When people want to see the real outback, they visit Kalgoorlie.
A scenic drive from Perth, the journey to Kalgoorlie is all part of the experience and a must-do pilgrimage for caravanners. En route, you’ll be treated to ever-changing landscapes of historic gold rush towns, eucalypt woodlands and vast sand plains, contrasting with spectacular displays of spring wildflowers.
Starting in the north in August and finishing in the south in December over 12,000 wildflower species are scattered across the Goldfields region providing carpets of pink, yellow and white stretching as far as the eye can see.
Kalgoorlie is also home of the 18th hole of the world’s longest golf course. From Hole 1 in Ceduna, South Australia the Nullarbor Links covers 1,365 kilometres. Each hole, located at towns and roadhouses along the highway includes a green, a tee and somewhat rugged outback-style natural terrain fairway providing a quintessential Australian experience for golf enthusiasts.
Once you arrive in Kalgoorlie the classic architecture and the nearby gold miners' ghost towns will take you back to the romance of the grand era of the 1880s. Famed for its gold rush history the town remains an active mining centre today and the 3.5km long, 1.5km wide Super Pit Mine is a sight to behold.

Featuring all the modern conveniences of home, fully self-contained cabins and plenty of powered sites, the park provides you with the perfect environment to relax after a day exploring the rustic outback.
