n the year to March, West Australians took almost five million
trips in WA, an increase of 570,000.
Intrastate business travel grew rapidly, by 29 per cent. Less
expected was the eight per cent increase in the WA intrastate
leisure market to more than two million trips.
Compare these numbers to our two most popular international
destinations – Bali with 385,000 visits and Singapore with 455,000 –
and WA is a clear winner.
Total inbound travellers to WA also increased: international
visitors were up by 3.5 per cent to 739,000, and interstate visitors
by 11.2 per cent to 1.15 million. The only bad news was the impact of
the dollar and the GFC on the national and interstate leisure market,
which dropped by five per cent and 12 per cent respectively.
For the increasing number of West Australians choosing to holiday
at home, this edition is jam-packed with the best of what each region
has to offer. From the stunning 6000sqm resort home at Maitraya,
near Albany, to the brand-new Berkeley River Lodge in the Kimberley,
luxury options in unique destinations abound.
July to December is, of course, the season of the North West, and the
time to hit the Coral Coast, Pilbara and the Kimberley. Closer to home,
this is the perfect time for day trips and weekenders to the Perth Hills,
the Swan, Avon and Northern Valleys.
Down south, the season is slow and green. As long as you don’t
mind rugging up, the locals are relaxed and friendly and the shops,
restaurants and wineries uncrowded.
And don’t forget, Scoop Traveller is supported by a range of materials
to help you get the most out of your travel experience.
THE MAP SERIES For a more portable option to use in conjunction
with the magazine, grab a copy of the Perth Guide, or one of the five
fold-out maps that make up the Scoop Map Series, where all your
favourite restaurants, wineries and attractions can be found with ease.

West Australians are travelling like mad, and despite
what you read in the papers, they are spending more
and more of their holiday time exploring WA.
