Over the years many boat owners have been lured south by the diverse and picturesque coastline of Australia's island state.
South Australia has two gulfs where most boating and fishing takes place, however there is more than 5000km of coastline to explore.
Most of Western Australia's vast, untouched coastline is only accessible by boat, which is what makes it so appealing.
