Take a detour to Australia’s Golden Outback, and discover the endless, awe-inspiring wild wonderness
of the Gascoyne Murchison region.

Indicate right, turn off the highway and hit the roads less travelled. Journey along ribbons of road through miles of rich, red earth. Discover abandoned gold towns, immerse yourself in ancient culture, meet authentic outback characters and form connections you’ll never forget. Get lost in infinite night skies, and wake to sunrises that will take your breath away.

‘Up the coast’ is a great WA tradition. Hitting highway #1 and following the crowds travelling up the West Australian coastline. But why do what everyone else is doing – again? Take a detour where nature is at its finest, where you’ll experience extraordinary wildlife in its purest habitat, walking trails where you’ll feel like the only humans on earth, mind-blowing starry night skies, ancient landscapes and dreamlike dreamtime stories. Wherever you go, you’ll feel welcomed with true outback hospitality.
