WA’s Golden Outback region covers 54% of Western Australia featuring a network of roads with vast, everchanging scenery tailored to both coastal beach lovers and outback adventurers.
“The road trips in WA’s Golden Outback are spectacular ranging from short 1-hour routes to multi-day adventures through a diverse range of landscapes and experiences. It’s definitely a case of the journey being just as important as the destination.” said CEO of Australia’s Golden Outback, Marcus Falconer.
“Road trips, more than ever now, are a great way for people to get away from it all and focus on their connection with friends and family, whilst having a great adventure. Research also suggests that people are wanting to travel more consciously, supporting smaller communities and avoiding large crowds” he said.
The Australia’s Golden Outback region spans across 4 subregions covering Esperance & the Fitzgerald Coast, The Wheatbelt, The Goldfields and Gascoyne Murchison.
The road trips in each subregion take on their lands theme and experiences.
