Description

Discover the unique role the town has played in WA’s development, both as a centre of mining and its place at the edge of the Nullarbor Plain.

The Museum of the Goldfields showcases the rich history of the Eastern Goldfields and the city’s mining heritage.

Explore the largest display of the State’s collection of gold bars and nuggets, step back in time to see how prospectors searched for this precious metal, and learn about the life and hardships faced by mining families during the early 1900s.

The Museum of the Goldfields has the best photo ops – including the heritage-listed British Arms Hotel (believed to be the narrowest pub in the Southern Hemisphere), De Bernales Building, restored Miner’s Cottage and the iconic fixture on the City’s landscape, the Ivanhoe headframe offering panoramic views of the City.

The Museum showcases roving exhibits, so make sure you check out the exhibition space.
