Western Australians used to have 'State of Excitement' blazoned in their number plates, and visitors will confirm that it is an exciting place to visit with so much to do and see, and many places to visit and enjoy its fabulous attractions and facilities. Perth features many wonderful events each year and it had a thriving nightlife and entertainment scene. For those interested in the arts, there are many productions each year from local and international ballet and opera companies, musicals and plays. The famous Perth International Arts Festival brings together the best local and international artists for live performances, music, theatre, and film. The Leeuwin Estate Concert, staged in a winery, has an international reputation and attracts world class performers in the idyllic setting. Perth also hosts the the Hopman Cup in December to January, the Telstra Rally Australia in October and the Heineken Golf Classic at the Vines Resort is the richest golf tournament in the country. Western Australia is a huge state with great diversity. Perth is the main tourism gateway with the destinations of Fremantle, the Swan Valley and Perth Hills Wineries and Rottnest Island directly its doorstep. The major tourist centres of the Kimberley and Broome are well serviced with a range of regular direct flights. The famous South West or Western Australia, including the Margaret River area renowned for its surfing and wineries, is a tourist wonderland, just a days drive south of Perth. To the North West is Monkey Mia with its wild dolphins, the Ningaloo Reef, and other outback areas of the Kimberleys and the Pilbara areas that include vast tracts of pristine natural areas. Western Australia is just perfect for a visit throughout the year. Perth has a hot dry Mediterranean climate during the summer period from December to March, and has mild winters and warm and sunny weather in spring and Autumn. The weather is much hotter to the North and the South West tends to be a little cooler. The best time to visit Broome and the Kimberley are during the dry and warm periods from the May to September months. The wet season in summer makes travelling difficult.
