Australia’s Golden Outback
Australia's Golden Outback is the largest of Western Australia's five tourism Regions, covering 54% of the State.
It is a region of contrast from the spectacular Mount Augustus in the north (twice the size of Uluru) to the turquoise waters and the whitest beaches in Australia in Esperance and the Fitzgerald Coast, along the southern outback coast. It is a region that offers thrilling 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 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.
