Astro-friendly accommodation in WA

Hi everyone!

I'm planning to visit WA for astro-imaging and sightseeing in Feb 2019 (Yup I'm THAT excited!) with my wife. Would the weather be nice at that time?

Would anyone recommend any accommodation, inn or motel that would be suitable for astro-imaging around Perth ? My itinerary is still under progress so I welcome any suggestions.

Thanks!

Best wishes
Paul

Weather for Western Australia in Feb
Southern WA around Perth is pretty clear
Northern WA in monsoon very cloudy

If you can come in July, northern WA say Broome, is almost completely clear.

I have attached February and July 3pm cloud maps. Unfortunately, only 9am or 3pm cloud maps are available. Night time cloud is not recorded and not the same as 3pm but this gives you an indication.

The Central Milky Way Scorpius / Sagittarius is overhead in July.
