You can’t visit the region without exploring the stories and sites of the gold rush. Join an organised tour, or visit the Kalgoorlie Boulder Visitor Centre and guide yourself through museums, galleries and attractions - including the Museum of the Goldfields which houses the biggest collection of gold bars and nuggets in the state.
By night the popular Hannan Street is where you’ll find buzzing bars, restaurants and nightclubs, or drive to Mount Charlotte Lookout for a breathtaking view over Kalgoorlie’s historic streetscapes and twinkling skyline for sunset. If you’re lucky you might catch a glimpse of one of the famous electrical storms that commonly decorate the night sky.
A two hour drive north from Kalgoorlie you’ll find Lake Ballard and Australia’s largest outdoor gallery, inside Australia. The incredible installation of 51 sculptures inside a salt bed by artist Antony Gormley is a sight you’ll never forget.
