Take an awe-inspiring adventure through the largest expanse of outback in the country.
The Western Australian outback is the largest expanse of outback in the country, with a mind-blowing diversity of other-worldly landscapes and outback adventures. This vast and ancient land has been two billion years in the making. It’s here that Mother Nature has sculpted some of the world’s most magnificent rock formations, from the Pinnacles to the Bungle Bungle Range.

Switch off your mobiles, tablets and laptops and head north into the heart of the last true wilderness area on Earth, the Kimberley, for a real outback adventure. Follow the legendary Gibb River Road through some of Australia’s most iconic gorge and cattle country and enjoy some country hospitality at the homesteads and outback stations along the way.
Venture east from Perth, to the gold rush hub of Kalgoorlie and discover the real Wild West of Australia. It’s a place of striking contrasts where grand colonial architecture and mammoth modern mining operations give way to wide-open desert landscapes, dotted with shimmering salt lakes and gold rush ghost towns.

Authentic Outback Adventures
That said, going outback in WA doesn’t have to mean leaving the coast and glorious waterways behind. In Kalbarri, Cape Range National Park near Exmouth, Cape Leveque north of Broome, Francois Peron National Park in Shark Bay and Cape Le Grand near Esperance, rock and deep red earth meet white sandy beaches and turquoise waters creating some of the world’s most breathtaking coastal scenery.
While exploring the Western Australian outback, be sure to experience an authentic outback adventure with one of the oldest surviving cultures on Earth on an Indigenous tour, and keep your eyes peeled for a vast array of Australian animals, from crocodiles to the iconic kangaroo.
