Best Outback Holiday Spots Western Australia
Planning to venture out into the vast Western Australian outback? Take a look at our top picks for the best holiday spots and make the most of your adventure!
Head north east of Perth and discover the town of Kalgoorlie. Famous for its mining culture, the town has plenty of spots where you can experience it for yourself. Learn more about living life as a miner with a visit to Super Pit Gold Mine, the largest open-pit gold mine in the country. Want to spot as many native animals as possible while you’re in the outback? Pay a visit to Eyre Bird Observatory and keep your eyes and ears peeled to the sights and sounds of native birds.
The outback doesn’t have to mean red deserts and sweeping plains. Coral Coast offers holiday seekers the chance to explore some of the most thrilling World Heritage Listed places in the state, just two hours north of Perth. Heritage listed sites include the infamous Hamelin Pool in Shark Bay. Explore The Pinnacles inland or head to the water and take advantage of Ningaloo Ecology Cruises. There’s plenty to keep you busy in the Coral Coast region!
SOUTH WEST REGION
Head south for a holiday among vineyards, beautiful beaches and plenty of native animals. The outback can sometimes seem like a tropical paradise! Head to Albany to see the effect of the ocean on rock formation at The Gap and Natural Bridge and keep your eye on the blowhole for a loud water display like no other! Not too keen on the coast? Make the most of Lake Cave and delve deep into underground caves, millions of years old.
Where else in the world can you climb to the moon or watch water fall horizontally? The Kimberley offers the most unique and authentic Australian outback experiences. Time your holiday well and you’ll get to watch the natural phenomenon Staircase to the Moon. Don’t worry if you miss out, there are plenty more unique natural sights in the region including the Horizontal Falls. End your holiday on a picturesque high and walk along Cable Beach on camel back during sunset.
Head east of Perth and discover the town of Hyden. Hyden is known for arguably the most popular attraction in outback Western Australia, Wave Rock. Standing 14 metres high, it is one of the largest waves in the world - the difference is that it is made of rock and not water. Explore this site of Indigenous significance, and don’t forget to bring your camera along! Best of all, day trips are run from Perth to the rock if you would prefer not to stay in the outback overnight.
