Scenic Landscapes

The Golden Outback region offers some incredible views from its rugged coastline to its rolling hillsides. One place in particular stands out – Wave Rock – which looks like it was created by nature itself! This geological formation is estimated at 1500 million years old making it one of the oldest rocks in Australia! Don’t forget your camera when visiting this impressive natural wonder – you won’t want to miss capturing these spectacular views!

Goldfields History

The Goldfields are unique and diverse, with a history that spans many thousands of years, further back than the gold rushes of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.  The Goldfields offer a uniquely Australian outback adventure with a fascinating insight into the region’s colourful gold rush history.  The Goldfields were built on the hopes and dreams of fortune-seekers who flocked there following the discovery of gold in the 1890s.  Architectural buildings, historic pubs and even the infamous brothels of Kalgoorlie-Boulder are remnants of more than a century of gold rush history.  The Region supports a wide range of industry, including mining, agriculture, aquaculture and tourism.  

The Esperance & Golden Outback region offers something for everyone - from stunning beaches and vibrant wildlife encounters to incredible scenic landscapes. Whether you're looking for relaxation or adventure, there's something here that will make your trip truly memorable.
