Top 4 WA Staycation Spots to Visit Right Now!
Just because we can’t get out of WA and visit our usual hot spots like Bali or Europe, doesn’t mean we can’t have an amazing staycation right here in WA! In fact, Perthian’s right now, are taking advantage of cheap flights, deals and offers, both North and South, that are hard to refuse. So here is a list of 4 of the hottest vacation spots right here in WA that you just can't miss!
Everyone talks about going to Broome eventually. The problem is just one thing; flights are far too expensive. Thanks to Mark Mc Gowan’s WA Recovery plan, over 8000 discounted tickets have been made available from Perth to Kununurra AND Perth to Broome!
With the WA government and Virgin Australia agreement, you can now get a one-way flight straight to Broome for as little as $199 between July and 31 October. With flights to Broome normally being well over $1000, this is the PERFECT opportunity to finally see what Broome is all about.
What to do in Broome?
Great question! If you’ve never been there you don’t know what you’re missing! You can:

Aside from being one of WA’s biggest fishing hotspots where you can catch anything from barracuda to even a reef shark right off the beach (yes we’ve seen it happen), Exmouth is closer than Broome if you’re planning on driving AND it’s packed with gorgeous sights and things to do and see. Exmouth is also SUPER family friendly with plenty of caravan parks with pools and playgrounds to keep the little ones happy and busy!
