Western Australia

Something for everyone.

The Australian coast is perfect for amateur and professional surfers. From the Pacific Ocean to the Indian and Southern Oceans, the great, surfing waves in Australia are world renowned. But do be careful, as surfing is a dangerous sport. Pay attention to reports of sharks, jellyfish and strong currents and do not surf alone.

The section of coastline south of Perth from Yallingup to Margaret River has 40 great surfing spots, some of which have waves up to 3 metres high! There are also other good surfing spots around Perth and Rottnest Island. Even more good surfing beaches include: Strickland Bay (one of the region's most beautiful places), Salmon Bay, Stark Bay, Prevelly Park, Jake's Point, Gnaraloo Station and Surfers Beach, which is considered an elite surfing spot.

Western Australia is also know for great scuba diving and snorkeling opportunities. South of Exmouth is Ningaloo Reef which extends over more than 200 km and is one of the world's most beautiful diving spots. Other good diving and snorkeling places on the east coast include: Bundegi Bombies, Lighthouse Bay, Lakeside and Turquoise Bay. At Thomson Bay on Rottnest Island you can discover some underwater shipwrecks. Other exciting water activities include kitesurfing at Geraldton and Lancelin.
