Explore the untrodden as you journey through Western Australia

Business Events Perth chief executive officer, Gareth Martin, takes you on a journey through the vast and varied lands of this incredible region.

Kaya! Whether you’re here for a few days or a few weeks, the mind-blowingly large region of Western Australia offers so many opportunities for business delegates to take the path less travelled.

The coastline of Western Australia stretches over 12,500 kilometres and boasts incredible regional diversity. Take a journey with me through these ancient lands and discover our rich cultural heritage, local characters, turquoise waters and outback oases – my recommended journey through the regions of this majestic place, I call home.

Australia’s Southwest

Australia’s Southwest is a great place to start your journey through Western Australia. Easily accessed with direct flights from Perth and Melbourne, or a two-hour drive from the city, you’ll see why it’s a favourite for locals.

Here, your delegates can journey through more than 150 wine producers and 90 cellar doors, where the forest meets the ocean and where friendly, passionate locals welcome you in.

Australia’s Golden Outback

From here, head to Australia’s Golden Outback, which stretches far and covers just over half of WA.

Explore from the rugged red north to the jewel of the pristine southern coast, Esperance, and from the historic outback goldfields of the east to charming farm stays and spectacular wildflowers.

Share Australia’s whitest beach, Lucky Bay, with us and some friendly kangaroos. Lake Hillier’s striking pink water presents an otherworldly spectacle and eco-touring, swimming, snorkelling, and kayaking are some of the locals’ favourite things to do.

Destination Perth

Perth, WA.

For those staying in the cosmopolitan city of Perth, the lively metropolis boasts 19 pristine beaches, Indian Ocean sunsets and one of the world’s largest inner-city parks, Kings Park.

Journey through Elizabeth Quay, a vibrant waterfront playground, to enjoy the city’s active lifestyle and alfresco bars and restaurants on the beautiful Swan River. Let passionate local guides reveal the city to you on a walking, rickshaw or Segway tour.

Australia’s Coral Coast

Venture north from the city to the World Heritage-listed Ningaloo Reef – a dreamlike destination for nature and wildlife lovers and home to the ‘Big 3’; whale sharks, humpback whales and manta rays. It is one of the planet’s most biologically diverse marine environments and one of our top destinations for incentive programs.

Ningaloo offers activities like snorkelling with loggerhead turtles, whale watching and the magic of swimming with whale sharks. Alternatively, take to the sky in a scenic flight over Port Gregory’s bubble gum Pink Lake or view the uninterrupted night sky with an evening under the stars in eco lodging.

Australia’s Northwest

In the northwest of Australia, delegates will experience one of Earth’s last true wilderness areas.

Australia’s Northwest grounds you and its red sands never leave you. Its coastal and outback towns offer vastly different experiences.

Quiet but powerful, the Kimberley region is a fantastic destination for delegates to immerse themselves in something soulful and magical.

Extending 660 kilometres from Derby to Kununurra across the Kimberley region, the Gibb River Road cuts through some of Earth’s most extraordinary country. Your delegates will take in spectacular outback gorges, secluded swimming holes, vast national parks, ancient rock art, thundering waterfalls, and endless wildlife encounters.

In this place where reality and the otherworldly combine, all you need to do is pick a direction and whatever incentive journey you seek, Western Australia will provide.
