Land of Gold by UrtheCast Gallery
This week, we take a closer look at the intricately textured, often golden, terrain of Western Australia — from the heart of its deserts, to the shores of its beautiful coastline. Western Australia forms approximately one third of the entire landmass of Australia, and its capital, Perth, is the fourth-largest city in the country. The state is flanked by the Timor Sea to the north, the Indian Ocean to the west and north, and the Southern Ocean to the south. Learn more, here.
