Leonora, with its wide main street and stunning historic buildings, is becoming a popular destination for people travelling through the Goldfields. Whether you’re embarking on the Golden Quest Discovery Trail, wanting to explore the ghost town of Gwalia, or simply taking a self-drive around the region, the town of Leonora features quality services and facilities for all travellers.
Leonora’s history dates back to 1869 when explorer John Forrest and his party made camp near a hill and named it Mount Leonora. 25 years on, prospectors moved through the area, and by 1896 gold was discovered, leading to the establishment of Leonora and Gwalia. Leonora then became the largest centre in the North-East Goldfields and by 1908 boasted a number of shops and accommodation options for miners and families.
Mining has continued to this day with gold and nickel being produced in large quantities. Now, Leonora sits as a base to explore the North-East Goldfields and is a great destination for singles, couples, and families with something for everyone to enjoy and learn.
Leonora Lodge is the perfect place to stay while exploring Leonora, Gwalia, and nearby attractions.
