Southern Art and Craft Trail
Held in mid-September every year, the art trail promotes fine art and craft created by artists living and working in the Great Southern region. Art is on display in studios, galleries, cafes, wineries and varied exhibitions.
The Holland Track
The Holland Track is a popular outback 4WD track from Broomehill in the Great Southern to Coolgardie in the Great Western Woodlands. Slashed from the bush during the goldrush of the 1890s, the Holland track was a short-lived alternative route to the Eastern Goldfields. At the time, it was claimed that the original 500km course between Broomehill and Gnarlbine Rock (south west of Coolgardie) was the longest cart track ever cut in one stretch in WA. It took John Holland, brothers Rudolph and David Krakouer, and John Carmody two months and four days to complete.
