According to a recent study by Have Halal, Will Travel (HHWT), modern Muslim travellers are young, affluent and experiment-driven. They are independent travellers who set aside part of their savings to wander around the world. Much like millennials, these travellers consistently choose and plan their own itineraries over packaged tours.
Fuelled by technology and globalization, modern Muslim travellers value authentic local experiences, and an ardent desire to immerse in the local culture while not missing out on local halal food.
Here is a guide for modern Muslim travellers to Western Australia!
Perth is the capital of the Australian state of Western Australia and is also the largest city in Western Australia. This vibrant city governs a wide array of religions and is home to an increasing number of Muslims. Thus, Muslim travellers will not need to worry to locate mosques and Halal restaurants as well as other Muslim friendly facilities in and around Perth.
Perth is one of the most amazing multicultural cities where you can enjoy all types of ethnic foods. With a growing demand for Halal food from locals and visitors alike. Halal options are easily found; not only in Middle Eastern grocery shops, but also in fast-food restaurants, cafes, bakeries, Asian and even Western cuisine restaurants.
4 Halal restaurants in Perth!
– Insan’s Café (Murray Street)
– Makan2 (Victoria Park)
– Satay on Charcoal (South Perth)
– MyRasa (Welwyn Road)
As much as Muslim travellers are always on the move, they would need to take a break during their journey and spend the night somewhere. Not so much to burn a hole in their pockets, they are always looking for better deals and offers on accommodation.
Perth now offers some of the best-value hotel and short stay accommodations in Australia following the raft of new and refurbished properties that have opened in the CBD and surrounding urban and coastal areas. Not only are visitors enjoying more choice in accommodation, they’re also saving with Perth hoteliers offering up some great deals.
Since 2012, 24 new or redeveloped hotels have opened in and around Perth, adding more than 2,200 new rooms to the local market. In the next four years, a further 15 new or redeveloped hotels will come online, adding more than 2,300 new rooms.

The best part about Western Australia is that it consists of five different regions in which you can personally craft your very own itinerary from a wide and massive variety of trips and activities.
Perth & Surrounds
Start your day with a visit to Kings Park and marvel at the awesome city and rivers. Catch a train, join a cruise, or drive to the colourful port city of Fremantle. Browse the quirky shops, grab a coffee and bask in the atmosphere of the Cappuccino Strip. For lunch, feast on delicious local halal seafood at the Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour.
Moving around Perth is a breeze for Muslim travellers as there are several mosques in the city and its suburbs. Due to Perth’s active Muslim community, finding a mosque to do your prayers has never been this easy for travellers. The Perth Mosque is the oldest mosque and it is centrally located and easily accessible.

Margaret River and the South West
Go on a 140 kilometre Cape to Cape Track spanning between Cape Naturaliste and Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse and breath in extraordinary coast scenery. Explore the magical cave systems in Margaret River, with over 150 highly decorated limestone caves that lay beneath the surface of the Leeuwin Naturaliste Ridge.
The Coral Coast
A visit to Nambung National Park is a must on any Coral Coast adventure. You will be mesmerized by the unique landscapes of the Pinnacles Desert. Featuring thousands of limestone spires up to five metres tall explore the desert on the designated four kilometre driving trail or stroll through them at your own pace on the 1.2 kilometre trail. There is plenty more to explore in this part of Western Australia, including Kalbarri National Park, and the World Heritage listed sites of Shark Bay and Ningaloo Reef.
Esperance and the Golden Outback
If you dream of a real Australian outdoor adventure, look no further than Mount Augustus – Australia’s largest rock, surrounded by rich red earth, rugged ranges, ancient rock features, vast sheep and cattle stations, Aboriginal culture and awesome drive trails.
In stark contrast to the red earth of the Outback, there is also Australia’s whitest beach, Lucky Bay located at Esperance. The brilliant blue water and snow-white beaches of Esperance and the southern coast provides a spectacular coastal backdrop to a region of magnificent national parks and unspoilt marine playgrounds.
Modern Muslim travellers will find Western Australia a wonderful coalition of experiences, sights and senses. Perfect for huge families, casual trips with friends and packs a punch of adventures and new encounters. Let’s go and Experience Extraordinary at Western Australia.
