Very Happy!
Five stars! Enjoyed it.

Interesting - off the beaten track
Interesting, but well off the beaten track

I enjoyed what we saw & did of the trail, worth a visit, was hot & we were short of time, the photo boards with information were great.

There is Gold out there!
Just completed the trail and was amazed at just how harsh it is and the history of the once thriving towns north of Coolgardie. The trail was well written and easy to follow but make sure you read the book first to get information about the many old towns and the people who lived there. Great tour for those with a bit of adventure in their blood and a quest for history.
