Which rail journey?
Western Australia - Explore the southern area of Western Australia from its capital Perth, east to the gold mines of Kalgoorlie or south to Bunbury on one of five trains.
Western Australia is the largest state in Australia so it's little wonder just how many things there are to see and do here. The delicious restaurants and white sandy beaches of Perth and Fremantle are just some of the things that make these cities so popular. But head out of town in just about any direction, and you'll discover a whole lot more. Whether it's the natural wonderland of Rottnest Island, the tall timbers of the Karrie forests, the heart of gold mining country or the fine food and wine of the Margaret River region, it's all at your fingertips. If you're not afraid of heights, there's also Australia's longest pedestrian suspension bridge or for the less adventurous, a leisurely cruise down the Swan River, and from July to November the unrivalled beauty of wildflower season.
