Leonora became the largest centre on the North Eastern Goldfields and by 1908 boasted 7 hotels, general stores, chemists, tailors and bakeries. Mining has continued until the present day with gold, and now nickel, being produced in large quantities. The township of Leonora lies 230km north of Kalgoorlie.
Gwalia is a ghost town although still home for some old and new residents. The old store, guesthouse and many other cottages can be viewed first hand. The State Hotel is now a mining company office. The museum provides fascinating displays of early history and lifestyle.
