A small outback town, with 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!

Now in its 21st 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 2022 Golden Gift is set to be the best.

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 neighbouring Gwalia.
