The small goldfields town of Kookynie is located two hours' drive north of Coolgardie or ten hours east of Perth. Kookynie is an authentic, living 'ghost town', not to be missed if visiting the Northern Goldfields.
This is true outback Australia. In 1905 it was home to 1500 people with six hotels, electric street lights, public baths, a brewery and many brick buildings. Today there is only the one working pub and a population of approximately 15 people.
Nearby is the historic Niagara Dam, a great camping spot. Learn all about Kookynie and the surrounding area's history in the museum located within the local hotel. Dine in one of Australia's true outback pubs located in a mining ghost town. Enjoy a cold beer and game of pool or darts in the hotel. The hotel also caters for overnight guests.
