Western Australia – a state of opportunity

From 5 February 2022 Western Australia expect to welcome back visitors, international students, skilled workers, investors and the rest of the world. Thanks to the state’s world-leading response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the foundation has been laid for WA to continue its strong economic growth while remaining a safe and stable place to live and work truly like no other.

To support the return of visitors, www.likenoother.wa.gov.au is the destination for overseas visitors, students, investors and workers to find their way to WA.

Equivalent in size to the whole of Western Europe, Western Australia offers a vast and diverse range of options for which to live, work, study or invest. From sparsely populated tropical paradises in the far north, mining towns in the Outback, to charming beach towns and cities in the State’s more Mediterranean south, there really is something for everyone in regional Western Australia.

Perth is Australia’s sunniest capital city, with more than 300 days of sunshine each year, and is surrounded by nature.  The city hosts the world’s biggest inner-city park, Kings Park, from where you can enjoy a picnic and magnificent views over the Perth skyline and the Swan River.

Located just a twenty minutes’ drive from Perth CBD are glistening shores of the Indian Ocean framed by 70 kilometres of white beaches. Right on the doorstep with only a 25 minutes’ drive lies the picturesque landscape of Western Australia’s oldest wine region Swan Valley.

With a growing population of more than 2.6 million people, Perth offers all the career opportunities, entertainment and conveniences expected of a modern metropolis while still retaining the laid-back character that have earned Perth its status as one of the most liveable cities in the world.
