Kalgoorlie and Boulder amalgamated in 1989. Up till then they were two towns lying side by side. Boulder’s main street, Burt Street, is five kilometres from Kalgoorlie’s main street, Hannan Street. Boulder was named after “The Great Boulder Mine”, the first mine on the Golden Mile.

A walk along Burt Street is a walk through living history. Beautiful reminders such as the Town Hall with the Goatcher Curtain, the Miners Monument, Goldfields War Museum and the Loopline Railway Station set amongst the shopping precinct makes for an enjoyable morning.

Boulder Market Day falls on the third Sunday of each month and is a busy mix of displays, stalls, entertainment and tours.

Tour the surrounds of the Golden Mile in the old train which once carried hundreds of miners to work each day. This busy railway has now been overtaken by the expanding Super Pit. Train departs daily from Boulder Station at 1000.

Kalgoorlie-Boulder is living history, with the past conspicuous in every part of the City. The architecture, the pubs, the pictures on the wall, the wide streets, the houses in the suburbs and the signs on the shop fronts all give glimpses of a glorious past.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
