Self-Drive trails traversing the red heart of Western Australia

Local Attractions

There are many attractions of the Gascoyne Murchison region which are easily explored via the Gascoyne Murchison Outback Pathways.

At the right time of year, wildflowers form colourful blankets across the rich red dirt. Being a relatively dry region, water sources are the essential home for birdlife which makes for fantastic bird watching at these areas.

The Gascoyne Murchison is station country, so why not make the most of friendly outback hospitality by visiting some of the Station Stays along the Outback Pathways. Stations offer a range of accommodation from indulgent homestead stays to remote bush camping. Many of these stations also offer tours of their properties.

The rocks in the Gascoyne Murchison are some of the oldest rocks in the world, making the area perfect for those interested in geology. Even if you're not a geologist at heart you'll be blown away by the magnificent rock formations in the region.

Along the Gascoyne Murchison Outback Pathways you'll experience the clearest of clear outback skies allowing for pristine star gazing.

These are just some of the local attractions that the Gascoyne Murchison region offers. Purchase the Outback Pathways Guidebook for more information about what you can experience in this fascinating area.
