Stunning Images from Western Australia

Australia is famous for its dramatic landscapes, its unique wildlife, its World Heritage sites such as Bungle Bungle Ranges, Karinjini National Park and the cave formations of Tunnel Creek and Margaret River.

Western Australia has only a small minority of inhabitants. A significant part is sparsely populated. This absence of people and the uniqueness of the landscape means that the region has relatively low human disturbance and a high likelihood of places and spots untouched by urbanisation.
