Description

The current location of the Menzies Nursing Post is the historic Mining Wardens residence.

W Lambden-Owen (author of Cossack Gold) was the Warden and the Resident Magistrate for eight years starting 1896. The Warden was probably the most important government official in the Goldfields.

The first hospital in Menzies was a makeshift tent located in the centre of town accommodating three beds.

Today, the Nursing Post is used for weekly Clinics with visiting nurses and monthly visits from the Royal Flying Doctor Service.
