WESTERN AUSTRALIA 2010
Wow, this part of Australia is well worth travelling the extra miles for. There is such a variety of activities and experiences on offer, so ensure you leave enough time in your planning to encompass them all.
Taking advantage of Air New Zealand’s direct flights from Auckland, we arrived in Perth and transferred to the roomy KIA Carnival for our site seeing. There is plenty to do in and around Perth city. Kings Park is an ideal way to look-out over the city and enjoy Western Australia’s flora and fauna. We then took a short drive to Fremantle, visiting the Maritime Museum. We did not linger long in Perth as we excitedly anticipated our incredible adventure further North.
Skywest Airlines flew us throughout the areas of Monkey Mia/Exmouth and Broome. Friendly staff offering great service, and ground assistance.

Monkey Mia offers an ideal family seaside holiday, with daily dolphin feeding on offer. Being a heritage area the sea life is prolific and interactive. Snapper fishing was great sport as they leapt out of the water to take baits like a frenzy of piranha!
