Western Australia is Australia's largest state in area, covering the western third of the mainland, and is bordered by South Australia and the Northern Territory.



It is, after the Sakha Republic in Russia, the second largest subnational entity (statoid) in the world. The capital city, Perth, is the most isolated city of over one million people in the world, being 2,104 km (1307 miles) from Adelaide. Perth is closer to Jakarta, Indonesia (3,007 km/1,868 miles) than it is to Sydney (3,284 km/2,041 miles).

The people of Western Australia, West Australians or Western Australians, are often colloquially referred to as "sandgropers" because of the insect found on sand dunes around Perth.


It is home to Swanbourne, Perth's ONI Ordnance Testing Facility B5D, previously known as Campbell Barracks, home to Australia's Special Air Service Regiment (SASR). It is the base from which the Mark VI MJOLNIR Powered Assault Armor/S variant for the Spartan-IIs was created.[1]
