Welcome to Laverton
Laverton crouches on the edge of the Great Victoria Desert. The visitor centre is combined with the Great Beyond – Explorers' Hall of Fame, which uses technology to tell pioneer stories. The not-for-profit Laverton Outback Gallery is a great place to purchase paintings, necklaces, woomeras and boomerangs – up to 80% of the price goes to the Aboriginal artist.
Laverton marks the start of the Outback Way. Expect to overnight and/or stock up on supplies of fuel and water here, and definitely check at the visitor centre for current road conditions.
