Travelling to Western Australia
If you’re heading to Western Australia, unless you’re wanting to drive to the state as part of an extended road trip, most visitors fly into Perth Airport. Direct domestic flights from all around Australia are available, plus many international connections, including the new Qantas direct flights from London. If you’re not immediately picking up a hire car, consider a private Perth airport shuttle such as Link Airport Perth to take you directly to your accommodation after your long flight. Unfortunately no train connections are available, although there is a bus service.
Some of the best places to stay in Western Australia are at the many camp grounds, often located in national parks. Check out these recommendations, plus my guide to camping:
