If you are travelling to or live in Perth and would like to venture outside of the capital city,here are five top places to visit in Western Australia (WA).
Perth has some great lakes and nature reserves within 1 hour from Perth by car. A bonus for bird watchers at these locations is that the birds can often be quite relaxed when you show up with binoculars or a camera as they are used to the many people who go to these great outdoor places.
Geraldton has undergone dramatic change over the past decade. The once sleepy agricultural town 420 kilometres north of Perth is now a thriving city at the centre of the Midwest mining boom.
Since rerouting the train line from the beachfront, the cityscape has been revitalised. The once industrial landscape now has a fantastic children’s playground and waterpark as well as wide grassed areas with shaded tables dotting the foreshore.
The Caravan Survival Guide by John Basham is a comprehensive must have guide for those planning a caravanning trip around Australia. It covers the essentials for those who are new to caravanning, kicking off by covering the basics of how to pick a caravan.
Previously in the shadow Margaret River 60 kilometres to the north, the once almost ignored sleepy hollow of Augusta is starting to shape up as the next hot spot on Western Australia’s long list of top coastal destinations.
For a start it is one of those rare spots in the WA where you can see the sun rise over the ocean.
The Australian Fishing Guide provides a comprehensive resource on fishing in Australia – from the many types of fishing available in Oz to where to go to find the best fish. It covers over 1000 destinations across Australia where you can go to drop a line and drink in the scenery.

Below I’ve compiled a list of several restaurants that source many, if not all, their ingredients from local producers around Perth and Western Australia.
