National Parks

West Australia is its own world. The nation has huge gorges, dynamic coral reefs, deserts, mountains, and some of the best sand beaches in the country, as they are comparable in scale to Alaska.

The park is also one of the best locations in the country to spot wildlife. Emus trot families, giant monitor lizards are slowly meandering across your lane, and kangaroos and wallabies are springing from the bushes. Before you head out to the sea, you can easily see dugongs, sharks, manta rays, dolphins, and turtles. Denham’s local town is just 8 hours away from Perth.
