The beginning of Autumn MARCH!?
For those reading in the Northern Hemisphere, there may be some confusion in this title. Don’t worry, your summer is coming – However, ours has finished. But given the size of our amazing state, Western Australia, the end of summer doesn’t mean we all need to go into hibernation.
While the south our state will become cooler and more suitable for those looking for a cosy winter holiday, the tropical north will cool down to a more manageable heat. Perfect for those chasing a never-ending summer.
The Coral Coast, Golden Outback and Northwest are gearing up for their busier season. Some experiences that were closed during the hotter months will be flexing their well-rested hosting muscles to welcome back visitors.
While some of these areas are not where we have bases, they are certainly options for extended tours, and they are places that we would love to recommend. Because that’s why we exist. We want to show people Western Australia, and if it’s not on your list, it should be. Listed below are our top 10 places to visit in our reopening/in season areas:
