Where on Earth is Widgiemooltha?

Good question.
Thats Wid Gee Mool Thar in the local "Strine" dialect 'round here.
Also the location of the largest gold nugget (1235 oz) discovered in the Western Australian Goldfields in 1931. Read more of The Golden Eagle Nugget history here.




Its commemorated in one of a series of fairly collectable coins issued by the Perth Mint in 1987. This should stir some salivating in those gold bugs out there....


Its also the destination for a nice 5 day, 1600km ride about for LGDH and makad. Nothing too taxing but some points of interest along the way


LGDH

Theres lots of little gold mines out in the bush through there, but all the easy stuffs been found. There is still a little bit of gold to be found out there for the hungry adventurer at the Widgiemooltha Roadhouse - The Widgie Burger!
