The Lake Perkolilli Red Dust Revival - 2022
**2022 DATE TO BE CONFIRMED**
From 1914 to 1939, an isolated claypan 23km from Kalgoorlie hosted an annual motor racing meeting which became legendary.
Lake Perkolilli is a unique, rock hard claypan which has been the location for many Australian speed records. It was almost forgotten until vintage motor racing enthusiasts returned to bring it to life once again.

Getting to Lake Perkolilli from Kalgoorlie
Lake Perkolilli is marked on Google Maps and it is a simple drive from Kalgoorlie. Drive Northeast on Hannan Street, Kalgoorlie, turn right at the top of the hill after you pass the excellent Museum of the Goldfields. This is the Goldfields Highway, then turn left after a couple of kilometres onto Yarri Road towards Williamstown.
Drive through Williamstown and then continue on the roundabout onto Yarri Road (not Bulong Road or Black Street).
After approx. 30 minutes you’ll get to the old Kanowna townsite, continue on Yarri Road over the Lake Gwynne causeway and turn right on the Kurnalpi-Pinjin Road.
If you continue past this turnoff you’ll get to the entrant and spectator entry road which takes you directly onto the claypan.
