Welcome to the Pioneer’s Pathway

The Pioneers’ Pathway is the self-drive route that traverses the Wheatbelt following the well worn trail many prospectors once took on their way to the Yilgarn and Kalgoorlie Goldfields.

Pathway Background

Starting in either Northam/Toodyay or Merredin, this scenic journey wanders past expansive wheatbelt farmland and through the small towns of Goomalling, Dowerin, Wyalkatchem, Trayning, Kununoppin and Nungarin, providing a classic experience of Western Australia’s Wheatbelt heartland.

Whether you’re travelling from Perth to the Goldfields, or from the west to east coast, this trip is a rewarding alternative to the Great Eastern Highway direct route, adding only 44 kilometres to the journey. It offers the remarkable view of wildflowers in colourful profusion during the season, invigorating leg-stretching nature walks, as well as numerous buildings and museums reflecting the unique rural historical significance of the region.

The sealed two-lane road along the Pioneers’ Pathway makes the drive a pleasurable experience. Why not create an interesting circuit route by combining the Golden Pipeline Trail between Merredin and Mundaring.
