“Western Australia is the largest state in the country," Ms Ang stated, "it is diverse with numerous experiences ranging from sampling chardonnay in the Margaret River wine region to visiting the Kimberley in the northwest, one of the true last wilderness areas on earth. As we get ready for borders reopening, we hope to elevate the state as a leading destination of choice, with the strong support from our trade partners and the Reconnect WA package.”

Orca expeditions are commencing in the coastal town of Bremer Bay in WA’s southwest region, home to one of the largest known congregations of orcas in the Southern Hemisphere, with tours departing daily from January to April. In the sunny city of Perth, adventure seekers can chase the adrenaline rush at the Matagarup Bridge zip-line, newly zipping into action in December 2021. The zip-line adventure experience takes around 90 minutes and sits over 35 metres above Perth’s iconic Swan River.
