Welcome to the Shire of Yalgoo

...........Where the outback starts!    

Just six hours north of Perth, or two hours east of Geraldton, Yalgoo is the ideal place to start your outback adventure. This historic mining town is the closest base for an outback experience from Western Australia's capital.

Yalgoo's rich gold mining heritage and many working sheep stations, a lot of which are now open for farm stays, make it a perfect escape for a true Aussie holiday. Catching glimpses of Australian wildlife, from kangaroos and emus to the large bungarra lizards, you can tap into the real Australia, making it an experience you will never forget.

If you're looking for accommodation there are comfortable places to stay right in the heart of Yalgoo, or get off the beaten track and enjoy budget or homestead accommodation with a  Station Stay.'image description'
