must see, must do
The true spirit of adventure lives on in Australia's Golden Outback. The Goldfields have been luring many a curious traveller since the heady days of the 1890s goldrush. Historic buildings, ghost towns, the richest square mile on earth, and the prospect of striking it lucky will almost certainly draw you in. This is your chance to experience an unconditional country lifestyle and also get accquainted with a few of our truly massive natural wonders, like Wave Rock and Mount Augustus.
If that's not enough, the region boasts some absolutely indescribable coastal scenery; the most brilliantly coloured wildflowers, the most crystal of blue waters, and whitest sand beaches you can imagine.
Visit the official Australia's Golden Outback website for all the information you need to know about travelling in the region, including self driving itineraries and maps.
when to go?
Australia's Golden Outback is vast, taking up more than half of Western Australia, and climate varies quite significantly depending on the latitude of the area you are visiting, as well as its proximity to the coast. Inland, the climate is quite arid, so rainfall decreases and temperature range increases to an average of 37°C in the summer months. Worth noting is that the end of winter heralds the explosion of gorgeous wildflowers around the state, most beautifully represented in the Golden Outback region. For more information about climate and weather in Australia's Golden Outback, have a look at the Bureau of Meteorolgy.
