It's almost impossible to try to summarize the assets of such a massive and diverse state. Western Australia has the benefits of natural isolation, size and the merging of the Indian and Southern oceans. These factors provide a cruising environment of rare diversity and abundance. Western Australia's oceans are home to a haven of thousands of fish and marine creatures, great and small. Sounds like the perfect yacht charter vacation. The coastal offshore winds provide the perfect environment for sailing yachts, year round. The summer months around Perth are hot with an average temperature of between 17 and 29 degrees Celsius. The winter months in Perth are from June to August and are mild, with an average temperature of 9-18 degrees Celsius.
Just off Perth, you'll find Rottnest Island. Thousands of people flock there every year to enjoy its preserved natural waters and wildlife. Everyone entering the Rottnest Island Reserve, including the marine reserve, is required to pay an admission fee as a contribution to the conservation of the Island and the provision and upkeep of facilities. Once admission fees have been paid, charter boats may anchor in specified locations. Moving north up the coast, you'll find endless natural reserve islands and archipelago's including Francois Peron National Park in Shark Bay; Ningaloo Marine Park; Barrow Island Nature Reserve and Dolphin Island Nature Reserve - The name speaks for itself. For the trip of a lifetime, take a sea safari into the northern Buccaneer Archipelago. Camp out under the stars on remote beaches and fish collect oysters, bush walk, bird watch or just dream. If you intend on going any further north than that, you're almost on your way to Indonesia.
