Live in WA

Western Australia, with its clear skies, sensational landscape and relaxed lifestyle, is rich with places to see and things to do.

It doesn’t matter which corner of our vast State you are in, it’s all different and all amazing. We love it and you will too.

  • We are one of the largest states in the world (about half the size of Europe) and home to only 2.7 million people
  • We have ten regional areas in Western Australia; Perth, Gascoyne, Goldfields-Esperance, Great Southern, Kimberley, Mid West, Peel, Pilbara, South West and Wheatbelt. Each of these regions contains major cities and infrastructure, including shopping and entertainment
  • We are home to the world’s oldest continuing culture of over 50 000 years. Over 60 Aboriginal language groups found throughout the state represent a rich and diverse cultural heritage which is still strong throughout the metropolitan and regional areas
  • Many place names reflect the Aboriginal languages and the strong link to the country, flora and fauna that continues to this day
  • Our economy is largely driven by diverse mineral and petroleum commodities, tourism, and agriculture production, including grain, livestock, wine and fishing
  • We boast one of most biodiverse marine ecosystems and the most southerly coral reefs in the world
  • Our climate is mainly Mediterranean in the south with sensational tropical zones in the north of the state
  • Our vast variety of landscapes span across 2.5 million square kilometres and include 20 000km of incredible coastline, ancient forests, desert outback and stunning national parks
  • We are home to around 540 species of birds and more than 12 000 species of wildflowers which blanket our landscape all year through
  • Major national and international sporting, food, arts and recreational events are held throughout the year
  • We are never short of unique and extraordinary holiday experiences and things to do within our state.
