Kalgoorlie Boulder’s thriving days of glory
began in 1893 when three down–on–their–luck
Irishmen, Patrick Hannan, Tom Flanagan and
Daniel Shea stumbled across 100 ounces of
alluvial nuggets when they were forced to stop
to replace a shoe for their horse. Hannan rode
through to Coolgardie and registered the claim
on 17 June 1893, and so it was through the
ensuing Goldrush that Kalgoorlie was born.
Kalgoorlie Boulder is still one of the world’s
biggest gold mining cities, and that feeling
of excitement and discovery is still in the air
Both Kalgoorlie and Boulder have beautiful
examples of Goldrush architecture to explore.
Walking down the main street in Kalgoorlie is,
for many, like going back in time. You will find
great examples of architecture from bygone
eras, including such gems as the City Markets
(1901), Government Buildings (1899), the York,
Palace, and Exchange Hotels and The Kalgoorlie
Miner building (1900).
To make the most of the historic CBD, why
not try the Kalgoorlie Walking Tour? You can
collect a headset from the Kalgoorlie Boulder
Pure Gold and explore at your leisure. Wander
between more than 35 historic attractions and
discover a nugget of history about each one.
Available 7 days a week, $12 per person.
Kalgoorlie Boulder Pure Gold is located within
the walls of the Kalgoorlie Town Hall (1908).
A tribute statue to Paddy Hannan sits outside
the building welcoming visitors old and new –
whilst the original is kept inside the Town Hall
for safe keeping.
At the top end of Hannan Street, underneath
an original poppet head, more treasures can be
found at the WA Museum Kalgoorlie Boulder.
The displays of historical memorabilia regale
amazing tales from the early pioneers of the
City. The history of mining in Kalgoorlie Boulder
is a fascinating journey - a celebration of
innovation, ingenuity and sheer hard work.
w w w. k a l g o o r l i e t o u r i s m . c o m

experience, visit the Hannans North Tourist

Kalgoorlie and Boulder owe much of their
success to the engineering skills and vision
of CY O’Connor. O’Connor was responsible
for the design and construction of a pipeline
which was to supply much needed water to
the region. The pipeline was opened in 1903,
delivering fresh clean water from Perth to the
Mount Charlotte Reservoir in Kalgoorlie.
The original pipeline is still in use and remains
the lifeline that supplies water to the region
With a guaranteed supply of fresh water and
ever increasing finds of gold, the population of
Kalgoorlie and Boulder swelled as men came
by the thousands to find their fortune on the
Goldfields. With the influx of single men, so too
came the demand for goods and services.
One such notorious service was provided by the
local brothels. At one time, there were at least
25 brothels in the Hay Street area. There is now
only one surviving brothel in Kalgoorlie today.
Although they still open their doors for original
form of business, Questa Casa also opens its
doors to tourists to take part in a brothel tour
to learn about this colourful part of Kalgoorlie
Boulder history.

Theatre (1930) and its art deco design, the Court
Hotel (1900), the Loopline Railway Museum and
Information Centre and the Boulder Town Hall.

Railway Museum and Information Centre.
The museum celebrates what was once one

Open 7 days a week, this is a great stop to find
out about the Railway’s history and get some
local information.
The Boulder Town Hall was completed in
1908 and houses another piece of amazing
craftsmanship, The Phillip Goatcher Curtain.
The Goatcher Curtain is an exquisite hand
In the heart of the main street of Boulder
stands the Miners Monument, a proud

Mine, to others it’s the richest square mile of
gold bearing earth in the world; to most, its

Coolgardie (Mother of the Goldfields),
located 558 kilometers east of Perth and
38 kilometers from Kalgoorlie-Boulder, was
the first settlement of the Western Australia
Eastern Goldfields.
Coolgardie saw the biggest movement
of people in Australian History when gold
was found at Fly Flat back in 1892 by
Arthur Bayley and William Ford. Although
the town’s population has decreased since
then, Coolgardie has retained many of its
magnificent buildings associated with its rich
and colourful past. Today it offers tourists a
fabulous heritage precinct.
There is plenty to see and do in and around
Coolgardie and visitors should allow at least a
day to ensure they don’t miss the Goldfields
Exhibition Museum, Warden Finnerty’s
Residence, the Pioneer and Coolgardie
Cemeteries, Ben Prior’s Park, and a walk
along Bayley Street to view the heritage
Then there are a multitude of day trips such
as Burra Rocks; Cave Hill Nature Reserve; Mt
Burgess; the Gorge featuring remains of an
extinct volcano; the Kunanalling Hotel ruins;
75 kilometres to the south is Widgiemooltha’s
Larkinville Mine where the largest gold
nugget ever found in WA was discovered in
1931; Victoria Rock; Rowles Lagoon; and Jack
Carins’ Camp - where prospector Jack Carins
lived in isolation for 30 years.
w w w. k a l g o o r l i e t o u r i s m . c o m
Coolgardie Day is celebrated each year and
coincides with the Kalgoorlie Boulder Race
Kambalda is located 75 kilometres south
east of Coolgardie and 616 kilometres east
of Perth. Nestled in beautiful bush land, this
quiet mining community offers a restful place
to relax and visit.
Originally founded in 1897 as a gold mining
town during the Goldrush frenzy, Kambalda
was all but was deserted by 1908.
The township came alive again during the
1960’s nickel �boom’ which resulted in the
discovery of one of the worlds largest nickel
sulphide deposits in the area and the opening
of Australia’s first nickel mine.
There are picnic and camping facilities at
outback nature reserves with some striking
