Western Australia’s beaches are regularly voted among the best in the world, and it is not hard to see why. The 12,500 km (7,767 miles) of coastline is home to World Heritage sites, stunning beaches and unique towns.

A cinematic treasure trove for filmmakers, with plenty of remarkable and unusual locations. The opportunities are endless, from the other-worldly red sand beaches in the north, to doubling as the sunny coastline of California, small US coastal towns and quaint English seaside ports.
