Yalgoo, WA

The Yalgoo township can be accessed from the Morawa Yalgoo Road or the Yalgoo Ninghan Road and is located six hours north of Perth.


Yalgoo is a wonderfully historic town, with well preserved buildings from the beginning of the last century. The town was founded in the 1890’s with the discovery of alluvial gold and has a rich gold mining heritage.

The Court House, which was moved from Day Dawn near Cue in 1921, is now a museum with displays of old photographs, lots of gold rush history, the usual displays of old domestic items and some interesting Aboriginal artefacts from the local area.

Wildflowers such as white, cream, yellow and pink everlastings can be viewed from late July to September in the area.

The Shire of Yalgoo offers visitors the unique experience of true Australian life by staying at one of the many working sheep stations. Other accommodation is available at the hotel, caravan park and camping grounds.
