Day 2

(FB, MD, Motel) Passing Dumbleyung we visit Donald Campbell’s replica Bluebird. Starting the Holland Way in Broomehill we discover the rich history of the John Holland Track, cut in 1893. Then we start off  following the footsteps of the pioneering John Holland as we retrace the route he cut to the goldfields. You’ll pass by Nyabing and Lake Grace, with its shallow salt lake and a superb lookout. Continue through rich farmland before reaching Newdegate and Hyden.

Re-joining the John Holland Track, we continue on to Victoria Rocks for a stop before arriving at Coolgardie, ‘The Mother of the Goldfields.’ Overnight in Kalgoorlie.

Day 4

(CB, RD, Motel) Today we explore the historic streetscape of Kalgoorlie and its pioneering gold-rush history. A visit to Hannans North Tourist Mine, the WA Kalgoorlie Boulder Museum and the Superpit lookout  overlooking the immense open cut mine. We wander town in the afternoon before dinner at one of Kalgoorlie’s many hotels.

Day 5

(CB, PL, MD, Basic Motel) We begin the Golden Quest Discovery Trail with a stop at the Ghost Town of Kununalling via Siberia and Goongarrie to Menzies. Leaving the highway, we detour to Niagara Dam and the ‘Living Ghost Town’ of Kookynie and the historic Grand Hotel before continuing on to Leonora.

Day 6

(CB, MD, Basic Motel) This morning we explore the restored mining town of Gwalia with the museum and historic Hoover House, built by former US President Herbert Hoover.

The pipe provides the essential water supply to allow the Goldfields to flourish, this ambitious feat was an engineering masterpiece with tragic outcomes.
