UTC: +8 INTL DIALLING CODE: +61 8 WESTERN AUSTRALIA COVERS approximately one third of the Australian mainland and is bordered by the Northern Territory and South Australia. The capital city, Perth, is the most isolated city in the world with more than 1 million people and is closer to Singapore and Jakarta than it is to Canberra. But the locals say that is what makes it great. The majority of people live in and around Perth. The state has a substantial agricultural industry and massive natural resources including iron ore, bauxite, gold, diamonds, oil and gas, along with many other minerals. WA has major world-class wine producing regions in the Margaret River and Swan Valley regions, the latter of which is just half an hour from Perth. There is also a significant fishing industry that supplies seafood for local consumption and exports include Western Rock Lobsters, Prawns, Crabs, Shark and Tuna. Fremantle, famous for its hosting of the 1987 America's Cup, is the port for the city of Perth and is also the centre of the state's superyacht industry. It is home to well known superyacht builders Oceanfast, Evolution, Hanseatic, and Imax, as well as renowned superyacht tender manufacturer Vikal and an abundance of other highly skilled support services, all ably represented by the regional cluster group Superyacht Base WA. The WA coastline is approximately 12,500 kilometres long and provides visiting superyachts with unsurpassed variety in cruising experiences. Of particular note is the Kimberley region in the north of the state featuring pristine but rugged terrain and sensational colours of earth and rock not seen elsewhere. Western Australia is a new and exciting destination for superyachts to cruise and to undertake refit works in one of the high quality shipyards.
