As expansive as Western Australia may be, it doesn’t mean you can’t conquer it on the wide open roads. In fact, there’s no better way to experience and explore the stunning variety of landscapes to be found in our great southern land.
From huge native forests, to windswept coastlines, delicious winery regions and stark outback scenes, it’s a unique corner of the world that is open to any and all adventurous spirits ready and willing to tackle it.
The South West Edge is one new initiative that provides an easy-to-follow path exploring the south west of WA in an achievable 12 days, across a very achievable 1200 kilometres. Over the next couple of weeks we’ll be outlining that journey for you, one that kicks off in Perth before winding down the coast all the way to Esperance, and traversing back up through our stunning golden back.
We hope you’ll not only follow our journey, but be inspired to start mapping out your own. So we invite you to check in over the coming days as we unveil each new leg with some stunning photography courtesy of renowned Western Australian photographer, Jarred Seng.
DAY 1 – ROTTO TO FREO
To get the ball rolling it makes sense to start with Rottnest Island, where you can spend the day relaxing, exploring or both! It’s got some of our State’s most beautiful beaches and bays for lazing on the sand, or go snorkelling at and experience a marine life-rich underwater world like no other.
The Basin, Little Parakeet, Geordie Bay, Parker Point… the list is endless. On land traversing the Wadjemup Biddi walking trail offers a fascinating insight into the island’s geography, while the Wadjemup Museum is an essential stop to understand Rottnest’s history in relation to its treatment of Indigenous peoples.
