Menzies is a mining and pastoral town in the Northern Goldfields, 730km north east of Perth and 132km north of Kalgoorlie.
Menzies is not a large town and doesn’t appear in the news very often, but this was not always the case. Like many towns in Western Australia, it was born in and boomed during the gold rush days of the 1890s. Then, following the pattern which has become typical of many gold mining towns, the limit of available resources was reached and the people drifted away and the area declined.
Despite these changing fortunes, Menzies continued to survive.
