Australia's Golden Outback

Covering a vast area of Western Australia, Australia's Golden Outback includes such amazing places like the world class Fitzgerald River National Park to the goldfields of Kalgoorlie and the expanses of the Wheatbelt. Dotted throughout this breathtaking landscape are some great trails that I will endeavour to visit in my travels throughout this great state.

With such a grand area to cover this might take a while but I'm excited to explore this wild section of WA and report back with stories, photos and helpful hints.

A beautiful and diverse park located between Albany and Esperance, Fitzgerald River is home to some epic hiking, some world class campsites and some pristine beaches for you to enjoy.
