Description

The landscape of the Northern Goldfields is a unique and varied one, of shifting sands, of stony mountain ranges, eucalypt woodlands, mulga scrub, rivers and creeks, but have you ever considered how the early explorers and pioneers coped with these unfamiliar and unforgiving conditions?

The Great Beyond Explorers Hall of Fame (currently closed until August 2021 due to an expansion) allows visitors to be transported to a time of exploration and endeavour as the heroes of the inland tell their stories of hardship, bravery and perseverance in harsh and dangerous conditions.

As each explorer “speaks” of their experience and reasons for venturing into the unknown, it brings their characters to life like no book can ever achieve.
