Laverton - Cities, Towns and Localities Accommodation
Approximately 980 km north east of Perth, “Laverton” is one of Western Australia’s outback towns, still growing from its founding in 1898, and named after Dr Charles William Laver. Part of the “northern goldfields” area, it offers an insight of it’s mining heritage, where old mine shafts can be found scattered throughout the area. Access is via Leonora about 100 km to the west.

Gold was discovered in the area in 1896 which saw many prospectors and miners move into the area. Among them was Dr Charles W. Laver. One of the most successful mines was Craiggiemore, and by 1897 a residential and business area had sprung up on the west side of the mine known as ‘British Flag’.

When the residents sought to have the townsite surveyed in 1899, it was found unsuitable and a new townsite was chosen about 3 km from the original site. In July 1900 the new townsite was then officially gazetted ‘Laverton’ in honour of Dr Charles Laver, who was a great promoter of the region.
