Come and see why the Shire of Leonora won the 2019 Heritage Award for their $3.3million dollar Gwalia Upgrade Project! Gwalia is a MUST see if you’re visiting the Goldfields region. The living ghost town of Gwalia is the doorway to a unique experience of Western Australia’s rich mining history.

The little settlement that grew up around the Sons of Gwalia Mine in the late 1890s thrived until the final whistle blew on 28 December 1963, closing the mine and putting 250 men out of work. Gwalia’s 1200-strong population fell to just 40 in less than three weeks.

Today, the abandoned homes and businesses of Gwalia create a tangible snapshot of a vanished era and way of life.
