The Wheatbelt is a patchwork of golden fields, character townships, pioneering history, fun farm stays, festivals and self drive experiences.
Australia's Golden Outback is remote - many parks are not accessible by conventional road vehicle, and some places cannot be reached overland in any vehicle.
If you don't have a 4WD or don't want to drive here, there are a number of companies in the regional centres that rent them. If you travel independently make sure you're familiar with all the advice and references for further information in the KNOW section (particularly 'getting around', 'safety' and 'travelling in the remote') and on 4WD and adventure motorcycling. Away from parks and main roads, you may need the permission of traditional custodians (go to Department of Aboriginal Affairs) or pastoral station managers (go to Department of Regional Development and Lands) for access.
From July to early November the Wheatbelt comes alive with everlastings, acacia, hakea, grevillea, leschenaultia, wreath flowers and orchids. Wildflowers are dependent on seasonal rain, so check with Visitor Centres before heading off to explore.
