The South West Coast of Australia is a truly amazing place. A perfect holiday destination if you're looking for an authentic Australian experience.
The south west coast stretches from the beaches of Perth, on the west coast on the Indian Ocean to the shores of Two Peoples Bay, east of Albany on the south coast of Australia facing the great Southern Ocean.
The Gap, Albany, on the South Coast of WA where Australia broke from Antarctica. Amazing indeed.
The Cities of Perth and Fremantle, the wine and surf of Margaret River, the capes Naturaliste and Leeuwin. The shipwreck Mandalay, lying beneath the sand, and the gorgeous inlets of Walpole. The forests and lagoons of Denmark. Albany's harbour and sheltering mounts provide a wider view of the historic south west coast, and the dunes house turbines, creating electricity for the south west coast of Australia.

Middleton Beach is lovely. Albany is a historic city, respecting and sharing the past yet totally embracing the now 30,000 call Albany home! For visitors, it has a fun filled sea-side city vibe set on a glorious harbour, with a rich history... oh, and great beaches.
The Rainbow Coast is one of the most beautiful places on Earth. It stretches from Albany in the east, through Denmark and into Walpole in the west. The South Coast of Western Australia is often showered in rainbows from Autumn to Spring thus the name...
A magical place.
The South West Coast of Western Australia is special. The weather is great, hot and sunny in summer, and a winter with fantastic storms bringing rain to the southern forests, and rainbows to the far south coast. It's a nice place to holiday, giving you an experience of Australia's ancient coastline, a chance to swim or surf off gorgeous sandy beaches, and a reminder of the beauty and majesty of our precious natural environment.
Wondering where to start?
Actually, It's all good. Perth's a gorgeous city, Fremantle the historic and creative port, Margaret River where surfers are born, and the Rainbow Coast from Walpole's ancient forests to Denmark's turquoise waters. Albany is where it all began.
