Stay informed...

In Western Australia you need to be aware of potential hazards. You may encounter fires, floods and extreme weather conditions, or animals like kangaroos, cattle and wedge-tailed eagles.

The road rules for Western Australia are in the Drive Safe Handbook which can be viewed or downloaded from the Publications page on the website of the Department of Transport. This page also links to a brochure for overseas drivers.

Before driving any distance we recommend checking road condition reports, the roadworks & road closures page and links to useful information on other agencies websites, including:
