A small outback town, elite athletes, $60,000 up for grabs (Officially Australia’s Richest Mile Running Race), 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! Held on 30-31 May 2020.
Located 234km 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. Come along for the day or the weekend, it’s an experience like no other.
