Western Australia’s Golden Outback is truly a land of contrast. In the Gascoyne-Murchison region to the north, you can climb the the world’s largest rock, Mount Augustus (twice the size of Ayers Rock). And in the south you can walk on the whitest beaches in Australia at Cape Le Grand National Park, near Esperance.
The golden plains of the Wheatbelt region are dotted with quaint historic towns and unique billion-year-old granite outcrops and home to the famous Wave Rock. And in stark contrast, the Goldfields are a land of rich red soil and wild gold rush history.
