Thinking about WA in 2014

Jump to last reply

My wife and I travel to Australia every two years or so, combining visits with my wife's family on the east coast with travel to a different part of the country each time. Over the years, we've been to many places, some more than once (the Red Center and North Queensland, for example). WA remains the "last frontier" as it were, though we did to a trip to the Kimberly (in the north of WA) in 1997.

So..we're looking for some advice as we start thinking about our trip! Our main interests center around outdoorsy things - nature, scenery, walks, wildlife, birds - as well as country towns, historical sites, good food and wine tasting. I'm assuming we would fly in and out of Perth and would probably rent a 4WD to get us around. We would plan on spending about 14-17 days in WA. We would be happy to have a few long days of driving, but would also like to stop in a few places for 2-4 nights before moving on. A must see will be visiting Ningaloo Reef, but would also like to visit Karijini National Park and the wine country near Perth if possible. Of course other suggestions would be most welcome! We can be pretty flexible with respect to time of year - definitely want to avoid the heat.

Thanks!
