The Great Beyond Visitors Centre

The Great Beyond Visitors Centre is a ‘must visit’ Laverton attraction, and incorporates a gift shop with an extensive collection of history books, maps and guides and unique locally made gifts, a café serving delicious cakes, cold drinks and coffee and the official visitor centre for the Shire of Laverton.

The ‘Hall of Fame’ celebrates the many explorers who traversed the Laverton region from the mid-19th to early 20th century. They include the likes of John Forrest (later to become WA’s first Premier), Ernest Giles (who emerged from the Great Victoria Desert in 1875, having commenced his journey at Beltana in South Australia), David Carnegie and Frank Hann.

Using various attention grabbing forms of technology that are sure to impress people of all ages, the Hall of Fame pays tribute to not only the explorers but also to the pioneers and women of the same era. From the gold rush days to the flora and fauna, pastoral history to the nickel boom of 1969, the Hall of Fame provides an overview from pre mining history to present day.
