Leinster WA Style – #Inktober2016 Day 13

The mining town of Leinster in the ‘Golden Outback’ of Western Australia was named after a Leinster Downs Station (cattle / sheep) in the locality, which itself was probably named with fond memories of Leinster in Ireland.  A great contrast of scenery and climate between the two!

It was surprising to me that a company can own a whole town – housing, swimming pool, shops, infrastructure, everything!

interesting to see but once was enough and I wouldn’t suggest anyone puts it on their ‘bucket’ list!
