Today is a public holiday – it is Western Australia Day :) So I thought I’d introduce you to our wonderful state…

Western Australia (commonly abbreviated as WA) occupies  the entire western third of the Australian Continent. It is bounded by the Indian Ocean to the north and west, the Southern Ocean to the south, the Northern Territory to the north-east and South Australia to the south-east. Western Australia is Australia’s largest state and the second-largest ‘state’ in the world. Today Western Australia has approximately 2.3 million inhabitants (around 10% of the national total) and supplies 46% of Australia’s exports.

The total length of the state’s eastern boarder is 1,862 km (1,157 mi). There are 20,781 km (12,913 mi) of coastline, including 7,892 km (4,904 mi) of island coastline. The total land area occupied by the state is 2.5 million km2.

The first European to visit Western Australia was in 1616. It was on June 1, 1829, that Western Australia’s coast was first sighted from the merchant ship Barque Parmelia. This led to the establishment of the Swan River Colony, the first permanent British colony in Western Australia. Western Australia Day (formerly Foundation Day) is officially celebrated on June 1, but the public holiday is observed on the first Monday in June.

The weather is wonderful, the people friendly, the sights are amazing.

Come visit :)
