The Best of the West - our personal favourites

Walk into Luxury has proudly showcased our beautiful home state for ten years. Here, our WA team have handpicked some of their favourite experiences.

By Walk into Luxury

Sugarloaf rock Walk into Luxury

Across its pristine coastline, from the forests and vineyards of the southwest to the ancient and rugged landscape of the Kimberley, you're sure to find your ideal Western Australian journey.

Founder's Top Pick

True North Kimberley Cruise

An icon of Western Australia, the True North has been on bucket lists of visitors to WA for years. The one-to-one guest-to-staff ratio, local guides and custom-made boat ensure that True North is the best way to experience the Kimberley coast from Broome to Wyndham/Kununurra.

LUXURY TIP: Book early in the season (March to June) to view the waterfalls at their best

Sal Salis, Ningaloo Reef

Snorkel the reef metres from your safari-style tent, and walk the gorges of Cape Range National Park. Visit from April to July to swim with the whale sharks, or August to October to observe or swim with humpback whales. This is all-inclusive barefoot luxury at its best!

LUXURY TIP: Combine your stay at Sal Salis with a three-night Ningaloo Reef cruise

El Questro Homestead, East Kimberley

Walk to Emma Gorge, relax in Zebedee Springs after the crowds leave, and dine on a clifftop overlooking the Chamberlain River. A special spot, and the base for our 4 Night Kimberley Walk.

LUXURY TIP: Enhance your Kimberley experience with a private heli-picnic at Miri Miri Falls

COMO The Treasury Hotel, Perth

Quite simply, one of Australia’s finest hotels. Housed within beautifully restored heritage buildings in Perth’s CBD, the COMO is just a short walk from the Swan River. Perth’s best food and wine precinct is located within the complex, and the guest suites and lounge spaces are exquisite.

LUXURY TIP: Let us book your preferred dining venues and COMO Shambhala Urban Escape spa treatments in advance

Rottnest Island, Perth Coast

Affectionately referred to as "Rotto" by Perth locals, the island's beautiful beaches are ideal for swimming and snorkelling. Cycle between the turquoise bays and take a selfie with a Quokka before returning to Perth on a high-speed ferry service.

LUXURY TIP: Forego the ferry and arrive in style on a heli transfer instead

Smiths Beach Resort, Yallingup

Overlooking Yallingup’s best beach in the Margaret River wine region, Smiths Beach Resort offers the perfect seaside escape. We love the views from the modern, ocean-view villas, the onsite dining at Lamont's, and the resort-style pools.

LUXURY TIP: Why not include a day hike on the Cape to Cape Track and winery lunch during your stay?

Bullo River Station, East Kimberley

While technically located in the Northern Territory, this outback gem is only three hours from Kununurra in the East Kimberley region. Enjoy guided river cruises, walks, Aboriginal rock art viewing, and the ultimate outback hospitality at this all-inclusive luxury lodge.

LUXURY TIP: For complete outback seclusion, add an overnight campout in a remote Lakeview Hut (you’ll be dropped there by helicopter)

Next on our travel wish list

Swell Lodge and Christmas Island

Christmas Island is famous for its red crab migration, but we love it for the turquoise beaches, cave systems, waterfalls and rainforests. Swell Lodge is the place to stay on the Island, with just two exclusive villas overlooking the ocean. All-inclusive private chef dinners and gourmet picnics to enjoy on your guided adventures complete the Swell Lodge experience.
