Ora Banda is located approximately 70km from Kalgoorlie. The Ora Banda Historical Inn will be 100 years old in 2011. The grounds have 7 motel units and a caravan park (coming soon) with powered and un-powered sites. Located next to the Ora Banda Historical Inn grounds is the old Government Battery which used to process ore for the local prospectors and will soon be turned into a museum.

Ora Banda is a goldfields town which seems to be hovering between ghost town and revitalised mining centre. Although Ora Banda (the name is Spanish meaning 'band of gold) is now a virtual ghost town, it can claim a longevity which most of the other so called 'ghost towns' on the goldfields have never enjoyed.

Gold was discovered in the Ora Banda district in 1893 and shortly afterwards the Weston brothers established the Ora Banda mine. The mine continued to operate until the late 1970s although it was forced to stop operations during World War I because of the lack of water.
