From Rottnest Island to Broome, Western Australia is home to some of the most beautiful natural landmarks in the country.

If you thought you knew Western Australia - think again. It's hastily brushing off its sleepy state perception, and we're convinced that it is THE roadtrip state of Australia. Curious? Read on. Here are 5 Travis guides by travel-obsessed Aussies sharing the best and varied destinations this state has to offer!

1. Places You Must See in WA by Madeline (@thewininghills)

Thinking of your very first roadtrip in a van - and feeling a little unsure about it all? Follow Madeline and Jeromie for a week on their very first Western Australia road trip, visiting some of the most stunning beaches along the coastline from Margaret River to Perth (with the van they rented from @the_part_time_vanlife via Camplify).

Not sure where to visit in WA? Follow Chloe on her all-rounded adventure where she soaks up the natural scenery at Kings Park, cuddles up with fluffy quokkas on Rottnest Island and relaxes by the quiet beach town of Busselton.


3. Ultimate Broome Visitors Guide by Tess (@tessomewhere)

Why yes, you can indeed ride camels on the beach at sunset - right in one of the most secluded parts of Australia! Check out Tess’ recent Broome guide to learn more about the iconic landmarks in this tropical beach town. Tess credits her time in Broome for inspiring her to pursue her travel blog and photography as a creative outlet. From sand dunes to local markets, Broome might just be the answer to your next Aussie escape.


4. Day Trips from Perth by Aimee (@aimeebelll)
