You’ve done your research. Condé Nast Traveler named it “Destination of the Year” for 2016. The next best thing to do is to experience the magic of Australia yourself with special flight deals from Malaysia Airlines, the only airline that flies from Malaysia to Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Darwin and Adelaide.
Capture some of the most magnificent natural landscapes in Western Australia, at Kalbarri National Park on Australia’s Coral Coast. Offering superb walking trails and abseiling spots, the park also boasts over 800 species of wildflowers at their best from July to November. The Murchison River gorges in the Kalbarri National Park are particularly spectacular. The gorges have been carved over millions of years to form dramatic sandstone cliff faces which plummet into the Murchison River as it meanders towards the township of Kalbarri. A key attraction is Nature's Window, a natural rock arch that superbly frames the upstream view.

|Sample Award-Winning Wines|
Purchase award-winning wines from over 100 wineries and cellar doors in Margaret River, three hours south of Perth. Surrounded by tall tree forests, beautiful vineyards, surf beaches and glorious coastlines, Margaret River boasts international labels such as Leeuwin Estate, Voyager Estate, Vasse Felix, Cullen and more. Nearer to Perth, Swan Valley with over 40 wineries is just as outstanding in its variety of wines and brews.

Spice Up Your Cooking Skills
|Discover A Different World|
Experience the incredible thrill of swimming with the world’s largest fish, the gigantic but gentle whale shark, or snorkel with hundreds of tropical fish at Ningaloo Reef - a dream come true for snorkellers and divers. Regarded as one of the last great ocean paradises on Earth, it is Australia’s largest fringing reef and lies just metres from the shore in many places, so you can snorkel straight off the beach. Besides whales sharks, there are turtles, dugongs, humpback whales and more than 500 species of fish and a multitude of colourful corals.

|Go for A Morning Run|
Or spend a lazy afternoon in Kings Park & Botanic Garden, the southern hemisphere’s largest inner city park and join an indigenous walking tour. Stretch your legs and walk from the city or hop on the city-sites tram. The views from Kings Park overlooking the Swan River and city skyline are superb. Pack a picnic lunch or have a meal at Frasers Restaurant. In September, marvel at the colour of native blooms during the Kings Park Wildflower Festival.
