Australia and Oceania arguably play home to the most beautiful and exotic locations and creatures in the entire world. Any one who has experienced the fireworks over Sydney Harbour, or seen million old cave paintings, or the wonders of the Great Barrier Reef realise they are in a very special time and place.

I have only experienced a tiny fraction of what this great continent has to offer, but it still afforded me the "best day of my life" - snorkelling off Hamilton Island.

For a more in-depth look at what this area has to offer check out Richiecdisc's Australia and Oceania Pages.

My experience of this continent is based in Western Australia, arguably the largest state in the world; Western Australia covers one-third of the Australian continent. Spanning over 2.5 million square kilometres
(1 million square miles), Western Australia extends into different climatic zones simultaneously. When it is warm and dry in the north of the State, it is cool and wet in the south - that's how big Western Australia is.

Bordered largely by desert to the east, Western Australia is bound by 12,500 kilometres (7,813 miles) of the world's most pristine coastline to the west. Western Australia is adored for its brilliant blue skies, warm sunny climate, and white sandy beaches. It is a land blessed with some of the world's most precious natural phenomena including the dolphins of Monkey Mia, the 350-million-year-old Bungle Bungle range and the towering Karri forests of the South West.
