Australia’s Extra.Ordinary. West is Western Australia’s ultimate travel guide. This 246-page coffee table book shares the many natural wonders, cultural enclaves, quirky anecdotes and surprising revelations about Western Australia.
Naturally, we covered Margaret River in Australia’s Southwest and caught up with celebrity chef Peter Kuruvita. We picked out a few lesser-known drops in the Ferguson Valley, just two hours south of Perth. Or float through the Peel region aboard a houseboat and swim with dolphins in Mandurah and Bunbury.
Join us on a flight over the pink hues of Lake Hillier in Esperance in the Golden Outback. We couldn’t resist heading to the rugged coastline of Australia’s Great Southern. Or head north to Australia’s Northwest to Broome and Karijini.
While co-writing and co-producing this book and immersing myself in my home state of Western Australia, I couldn’t help but notice the parallels of my transition into adulthood to that of Perth’s coming of age.
There’s no denying Western Australia is remote. We invite you to gaze up at sheets of bright night skies. But it’s worth the journey for its wilderness coupled with its unexpected sophistication. Even the most zealot local will be compelled to dip into this unique book, with Western Australia playing the beautiful yet aloof protagonist.
Australia’s Extra.Ordinary. West reached international acclaim in New York City – one of my favourite places on earth. In May 2019, we won a gold IPPY Award in the Australia/New Zealand regional non-fiction category at the Independent Book Publisher’s Awards in New York City. How exciting!
