In it’s 16th 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 2018 Golden Gift is set to be the best ever!

This year the event will feature, as always, Australia’s richest outback mile running race along the iconic main street.


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 neighboring Gwalia. Come along for the day or the weekend, it’s an experience like no other.


2-4 June 2018 – Opening dates for registrations to be announced soon
