The Goldfields-Esperance region of Western Australia is vast and diverse, from the rich red deserts with mineral wealth, the magnificent Great Western Woodlands, to the iconic white sandy beaches and crystal clear waters of the Southern Ocean.

We recognise their continuing connection to land, waters and community and pay our respect to them and their cultures.
