Widgiemooltha is located an hour and fifteen minutes south of Kalgoorlie and is home to the famous Golden Eagle Nugget; the largest gold nugget ever found in the Goldfields, tipping the scales at 1,136 ounces in 1931. See the mineral rock display and other attractions like Aboriginal artefacts and a souvenir shop.

On the spectacular salt lake, Lake Lefroy, sailors strap themselves into land yachts which can travel up to speeds of 100 kilometres per hour. Meals are available at the roadhouse. Widgiemooltha offers good quality budget motel accommodation along with powered caravan and camping sites.

The new owners (brothers) and one wife and kids could do with a good break for their business. What an adventure. Hang in there guys. I hope it turns out to be a goldmine for you. My father was gold prospecting in the area when the golden eagle was found and we have had a postcard copy for many years of which I will email. You can hang it in your museum.

My son and I called in recently on our travels. Have you found out what is the old bush railed area on the side of the road.
