Water Worlds

Western Australia's enchanting coasts and aquatic playgrounds come in many different forms including thermal springs, pink lakes, waterfalls, dramatic gorges, gnarly surf breaks and a giant inland lake. With a week or more on your hands, the aquatic adventures of the Kimberley, Shark Bay, or Ningaloo Reef's crystalline waters await. Or for a dose of coastal diversity closer to Perth, the city's idyllic Rottnest Island, plus Margaret River's rolling and rugged coastlines make a perfect match for an easy aquatic escape.
