Outback WA Area Highlights & Essential Things To Do
Discover Your Local Outback WA Area
The Australian outback features long stretches of hot desert, red sands and wild bushland and Western Australia’s outback is no different. Undoubtedly one the most famous of the outback regions, the desert towns and communities celebrate rich lands and ancient Indigenous histories. The Western Australian outback is home to large and small towns including Kalgoorlie, Lamington, and Somerville.
Help Kalgoorlie celebrate their mining industry at the annual Saint Barbaras Festival held every December or head to Narrogin to celebrate the annual Narrogin Revheads Weekend with activities such as free camping and cars from all over the state.
Like much of Western Australia, the outback is home to its own unique ancient land formations. One of the most popular natural attractions is Wave Rock. Dating back to a time when dinosaurs roamed the lands, Wave Rock is a sight to behold. Often referred to as the ‘Golden Outback’, the lands here are rich in, you guessed it, gold. Visit the largest open cut mine at Super Pit Gold Mine, which is an activity all ages are bound to love.
The Outback region has plenty of things to do and places to go for travellers of all ages. Surround yourself with the biggest and the best the outback has to offer. Take a trip to the desert and mining town of Kalgoorlie or visit a natural lake for a dip in some of the most remote waters in the country.
