Westonia Joans Leap Attractions

Is significant to the people in the district because of the following event which unfolded in the gold era of the time. It is situated aproximatley 1km East of the townsite along Boodarockin Rd on the edge of the edna May mine boundary. Story has it that a school girl named Joan, was running along a High Mullock dump (rock from which gold has been extracted)not knowing that there was an uncovered mine shaft of approximately 200ft in depth in her path. With split second thinking the running event was changed into a long jump event, which would have put any Olympic athlete to shame. Joan landed on the opposite side of the shaft with little room to spare.

Address: Boodarockin Road (Just on the outskirt of town on the edge of the Mine)

Westonia Moondyne Joe & Boodalin Soak Attractions

Check out where Moondyne Joe was tracked and captured on the 29th of September 1866. Moondyne Joe escaped prison early in the month of August and met up with three other escapees making robberies and narrowly avoiding capture left Perth by foot on the 5th of September along Explorer Charles Hunt’s established travellers route from York to Kalgoorlie. The idea was that the convicts would catch up to Hunt and his men working along the route and steal horses and supplies needed to get them to the S.A. border. However their plans were foiled when their tracks were found 160kms east of York. A team of police then set out after them and eventually caught up with them at Boodalin Soak located just off Stoneman Rd roughly 6km North West of Westonia townsite. Boodalin Soak also features a Stone Well a part of the series along Hunt’s trail excavated and lined by CC Hunt with the help of convict labourers. The stone work lining is a dry stone wall constructed in a circular fashion. Orchids & fascinating carpets of everlastings can be found through the spring months.
