Australia's Golden Outback is the largest of Western Australia's five tourism regions, covering an area 54% of the state.

It is a region that offers self-drive adventures, gold rush history, ghost towns, beach holidays and unique station and farm stays. Visitors can immerse themselves in a fascinating and memorable mix of nature, history, adventure and discovery - all against the dramatic backdrops of blue skies, wide horizons or spectacular oceans. The region encompasses a number of unique tourism assets including a fantastic range of wildflowers during the spring months of July to November. At the very heart of Western Australia’s Golden Outback lies the modern mining hub of Kalgoorlie and the Goldfields, offering fascinating insights into the history and heritage of the gold rush days. And in the Wheatbelt to the west, picturesque rolling farmland is dotted with colourful rural townships. The region is criss-crossed by roads, trails, tracks and pathways that resonate with Western Australia’s pioneering past. A network of quality sealed roads takes visitors through the region, with many linked to exciting and challenging gazetted pathways and trails that offer a range of interpretive signs at points of interest along the way.Read More
