There are so many luxury tours and five star hotels and resorts in Western Australia you could spend a lifetime here! From secluded, unspoilt beaches to the night life in Perth, from the wineries of the Margaret River region to the wilderness of the Kimberley's, you will find something to fascinate you. Why not take a few combined tours to really get to know this rugged region of Australia.
Stay a few days in Perth, in one of the many fabulous five star hotels. Enjoy some champagne while you take in a sunset over the Indian Ocean. Spend some time soaking up the night life, visit the art galleries and enjoy some live entertainment over a delicious a la carte dinner.
You could also stay at Cape Lodge, a small boutique five star hotel, in the Margaret River district. Set around two lakes and located around its own vineyard, your privacy is guaranteed. It was voted in the top 100 hotels in the world in 2005. Go canoeing, play tennis or have a massage.
