Western Australia

Experience the outback in Yalgoo, just six hours north of Perth or two east of Geraldton. From late July to September, the surrounding area is covered in Western Australia wildflowers. The heart of central Western Australia provides wide open space, clear blue skies, and landscapes only mother nature could possibly be responsible for.

This historic town is full of character, with well-preserved turn-of-the-century buildings and rich gold mining heritage. Yalgoo was founded in the 1980’s with the discovery of alluvial gold, and there are plenty of reminders of the town’s wild gold rush days, including the railway station, cemetery, Monisgnor Hawes- the convent chapel, Jokers Tunnel and the Court House Museum.

The “Gascoyne Murchison Outback Pathways” are 3 self-drive outback adventures, great for 4WD enthusiasts. Each pathway provides historic route through the Outback, with Yalgoo a stop in two – The Wool Wagon Pathway and the Miner’s Pathway.
