Just a short distance north of Kalgoorlie are the well-kept remains of Goongarrie Homestead.

Goongarrie

Encompassing roughly 60,000 hectares, the Goongarrie Homestead was once a working sheep station. The three remaining buildings on the site are a testament to its former function, with the shearers cottage still standing. The other two cottages belonged to the main house and the sandlewood camp. All three can be rented.

Starting at the homestead is the 3km Nganamarta Trail, guiding you through some of the beautiful landscape around the homestead. Numerous animals, insects and plants can be seen along the walk.

The station and the surrounding national park was purchased by the state government in 1995 and since then has functioned as a very popular camping and walking spot for locals and travellers. The land has always hosted a diverse number of plants and animals, with over 58 reptiles and amphibians, 95 birds species and 21 native mammals being found during surveys.
