The Desert Inn Hotel
A 12 hours’ drive north-east of Perth and a starting point to the Great Victoria Desert, Laverton has ghost-town status from its former gold-rush heydays. More recently known for its nickel, the area is being rehabilitated to establish the Windarra Heritage Trail. In this inhospitable region of the wild, wild west, it’s worth a stop at the Desert Inn Hotel to learn about the town’s chequered past and help blow away the tumbleweeds.
