Kalgoorlie-Boulder, or Kalgoorlie as it is more commonly known, is the hub of the Western Australian Goldfields and the largest city in the Australian Outback. From wild beginnings as a gold rush town full of fortune-seekers it has grown into a bustling cosmopolitan twin city with a distinctive character. And being just an hour’s flight or a day’s drive/train journey from Perth, it’s a popular tourist destination.

The Western Australian gold rush began in 1893, when Paddy Hannan found gold in the area. Today, Kalgoorlie-Boulder is one of the most important mining areas in the world, with several large mining operations located in and around the city, including the huge Super Pit.

As rich in history as it is in gold, the city has an impressive array of heritage buildings, including the magnificent Kalgoorlie Town Hall, Boulder Town Hall and St Mary’s Church, as well as grand hotels, outback pubs, shop fronts and private homes. A visit to the Australian Prospectors and Miners Hall of Fame will also offer a fascinating insight into the area’s colourful past. And beyond the city, eerie ghost towns tell the story of early gold prospecting dreams that have long been abandoned.

In contrast, Kalgoorlie has a thriving nightlife and a wide variety of modern tourist attractions, shops and leisure facilities. In fact, the city has more restaurants and hotels per capita than any other regional centre in Western Australia, and plays host to many of the region’s biggest events.
