Lonely Planet writer Charles Rawlings-Way describes why loves West Coast Australia. "There's something fundamentally liberated about west coast Australia - a frontier spirit that's free from the baggage of east-coast history. Western Australians have an extroverted world view, gazing (and travelling) across the Indian ocean to India, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Mauritius, the Maldives, South frica...perth may be the most isolated city of its size on the planet, but locals are connected to their international neighbours in a way that introspective Melburnians struggle to countenance. Within the city and beyond, this is an ancient land; Aboriginal culture here has a mainstream presence that the rest of Australia is a long way from matching."
