Treasures make the bucket list
The North West has dominated yet another tourism bucket list with six locations featuring in the Experience Oz top 10
Swimming with whale sharks ranked highly as usual, coming in at number three, ahead of Karijini National Park in sixth place.
Exploring Karijini National Park made the list for its spectacular views, rugged scenery and ancient geological formations.
The Horizontal Falls, Mitchell Falls, Bungle Bungles and Cable Beach all made the top 10 from the Kimberley region.
Cape Range National Park (12th), staircase to the moon (21st) and Turquoise Bay (31st) also made the top 100 things to do before you die list from the Exmouth and Pilbara egions.
Compiled from several years’ worth of customer feedback, staff input and database polling, the Bucket List covers experiences in larger centres as well as hidden gems in regional WA.
Experience Oz Digital Manager Matt Hobbs said the bucket list was a great opportunity to highlight some of the lesser-known wonders of WA.
“With several years’ worth of data and feedback on hand — and in response to persistent questions about how to find new things to do in Australia — we put together the bucket list so that even locals of Western Australia will find a special part of the State they’ve never visited before,” he said.
“Experiences on the list vary in location from coast to inland, gourmet to adrenaline-filled, which seems an appropriate reflection of our country’s, and Western Australia’s specifically, diversity.
“Australia is the land of the green behind the gold and we want to show people — particularly those from abroad — everything our country has to offer including what often doesn’t make the big international commercials. “
