Flight of Fancy podcast: The highlights of Western Australia

You haven't seen Australia until you've seen a sunset in WA. Until you've sat there on one of those endless beaches with your toes curled in white sand, until you've gazed out over the Indian Ocean and watched as the sun dips below the horizon and the sky turns a riot of reds and purples and violets and pinks, you just haven't experienced the best of what this country has to offer.

A West Australian sunset is something to behold. Something to cherish. However, it's not the only thing this vast and amazing state has to offer. Because Western Australia is also the Kimberley, all rugged gorges and pristine coastline. It's Cable Beach, with its lines of camels. It's Karajini National Park, all ancient waterholes and rock formations. It's Ningaloo Reef, it's Shark Bay, it's the Pinnacles, it's Rottnest Island, it's Freo, it's Margaret River, it's Albany and Esperance and so much more.

It's not always easy to access, of course. The WA government has a habit of closing the doors at short notice right now. But Western Australia is still well worth the effort.

On this episode of Flight of Fancy, guests Fleur Bainger and Ute Junker discuss all things WA, from where to go, what to do, what to eat, what to drink, how to get around, and what exactly makes this state unique.

This Flight of Fancy episode is hosted and produced by Ben Groundwater and mixed by Tim Mummery.
