One of the best things about Western Australia is that there are so many interesting places to see. One of the ways you can see WA’s natural beauty is by taking a classic road trip. Road trips are the epitome of intrepid travel and a great way to discover new and exciting places on your own or with a group of friends. If you are planning on going on a road trip across WA, here is a list of the places that are worth checking out.
Start in Perth
Start your road trip by visiting Perth’s awesome attractions. If you are looking for panoramic views in the city, King’s Park’s immaculately kept grounds will surely appeal to you. For those looking for some fun in the water, Cottesloe Beach and Rottnest Island are your best bets. The pristine beaches, scenic coastal roads, and beautiful suburbs will surely astound you.
Catch the ‘Wave’ at Hyden
The Wave of Hyden Rock is one of Australia’s most famous landforms. It looks like a giant wave made of multicoloured granite instead of water. If you are planning to drive to Hyden, Aries Car Rental suggests that you bring a high quality car that has air conditioning, as Hyden is a desert outpost. Standing at 15 metres high and stretching 110 metres across, the Wave Rock is massive. It is very easy to get overwhelmed by its size, especially if you are fortunate enough to have it all to yourself.
Esperance lies along the southern coast of WA and is a perfect place for people who want to unwind and recharge. It is a long drive from Perth (721 kilometres, actually), but once you get there, you will instantly be rewarded by its spectacular scenery. When driving through the park, expect to get out of the car a lot and make sure to bring bathers as the sparkling waters are just too enthralling to resist.
There are more must see places in Western Australia, but if you are going on a road trip and cannot think of places to go, consider Perth, Hyden, and Esperance. They may seem overrated at first, but if you know how and where to look, you will certainly find something new and exciting.
