A Place where we live

Australia has 25,760 kilometres of coastline and some of it is seriously breathtaking. Not convinced? Well, check out the stunning wide beaches of Western Australia from Esperance to Perth to Broome to Darwin in the Northern Territory, or the coves where rainforest meets reef in far north Queensland, or the less dramatic beauty of the New South Wales coast, or the stunning  scenery  along Victoria's Great Ocean Road, or Tasmania's Freycinet Peninsula, and the Nullarbor across from South Australia. 

Western Australia covers one third of the Australian continent, and it is arguably the largest state in the world. Spanning over 2.5 million square kilometres (1 million square miles), and extends simultaneously into different climatic zones. When it is cold and wet in the south, it is warm and dry in the north - that's how big Western Australia is.

Bordered largely by desert to the east, Western Australia is bound by 12,500 kilometres (7,813 miles) of the world's most pristine coastline to the west. Western Australia is adored for its brilliant blue skies, warm sunny climate and white sandy beaches. It is a land blessed with some of the world's most precious natural phenomena including the dolphins of Monkey Mia, the 350-million-year-old Bungle Bungle range and the towering karri forests of the South West.

Essentially a primary producer, Western Australia has a wealth of natural resources including gold, diamond, iron ore, gas and minerals.

Perth, the capital city of the State, is home to 1.38 million people and enjoys more hours of sunshine than any other capital city in Australia. The lifestyle in Perth and Western Australia is a relaxed one, and that's why we chose to live here.
