Laverton almost became a ghost town when the gold ran out, luckily nickel was discovered and the mining industry was restored.
Nickel mining ceased in 1994 and $4 million has since been spent rehabilitating the area and establishing the Windarra Heritage Trail. This modern heritage trail stands in unique contrast with the old mine shafts scattered throughout the area.
Hotel, motel and caravan park accommodation is available if you’re spending the night.
