WA Day Long Weekend – June 3-6

A small outback town, elite athletes, $50,000 up for grabs, 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!



This year the event will feature, as always, Australia’s richest 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. We hope that everyone enjoys the 2016 Leonora Golden Gift and wish all competitors the best of luck.


3rd – 6th June 2016 – Opening dates for registrations to be announced soon
