Feysville is an abandoned eastern goldfields townsite, about 25 km south east of Kalgoorlie. The Feysville mine was established here around 1896, and in 1897 the local Progress Committee sought the declaration of a townsite. The townsite was gazetted in 1898, and is said to honour Henry Fey who prospected here in 1895.

Jack BRAY of Feysville unearthed a 267 ounce nugget dubbed the 'Golden Aussie' in August of 1980, He sold his 'monster' for $250,000.
