Welcome to Gascoyne Coast
Subtropical Carnarvon, the region's hub, is an important fruit- and vegetable-growing district, and farms are often looking for seasonal workers. For travellers, it's usually seen as a handy place to restock, but not much more – but with time up your sleeve and a desire to get well off the beaten path, consider the option of heading north from Carnarvon along the Quobba coast.
The 760km Gascoyne River, WA's longest, is responsible for all that fruity lushness, though it flows underground for most of the year. Inland, the distances are huge and the temperatures high; here you'll find the ancient eroded rocks of the Kennedy Range.
