The Yalgoo township can be accessed from the Morawa Yalgoo Road or the Yalgoo Ninghan Road and is located six hours north of Perth. Yalgoo is a wonderfully historic town, with well preserved buildings from the beginning of the last century. The town was founded in the 1890s with the discovery of alluvial gold and has a rich gold mining heritage. The Court House, which was moved from Day Dawn near Cue in 1921, is now a museum with displays of old photographs, lots of gold rush history, the usual displays of old domestic items and some interesting Aboriginal artefacts from the local area. Located at the end of Henty Street, the Convent Chapel is a Yalgoo landmark. Built in 1919 for the Dominican Sisters, it is one of the many masterpieces throughout the mid west of Monsignor John Hawes. Ten kilometres south of Yalgoo, Joker's Tunnel was carved though solid rock by early gold prospectors. Named after the Joker mining syndicate, the tunnel presents many different rock types. It is also a lovely location to see fauna native to the area. If you want to see native Australian wildlife, Yalgoo is the ideal place to visit. Emus love the outback, and just as your outback experience starts in Yalgoo, so too does your best opportunity to spot these iconic birds racing through the bush. Wedge tail eagles, kangaroos and lizards are also plentiful in the region. Wildflowers such as white, cream, yellow and pink everlastings can be viewed from late July through to September. The Shire of Yalgoo offers visitors the unique experience of true Australian life by staying at one of the many working sheep stations. Other accommodation is available at the hotel, caravan park and camping grounds.
