Trails: Golden Outback

www.australiasgoldenoutback.com

Covering vast areas of Western Australia, Australia’s Golden Outback is a region of rich and stirring contrast, from the rare beauty of the deep red earth and Mt Augustus, to the snow white beached and turquoise waters of Esperance.

Australia’s Golden Outback offers a surprising diversity of outstanding holiday experiences. 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 natural landscape is and artistic display of outback plains, lakes, woodlands, rocky outcrops and beautiful beaches. Late winter and early spring bring dazzling displays of wildflowers, transforming the countryside into a picture postcard of colour and texture.

The Gold Rush country of the 1800’s has a deep sense of both history and legend woven into its town and trails. Many great pioneering innovations are still to be seen across the state as testimony to the forging of Western Australia.

Australia’s Golden Outback is a region where driving is an adventure in itself, and the area of offers a large network of gazetted pathways and 4WD tracks.

The southern coast provides numerous pristine white beaches, aquamarine water and a variety of fascinating wildlife such as birds, dolphins, whales, seals and other marine life.

It’s a region that loves to celebrate its rich diversity on many forms, and a full calendar of events, festivals and fairs means there is always something for every holidaymaker to enjoy.
