When friends talk about the land down under, it’s always just about the East coast: Melbourne, Sydney – when IRL there’s so much more in Western Australia which occupies a third of the plain!

So adrenaline junkies, if you’re dreaming to experience some of the world’s most thrilling and scenic adventures, just know that a 5.5 hr flight to Perth is all it takes. And the best part? You won’t even need time to adapt. The weather’s not much different to ours and we even share the same time zone as them.

Up, Up To The Sky
If skydiving has been on your bucket list for a while now, Western Australia’s the place to make that leap happen.

Once you’ve touched down, whip out your cameras to take adorable selfies with the world’s happiest animal — the quokkas.
But if you feel everything’s happening too fast and you may have accidentally shut your eyes for a minute or two while ‘crashing down’, fly up in a hot air balloon this time to take in the stunning views PROPERLY.
