Things To See And Do
A number of properties have diversified into the cultivation of the unique flora from the area, with flowers being produced for the domestic and overseas markets.
Lakes & Coast
What an unusual mixture of water, from the freshwater lakes of the dryer country to the salt water lakes, with such unique colours and contrasts, to the rugged coastline, with some of the most beautiful unspoilt beaches to be found anywhere.
The coast offers some of the best beach and ocean fishing in the west, fishing charters are available.
What better spot for a picnic than by the water, there are a large number of lakes that make great spots for picnics, while spotting the local birds and rare flowers.
Beautiful sheltered bays make for safe swimming on the coast. Remember to always check with tourist centres or the local shire regarding swimming in lakes and waterholes.
Yes the west coast is sometimes windy, so why not make the most of it, have a go at windsurfing, or if you're not that adventurous just enjoy the spectacle.
What could be more relaxing than a stroll along a deserted beach, sitting and watching the changing colours of the salt lakes as the sun sets, or having a rest by the side of a lake.
The reefs make an ideal area for diving, dive tours are available.
