One of the largest wildflower collections on earth. 

Under vast outback skies, prepare to be dazzled by Australia's whitest beach at Lucky Bay, the rich gold rush heritage of the Goldfields, stunning carpets of wildflowers in its National Parks and the world’s largest outdoor art gallery, created by world-renowned sculptor Antony Gormley.

The more adventurous can also get their kicks riding one of the nation's biggest waves at Wave Rock, scaling the world's largest monolith at Mount Augustus, or blazing a trail along the longest and most remote stock routes, including the legendary Outback Way.

There’s plenty of ways you can include Kalgoorlie and the Golden Outback region in your extraordinary holiday.  Simply hop on a flight from Perth and begin your outback adventure. Or embark on a road trip of a lifetime by hiring a four wheel drive and hitting the red dirt highways.
