Gold was found in Goongarrie in May 1893 by Billy Frost and Jack Bennett. The site was the first important gold discovery after Coolgardie (before Kalgoorlie). Orginigally known as the Roaring Gimlet of the Ninety Mile (its distance from Coolgardie), this once prosperous town boasted a post and telegraph office, 2 hotels and several shops which did a good trade as a stopover for the daily coach from Coolgardie to Menzies. Both the failure of the local mine and the coming of the railway put an end to the town's prosperity.
