Thinking of Moving to Australia? Explore Western Australia

Are you thinking about moving to Western Australia? This area makes a third of Australia, covering a massive 1.6 million square miles of pristine coastline, desert, wild bush and lush tropical areas. Below are just a few of the reasons why you should explore this sparsely inhabited region of Australia.

  1. Perth

If you are moving to Australia, Perth is a city full of life and diversity. This city offers excellent employment opportunities and is the capital of Western Australia. It has more sunshine than any other city in Australia which means the beautiful coastline and beaches can be enjoyed most of the year. It has some of best fine dining the world has to offer, plus some excellent vineyards close by. Perth is also great for those who enjoy outdoor exercise.

  1. Wining and Dining

Perth has had been known for its excellent selection of eateries for many years.  With the harbourside development at Elizabeth Quay comes more eateries, from fine dining to trucks offering all sorts of delicacies.  Further south are the towns of Dunsborough and Bunbury which put on food and wine festivals at various times of the year.  And, finally, let’s not forget that the Margaret River area is home to some of the oldest and best vineyards in Australia.

  1. Coral Reefs

While everyone is heading for the Great Barrier Reef on the east coast of Australia, they forget about Western Australia’s Coral Coast, which has some spectacular reefs to explore.  Not only that, you can catch sight of whale sharks, dolphins, humpback whales, green, hawksbill and flatback turtles, as well as a vast array of other sea life.

  1. The Outback

A trip into the outback offers so many rewards.   Bright blue skies, endless horizons and the sea, give visitors the chance to experience history, nature and adventure possibly without seeing another living soul.  Enjoy carpets of wild flowers, amazing rock formations, ghost towns and perhaps stay on a sheep station to totally immerse yourself in the Aussie outback culture.

  1. Shark Bay

Shark Bay is a World Heritage Site around 500 miles north of Perth.  Not only is it home to around 11,000 dugongs, it has a 3,000 square mile sea grass bed which houses the largest variety of species on the planet.  Shark Bay has three distinct ecosystems due to the varying salinity of the water. The islands in the reserve are home to 23 species of endemic mammal species, many of which you probably won’t find anywhere else.

  1. Historic Albany

Albany is the oldest colonial settlement in Western Australia and has one of Australia’s most dramatic and beautiful coastlines.  If you drive from Perth, take the coastal road through Busselton, Margaret River and Denmark and enjoy the scenery.  There’s plenty of history to be seen – the Old Gaol, the Brig Amity Replica, Patrick Taylor’s Cottage, gold rush buildings and much more.  It’s also a great place to go whale watching between June and October, as the humpback and Southern Rights head closer to the shore for calving.

We have been so impressed with the care taken and the quality of packing, and also realise perhaps how lucky we have been to instigate the move when we did, and then to ask John Mason to do it for us.

D.P. Leeds, UK to Perth, Australia – November 2020

Absolutely one of the best movers I have worked with. Pleasant helpful admin staff and the delivery drivers were absolute angels sorting and moving the boxes where I asked them to. Arrived exactly when they said it would.
