Mount Leonora, WA

ImageWell it has been a while since I have written anything and for that I am Sorry, I have spent the last 3.5 months living on the edge of the Great Victoria Desert.

There is not a lot to do out there hiking or mountaineering wise that could be achieved in my one day off per week.

I did however make a regular effort to run up the local “mountain” for want of a better word. so I thought I would share the experience with you.

From the township of Leonora make your way to the goldfields Highway and run in the direction of Kalgoorlie until you get to the turn off for Tower road, turn right onto tower road and follow the road until you see an obvious track leading up the mountain. follow that track uphill until you reach the water tower then follow up a short steep section to the summit. On the way down be careful on the steep section as it can be loose underfoot.

That’s about it for Mt Leonora, I would go early morning before it heats up and watch out for snakes.
