Why not travel to Western Australia during the school holidays?

School holidays in Western Australia are a busy time for travelling with both flights and accommodation prices at their peak.  In addition, you’ll find that the most popular destinations with limited accommodation book out fairly quickly, not to mention these spots being packed with people.

Hence, if you do have the option to either side of school holidays then this is something to definitely  consider.
