Perth the Second Most Isolated City in the World
- after Honolulu Bottom arrow

The longest awarded bush walk trail in Australia - slide show

Bibbulmun Track Journey 1,000kms (621 miles)


We believed Perth was the most isolated city - as stated by other Web pages on the Net:


  1. www.telegraph.co.uk
  2. nxherald New Zealand newspaper
  3. Discover West Holidays

The most isolated city is in fact Honolulu in Hawaii with its nearest city being Dalap-Uliga-Darrit or Majuro on the Atoll of Majuro in the Marshall Islands - 3,673km or 2,282 miles away. Some might say it is a collection of three communities or towns with a total population of 25,400 (2004), but it is listed as the capital city of Majuro and does have an International Airport the same as Hawaii.  The above statement has been changed to - the most isolated city in Australia or the SECOND most isolated city in the world. The record is now straight 11/05/05

(P. S. It is the most isolated city in Australia)


Australia is the only country which occupies a whole continent - albeit the smallest continent on earth. It is 7,682,300 square kilometres (2,966,152 square miles) in size and is the sixth largest country of the world. Australia is situated south-east of Asia and is surrounded by the Pacific Ocean to the east, the Arafura Sea to the north, the Indian Ocean to the west, and the Southern Ocean to the south.

Located in the Southern Hemisphere, Australia's seasons are opposite to those of the Northern Hemisphere. Spring is from September to November, summer from December to February, autumn from March to May and winter from June to August.

Western Australia

Western Australia is the largest State in Australia and covers nearly one-third of the entire Australian continent (2,525,500 km², 1 million square miles). Western Australia's coastline is 12,500 km (7,813 miles) long and spans 2,400 km (1,500 miles) from north to south.
