22 Reasons Western Australia Is The Greatest State In Australia

Life’s easier on the west side.

1. There is only one season. SUMMER.

2. We have QUOKKAS!

These little guys are only found in the wild on a few coastal islands. They’re most commonly found on Rottnest Island.

3. And over 100 SPECIES OF SNAKE!

Because we don’t like visitors.

4. We’re closer to Jakarta than Sydney.

5. And on a Risk Board we pretty much DOMINATE South Australia.

6. I mean seriously LOOK HOW BIG WE ARE.

7. Perth is the sunniest capital city in the world.

Grabbing an average of 8 hours of full sun a day!

8. And the most isolated capital city as well.

But it’s OUT OF CHOICE.

9. We’ve got great beaches.

11. And when we’re thirsty we’ve got out own brew!

The Little Creatures Brewery is the perfect place to relax.

12. We’ve also got a huge park that runs through our capital city that is BIGGER THAN CENTRAL PARK.

This is what it would look like if NYC and Perth merged. You’re welcome.

Okay so this is open to interpretation but it is called ‘Perth.’

14. And we’re rich!
