About the client

Established during the gold rush in the 1890s, the Shire of Leonora was once the largest centre in the north-eastern Goldfields and has since become a thriving town filled with rich history and surrounded by natural beauty.

Market Creations Agency worked with the Shire of Leonora to develop the Shire of Leonora corporate website and Gwalia Ghost Town & Museum tourism website.

The Brief

Market Creations Agency worked with the Shire of Leonora to define their vision and bring it to life through a new digital experience. The Shire wanted to create engaging digital platforms that represented their brand and heritage. The website also needed to offer easy access to information so visitors could easily navigate the website and find what they were looking for. The creative team translated the Shire’s brand into two unique website designs that engage the end-user.


The Shire of Leonora was the first CouncilConnect subscriber to implement the newly developed Trails module. The module showcases a range of activities and attractions that visitors can participate in within the Shire, including the Leonora Heritage Trail.

Gwalia Ghost Town & Museum

Taking visitors back in time, the Gwalia Ghost Town & Museum website was developed to capture the living ghost town of Gwalia and offers a unique and educational experience of Western Australia’s rich mining history. Highlighting the town’s heritage, the new Gwalia Museum website is designed to inspire visitors to discover the fascinating history of the Northern Goldfields.

The Outcome

Market Creations Agency worked closely with the Shire of Leonora to transform their websites. Keeping the user experience at the forefront of the project, we brought the Shire’s story to life through the new digital platforms.

“The Shire of Leonora had been looking to update their website presence for some time and were impressed by the professional, helpful approach used by Market Creations throughout all stages of the upgrade process. Together, the project teams were able to come to an understanding regarding the Shire’s desire to present a modernised, professional-looking website, and were always quick to respond to and action any comments or concerns we had throughout development.

We would also like to commend them on their ability to remain patient and understanding of delays in the original project timeline due to other obligations that tend to plague a smaller council and are delighted by the result that has been achieved for both the Shire of Leonora and the Gwalia Historic Precinct Websites. Overall, staff involved in the upgrade felt that the transition was smoothly conducted and found their confidence in the ongoing management of those websites to be further reinforced by the subsequent training offered as part of the entire process. A job well done for all involved.”
