Nature and wildlife experiences in Western Australia's Golden Outback are truly out of this world. From the soaring heights of Mount Augustus in the north and the deep blue waters of the Recherche Archipelago in the south, to the famous Wave Rock in the Wheatbelt region.
Nature’s calendar is full of unique and spectacular events, including the annual migration of whales, the nesting season for migratory and native birds and, of course, the bloom of brilliantly coloured Western Australian wildflowers in winter and spring.
The untouched wilderness of the region's national parks and reserves are also home to an incredibly diverse variety of plants and animal life. Here, you can encounter everything from tiny, endangered marsupials inhabiting woodlands, to birds and lizards thriving in the harsh deserts of the Australian Outback.
In the Murchison region you can view some of the oldest rock formations in the world – enormous boulders and ranges which have dominated the landscape since the beginning of time. Many of these rocks are the subject of fascinating Indigenous Dreamtime stories, and also provide the perfect vantage point for experiencing the spectacle of a real Australian outback sunset.
