The State of Western Australia is a world-leading minerals, energy and agricultural economy, with abundant natural resources and home to groundbreaking technology and innovation.

As Australia’s largest state, Western Australia is a world-leading mining, energy and agricultural economy, with an abundance of natural resources.

Western Australia shares a similar time zone with many high growth countries in Asia, and its geographic position makes it an ideal gateway to the Asia Pacific and Indian Ocean region. The State has a transparent, predictable and mature regulatory system ensuring it remains a top low-risk investment destination in the region.

Its capital city, Perth, is the only Australian city with a direct connection with Europe.

Perth continually ranks as one of the world’s most liveable cities according to the Economist Intelligence Unit’s Global Liveability Ranking.

There are significant business advantages to investing and working in Western Australia. The recent The Fraser Institute Survey continually ranks it as the top jurisdiction in the world for investment in mining based on its Investment Attractiveness Index.

Another major drawcard for businesses, residents, students and visitors alike is the State’s unbeatable lifestyle. Perth is home to the world’s largest inner-city park Kings Park, has pristine white beaches within 20 minutes’ drive from CBD, and is Australia’s sunniest capital averaging 9 hours of sunshine daily all year round.
