The Holland Track was first blazed in 1893 by a team led by John Holland looking to create a shortcut to the booming Goldfields from Albany. Starting at Broome Hill, the now popular 4WD route is a great trip to undertake with a small convoy over a extended long weekend.
Approximately 700kms in length, the track passes through sections of the Great Southern, Wheat Belt and Goldfields regions of Western Australia, including the largest intact area of Mediterranean climate woodlands left in the world.
The Cave Hill Woodlines forms part of the greater Woodlines network which were used to supply wood to the Goldfields in support of the mining operations there. Sections of the woodlines were in operation until as late as the mid 1960’s.
