A small outback town, elite athletes, $65,000 up for grabs, a bitumen street as the track. This is Australia's Outback Mile. Combine this with a lawn bowls tournament, fireworks, market stalls, live bands like End of Fashion and YABU BAND. Throw in some street entertainment all weekend for the kids and you have yourself the outback experience that is Leonora's Golden Gift Carnival!
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.
