Our Story

Menzies is a mining and pastoral town in the Northern Goldfields, 730km northeast of Perth and 132km north of Kalgoorlie. It’s not a large town and doesn't appear in the news very often, but this was not always the case. 

Like many towns in Western Australia, it was born in and boomed during the gold rush days of the 1890s. Then, following the pattern which has become typical of many gold mining towns, the limit of available resources was reached, the people drifted away and the area declined. Despite these changing fortunes, Menzies continued to survive.

What We Do

The Menzies CRC and Visitor Centre is the central hub of the community and endeavours to keep the community up to date with information and technology. Visitors to the region are welcome to call in and take a guided look around or visit the Menzies Visitor Centre history room to discover more about Menzies. Pamphlets, brochures, guide books and maps, together with souvenirs are available from the Visitors Centre.
