Western Australia has some fantastic climbing. As it is such a huge state (biggest in Australia) the climbing is very diverse ranging from seacliffs and multi-pitch walls to boulders and quarries. Around Perth there are a lot of crags within one hours drive. Most of it is on granite boulders in the Perth hills South of Perth is the south-western region. Margaret River is a good base to access all the crags around here. There are the pretty, atmospheric, granite sea-side cliffs of Willyabrup, Moses Rock and a few other smaller cliffs. Also in this region are the limestone sport crags of Bob's Hollow and Wallcliffe.
