Follow in the tracks of pioneer John Holland on a three-day Holland Track adventure through the Great Western Woodlands – the largest intact Mediterranean-climate woodland on Earth – and one of the world’s most impressive displays of spring wildflowers.
Starting in Broomehill, a three-and-a-half-hour drive from Perth, a host of natural and cultural treasures await on the 670-kilometre track, which weaves its way on sealed and unsealed roads from the southern Wheatbelt to the historic Goldfields town of Coolgardie.
Visit Lake Grace, where you can take in sweeping panoramas of the vast salt lake and glimpse early settler life at the Inland Mission Hospital.
Traverse the Great Western Woodlands – an area so vast and biologically rich it’s considered as internationally significant as Africa’s Serengeti.
Explore the birthplace of the gold rush, Coolgardie, one of Australia’s best preserved gold mining towns and the starting point for another great road trip – the Golden Quest Discovery Trail.
Accommodation options for your Holland Track adventure range from basic outback camping to farm stays and heritage hotels.
Please note, the trail begins on sealed roads but becomes increasingly challenging and remote. A high-clearance four-wheel-drive, with emergency communications and recovery equipment, is strongly recommended.
