The John Holland Way and the HollandTrack
On the John Holland Way you can follow the traces of John Holland’s 1893 epic journey when he and his partners cut the now famous Holland Track. This was used by gold miners to travel to Coolgardie and Kalgoorlie. Much of the original route of the Holland Track now passes through private property,
nature reserves or is part of the local road network. There are still many points of interest
relating to Holland and his party to be found along the John Holland Way which follows the track as closely as possible on sealed and unsealed roads suitable for conventional two wheel drive vehicles and caravans. Explore the salt lakes along the ancient river systems and enjoy the spectacular spring wildflowers, Dragon Rocks Nature Reserve, the historical Lake Biddy town site, Holland Rock and Holland Tank.
