Where you’ll be working

The Goldfields-Esperance region is located in the south-eastern corner of Western Australia and is the largest region in the state with a land area of 771,276 square kilometres. The region is three times the size of the state of Victoria and just under a third of Western Australia’s total land mass. Approximately 55,000 people live here with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people representing about twelve percent of the population. The character of the Goldfields-Esperance region reflects the unique Aboriginal culture, the legacies of early mining and agricultural pioneers and a multi-cultural history of interstate and international migration.

The region includes Western Australia’s Golden Outback which stretches from the rugged red earth of the Northern Goldfields and Great Western Woodland to the sweeping snow-white beaches of Esperance and the South Coast.

The coastal Esperance zone boasts a range of stunning natural attractions including national parks, Kepwari Wetland Walk Trail, Woody Island and Lake Monjingup, which exhibit coastal scenery, extraordinary flora and fauna, peaceful bushwalks and well-maintained campgrounds.

Heading inland Kalgoorlie-Boulder is Australia’s largest outback city and the heart of Western Australia’s Goldfields region. With a population of more than 30,000, the city is a dynamic and sophisticated regional centre. The area offers astounding diversity and beauty in its national parks and reserves, tranquil eucalyptus forests, wide sweeping plains, dry lake beds, low lying scrub land and spinifex fields.
