On my first trip to Australia I almost didn’t visit Western Australia. I had all of the usual hot spots on my checklist, from the Sydney Opera House to the Great Barrier Reef, but nothing out west appealed. It seemed that it was a part I could skip. And lots of visitors agree.
Fortunately, though, my husband didn’t, so we did head west, and I promptly fell head over sandy heels for the place. Now I rarely visit Australia without some time in WA, as the locals call it, and some of my favourite memories are of its beaches and dirt roads.
