Wander Out Yonder To Our Golden Outback
It’s big, beautiful and billions of years old. Allan and Michelle know it’s a bit tricky to travel at the moment, but when we have the best places in the world right on our own doorstop, why not travel within our own great state!
Let’s spark The Outback Adventurer within, with some Golden Outback travel inspo!
Here’s your chance to discover historic townships, spectacular desert wilderness, quirky outback charm, gold-rush history and the Southern Ocean’s perfect white beaches, all without crossing a border!
Just out of Esperance, set up at some of Australia’s most picturesque campsites near Lucky Bay. Take the top down along the 40-kilometre Great Ocean Drive. And you just have to take a stunning selfie or award-worthy pano shot of the remarkable bright pink Lake Hillier on Middle Island.
There is nothing like it on the Planet: See the 51 life-sized steel statues installed across the striking salt flats of Lake Ballard for yourself. A stunning creation by acclaimed sculptor Antony Gormley.
C’mon…when’s the last time you reeaallly checked out Kalgoorlie’s famous Super Pit. Travel deep into gold-rush territory along the 965-kilometre trek from Coolgardie to Laverton. There’s a few pubs to visit too if your throat gets a bit dusty.
Leave your board at home, and get ready for Wave Rock. You’ll find this remarkable 110 metre, multi-coloured granite cliff carved in time near Hyden.
Make sure you visit in Spring, and be surrounded by beautiful wildflowers in full bloom.
Know a mad-keen golfer? Pack the clubs for the world’s longest golf course: the 1,365 kilometre Nullarbor Links. Horse lover? Make time to see the collection of 70 equine artworks at Kulin. Love a good old doggo? Experience a touching tribute to man’s best friend at the Corrigin Dog Cemetery. Just some of the country quirkiness along the Tin Horse Highway.
So while we have to stay home, doesn’t mean we can’t holiday. It’s time to travel further, stay for longer and make the most of your freedom. In Western Australia, we’re free to wander out yonder. Go forth WA, visit westernaustralia.com.
