Kalgoorlie: Pure Gold!
Get ready for a heady trip to Kalgoorlie, Western Australia's largest goldfields town famed for its fascinating gold rush history, fabulous old buildings and old gold miners' ghost towns.

Things to do in Kalgoorlie
Both Kalgoorlie and Boulder are packed with grand old buildings (visit the magnificent Boulder Town Hall), lively pubs and colourful characters still living the prospecting dream. Vibrant Hannan Street (named after Irishman Paddy Hannan who struck gold in 1893) is lined with pubs, nightclubs, cafes and restaurants.

If, after all the sightseeing you need to cool off, stop for a quick dip in Western Australia's largest indoor pool in Johnson Street.
