About this park
This park lies on the edge of vast mulga woodlands, features a number of granite outcrops and includes part of Lake Marmion. Take a walk on one of the bushwalking trails. Enjoy the birdsong and attractive wildflowers after good rains.
The Goongarrie homestead complex has a rustic homestead, sandalwood camp and shearer’s cottage in good working order. Campers are welcome here.
Discover Goongarrie’s many important Aboriginal sites. The rockholes and watering points are fascinating.
Goongarrie has a golden past. It was the first important gold find after Coolgardie. During the 1890s, Goongarrie was known as Ninety Mile. It boasted hotels, bed and breakfasts, a Cobb & Co coach stop, and railway. Now, three remaining historic railway cottages are part of the Golden Quest Heritage Trail.
Review – History and landscape I drove out from Kalgoorlie to explore this spot and was just about the only person around. Lovely and quiet with just the birds for company. Pleasant spot to picnic. Good, easy, signed walking trail across rock and through bush. Bush camping available. EJSWA – Trip Advisor
