A small outback town, elite athletes and a bitumen street as the track. Combine this with dirt track horse racing, fireworks, market stalls, bands and street entertainment all weekend for the kids and you have yourself the outback experience that is Leonora's Golden Gift Carnival!
In it's 18th year, the event features the iconic Elite Mile, Australia's richest mile running race along the dusty main street of Leonora. Along with athletics events for the whole family, concerts, fireworks, kids entertainment and activities, a racing carnival complete with fashions on the field, markets and loads more, the 2020 Golden Gift is set to be the best ever!
Located 234 kilometres from Kalgoorlie, Leonora has a rich outback history and heritage, from the old world grandeur of the legendary State Hotel, to the simple charm of iron and hessian miners' cottages in the eerie gold rush ghost town of neighboring Gwalia. Come along for the day or the weekend, it's an experience like no other.
