Australia: Western Coast and Kimberley Region

The water is the symbol of Perth, the sunniest city of Australia. In the hot summer days life is carried out along the elegant shores adorned by the palms of the Swan River. The black swans, symbol of the city, reign as sovereigns in the cobalt blue water of the river. 
You should visit this area for the crystal clear water of Bunker and the waves of Surfers Point, really loved by the surfers, in the luxuriant region of Margaret River. On the South Coast, there are grottos, ravines, routes to follow by foot along the coast and many other sea life forms. From June to October you must try to see the whales of the cities of Augusta, Albany and Dunsborough. From this last city you can explore the biggest ship relict accessible in the austral hemisphere (Hmas Swan).
In the Shark Bay World Heritage area, you can feed the dolphins of Monkey Mia or swim with the biggest fish of the world at Ningaloo Reef, the whale sharks (between March and June).
Along the coast you can admire the lunar landscape of the Pinnacles Desert, the clefts, the cliffs, the sinuous  river and the white beach of the Kalbarri National Park, the calcareous rock mountain chain, the deep clefts and the pure beaches of the Cape Range National Park.
A world made out of extended horizons, old clefts, unusual rock formations, comfortable natural pools and golden-sand beaches. You can’t miss: Broome, a city that produces pearls, where you’ll be able to buy the rare rose diamonds, the white beaches of Cable Beach riding a camel and observe the footprints of dinosaurs. Experiment new adventures driving on the Savannah Way between Broome and Darwin via Kanunurra and drive along the Gibb River Road (660 km long) going thorough clefts and rushing rivers, or following the red road from Broome to the remote Dampier peninsula with the possibility to stay in the Koolijaman camping, managed by the Aborigines, and have walks on the cliffs with a local aboriginal family. Derby, east of Broome, is a great base to explore the Buccaneer archipelago, a thousand of small islands spread out in the Timor Sea. In Kununurra or “Big Water” in the local aboriginal language, at 1.000 km from Broome, you can admire and climb the mysterious rock formation with their hive shape and orange and black color of Bungles Ranges in the Purnululu National Park. The harsh cliffs of the Mitchell Plateau and Horizontal Falls and the extraordinary aboriginal parietal art of Gwion (Bradshaw), some of the most ancient of the land. You can cross the immense Argylee lake by boat admiring the fresh water crocodiles, the wallabies, the birds and the majestic cliffs.
