Anyway I knew a friend that went to Texas and she is from Europe and she did not like it, she much prefered Australia and decided to move out here and lives in Western Australia now.

Yet I know a work collegue and she visited Texas for the first time and loved it.

My brother went to Western Australia Kimberley region (rainforest region) and he loved it.

Texas and Western Australia are not very similar as there are more people in Texas than the whole of Australia. There is only one city in Western Australia and that is Perth. Perth is the most isolated city in the world. Perth is not very appealing for me. Yet the Kimberley region is much more appealing than Perth.

I stater that the cities in Texas are better.

Yet I would have to say the natural beauty is better in Western Australia due to the Kimberely region. That is in contrast for most of Western Australia which is covered in desert.

The nightlife in Texas would be better as there are more people and more places to go at night in the cities to choose from.

The weather in Western Australia is better, especially in places such as Perth and places south of Perth.

Safety is better in Western Australia than Texas.

Texas is older than Western Australia and it used to be part of Mexico and Spain. Yet Western Australia used to only be part of the UK.

I would say the culture of Texas and Western Australia is a tie.

That is a matter of personal opinion. I don't find Spanish or British culture better than another. Anyway Western Australia hosts one of the oldest cultures in the world and they are the native Aboriginals. There are parts of that state where even they live largely in their traditional state and speak their own languages. The have been there longer than the Native Americans in America.

I think Texas wins this one.

Texas has about the same population as all of Australia, I think

Now if it was New South Wales.....Texas might not win that battle

I'm from WA and I've been to Texas so I think I can give an informed opinion. They're really pretty difficult to compare: WA is the largest state in Australia and 2.5 million km2, which is 4 times the size of Texas, the largest state in the lower 48. Both I suppose have a lot of wide open spaces, are thought of as arid and kind of wild, with a kind of redneck culture. I only really went to Austin and Lubbock...Austin is kind of like Perth superficially, but of course culturally they're very different. Both Perth and Texan cities are really sprawling and car-dominated. I don't find most of Texas' natural scenery that exciting compared to other states, i think the mountains in the west and the hill country are nice. WA's best assets are the Southwest, Pilbara and Kimberley. It's an incredibly remote but spiritual place.

Why? After reading this thread Texas seems to be a small over-crowded little place that's lost track of its frontier heritage.....

More seriously, WA has has some great places if you're into surf or wine culture.

Some of the best beaches in the world are here in Western Australia. It is a vast state that is completely different down south than the northern part. I don't see any comparison with Texas at all.

Texas would fit into Western Australia 4 times.

Western Australia has two distinct variations in seasons. The southern half of the state, which includes Perth, experiences the four seasons of spring, summer, autumn and winter whereas the northern half of the state has two seasons; “the wet” and “the dry”.

It has some of the most unique scenery that you will see no where else on the planet. It is really not comparable to anywhere else.

Western Australia is diverse.
