Western Australia
Western Australia is the largest state of Australia with an area of 2.6 million square kilometres (about the same size as Western Europe). The population of the state is 1.98 million, representing 9.8 per cent of the total population of Australia. The state is so vast that there is a variety of landscapes and climates. With a low population density it sometimes seems as if you have the world to yourself from basking in the mile upon mile of golden beaches to touring the largely empty central and northern most parts of the state to taking in the lush greenery and forests of the southern parts of the state. The lifestyle is casual and easy going. Understandably in view of the unlimited sunshine; a large emphasis is placed on the great outdoors.

The main population centres are Perth, Fremantle. Rockingham, Mandurah, Bunbury and Kalgoorlie.
