wildlife mecca, with visibility to match.

Wandering through Kalamunda markets, having a picnic in the cool at the magnificent Araluen tulip gardens

Summer is crayfish season and a few spots are more scenic than diving for crays off Hamelin Bay near Augusta. While you’re in the vicinity, take in the spectacular view from the top of the Augusta lighthouse.

Manjimup stone fruit. During summer the peaches, nectarines, plums and apricots are ripe, full of flavor, sweet as honey.

Western Australia's world class Opera, the ballet, the WA Orchestra, the music festivals and the Museum and Art Gallery.
And………there is so much more.

Come an visit us, you will love it.
