Western Australia

The massive state of Western Australia is rich in iron ore and coal. That makes mining an important industry there, and recent booms in this industry have brought great wealth to the region.
The state’s capital is Perth, located on Swan River, with Kings Park as its background.
Western Australia shares a history of convicts-settled areas with Tasmania. You can find the remains of many notable shipwrecks at the Fremantle’s Maritime Museum. Many of these occurred long before Australia was ever settled.
Western Australia is home to some of the finest wine-growing country in the land, thanks to Margaret River, near its southern borders. If you travel to the north, you will find the famous tourist location of Broome.
The Margaret River, to the South, is another premier wine growing region in Australia. Broome, in the far north, is an iconic tourist destination.
