Leonora - WA RVFT


Leonora is located 230 kilometres north of Kalgoorlie in the northern goldfields of Western Australia. The area is extremely arid with summer temperatures of 37C. It has a small population of around 400 people a third of who are of Aboriginal descent. The town has maintained much of its history with its wide main street and collection of historic buildings some of which retain their original uses.

Those visiting Leonora can find short term parking at Gwalia Historical Museum situated on Kane Sreet. Parking is strictly for self-contained vehicles only and stays are limited to 72 hours. A dump point and potable water can be found at the Leonora Tourist Information Centre located in Tower Street.

While it maintains much of its original character the shire has been revamped to create a clean and attractive central business district with modern services and facilities. Leonora is home to the Golden Gift event the richest mile running race in Australia. With a prize pool of $50000 it attracts athletes from near and far. The event is held over the long weekend in June and is supported by horse racing and free public entertainment with bands market stalls and fireworks. Another popular attraction is the Gwalia Mine where visitors can get a real-life insight into the workings of an operational mine with public viewing tours available.
