Welcome to the Shire of Leonora


 Leonora is the service centre for the mining, exploration and well established pastoral industry. Gwalia is a must see for the visitor as it has been restored to its original condition (as it was in the early 1900's) and boasts one of Australia's finest museums. Malcolm serves today only as a railhead and has a population of zero. Read More...


Heritage Win Gwalia

"The Shire of Leonora have not let their remote location stop them from tackling big projects. The completion of the five-year $3.3 million Gwalia Upgrade Project is their biggest heritage achievement to date.

The project aimed to deliver an ambitious works program at Gwalia, including the conservation of Gwalia's Historical Precinct, Museum and Hoover House, reconstruction of the historic timberheadframe and preservation of the Gwalia settlement's 22 traditional miners' cottages.

The judges believe the completion of this conservation work ensures Gwalia's place as an important heritage and tourist destination in the future."
