You will not find swinging saloon doors and armed strengthens, but with his hard pioneer history and stories of gold fever Kal, locally known as the hub of the Wild West Western Australia.
Much remains unchanged from Kalgoorlie in 1800, when the streets and hotels with gold-fevered miners and ladies swarmed the night. Here, the spirit lives on the time of the gold rush.
Majestic Colonial architecture is proud to serve skimpy barmaids drinks at historic pubs and a colossal super pit ", the largest open pit mine in Australia" still mines the richest square mile of gold bearing earth in the world.
Adventure-wise, cities are not much better than Cal
Visit the original shanty, where gambling from two-up instead, or go the intoxicating red light district on Hay Street.
Discover an old shaft and discover historical hardships on Mining Hall of Fame, or climb Mt Charlotte for a million dollar view of the city.
Pan for gold, tour eerie ghost towns neighboring Broad Arrow and Kanowna or ogle impressive Edwardian building in Kalgoorlie town square.
