ABOUT THIS REGION The wild outback history of Western Australia played a highly important role in shaping the future of the entire state. As well as a rich Indigenous history and heritage, the Golden Outback is the birth place of Western Australia’s gold rush era, and where the early pastoral pioneers laid the foundations for today’s agricultural industry. Western Australia’s Golden Outback is a vast and surprisingly diverse region of outback Australia. Covering 54 per cent of WA, it stretches from the rugged red earth of Mt Augustus in the north of the Gascoyne-Murchison region to the sweeping snow-white beaches of Esperance and the South Coast. 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 wild gold rush days. And in the Wheatbelt to the west, picturesque rolling farmland is dotted with colourful rural townships. Australia's Golden Outback region provides diverse outback tourism opportunities and holiday destinations. The natural landscape is a dazzling display of outback plains, huge deserts and salt lakes, rugged rocky outcrops, wild woodland and some of the whitest beaches in the world. Spring time transforms the region with a rainbow of blooming Western Australian wildflowers. Australia's Golden Outback is home to the famous Wave Rock formations.
