Australia's Golden Outback Holiday Planner 2022/23

kalgoorlie & the goldfields Road Trips

LEONORA LOOP TRAILS 2 days | Unsealed and sealed roads These two outback adventure drives in WA’s historic Northern Goldfields retell the social history of what was often a struggle for survival by early European settlers. Both loops start and finish in Leonora. Take them alone or together in a 430km drive around the outside. The Agnew and Darlot Trails each have 15 interpretive sites spaced roughly 15-30kms apart. At these locations you will find an interpretive panel and, somewhere nearby, a figure, a ‘ghost’ from the past or a creature from the present, waiting to share a story with you. Take the Agnew Loop (298.4km) until the Darlot-Weebo Road, 15km south of the Lawlers-Darlot Track site (30 km south of Leinster). Then join the Darlot Loop (345.8km) at the same junction, and head east to the Transition Zone site and then on to Darlot, Nambi and beyond.
