...........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. From late July to September, the surrounding area is carpeted in Western Australian wildflowers, such as white, cream, yellow and pink everlastings.
Experience the Outback in this historic town that is full of character, with well preserved turn-of-the-century buildings and a rich gold mining heritage. Yalgoo was founded in the 1890s with the discovery of alluvial gold, and there are plenty of reminders of the town’s wild gold rush days, including the railway station, cemetery, Monsignor Hawes - the convent chapel, Jokers Tunnel and the Court House Museum.
Located on the Geraldton to Mount Magnet Road, east of Mullewa, Yalgoo can also be accessed from the Morawa Yalgoo Road or the Yalgoo Ninghan Road.

Tap into the real Australia! Yalgoo has several working sheep stations which are open for farm stays. Catch a glimpse of Australian wildlife and make it an experience you will never forget!
