Kambalda - Cities, Towns and Localities

The town site of Kambalda is located in the eastern goldfields region, about 60 km south of Kalgoorlie and 130 km north of Norseman. Gold was discovered in the area in 1897, and the government soon decided to declare a town site here. The town name is an Aboriginal word, the meaning of which is unknown. The town site was gazetted in December 1897.

There was little development at Kambalda, and the place remained a ghost town until the Western Mining Corporation found nickel nearby in the early 1970's. It then soon developed into a thriving company town.
