'Endless caravan and camping options'

RAC survey shows Broome stands
at top of WA's holiday bucket list

WA campers  Have your say

BROOME is at the top of Western Australia's holiday "bucket list", according to a new RAC survey of caravanners and campers.

More than 900 people who had either camped or stayed in a caravan in the state during the last 12 months took part in the study.

They rated Broome as their number one travel destination in WA, followed by Esperance, Kununurra, Exmouth and the wider Kimberley region.

RAC group executive (tourism) Tony Pickworth said people were lucky to live "in such a beautiful part of Australia", which offered diverse and unique holiday experiences.

"The caravan and camping options are endless in WA with so many incredible holiday spots to choose from, so we wanted to find out the destinations at the top of everyone's bucket lists," he explained.

"Broome was overwhelmingly the top choice for caravanners and campers, and it really is like nowhere else in the world.

"Broome's tropical climate makes it the perfect place for a winter getaway, but it also offers an array of activities from scenic flights, camel rides on the beach and rich historical and cultural experiences."

Mr Pickworth said people who want a relaxing holiday could not go past its pristine beaches and spectacular sunsets.

“Another top location for caravanning and camping is Esperance, which is renowned for its secluded beaches and crystal clear water.

"It's also a nature lovers' paradise, with some of the best snorkelling spots and nature reserves for those who enjoy bushwalking.

"Regional destinations throughout northern WA featured heavily in our holiday bucket list, with caravanners and campers particularly wanting to visit Kununurra, Exmouth, Coral Bay and Karijini."

The survey also found more than 90 percent of respondents were planning to continue travelling throughout WA in the next 12 months.

"It's fantastic to see Western Australians continuing to explore the incredible state we live in and supporting the regional communities that make these places so special," Mr Pickworth said.

"WA offers something for everyone, from spectacular landscapes, beaches and bushland to some of the best food and wine experiences in the country."
