In the late 1890’s, the discovery of gold by Irishman, Paddy Hannan, in Kalgoorlie, Western Australia, caused large influxes of prospectors from overseas and interstate, and one of the last gold rushes in Australia’s history began.
This region has a long history of continuous inhabitation and cultivation by Aboriginal Australians as well as the European migrants who came to seek their fortune from 100 years ago and therefore, the Goldfields offers visitors a rich cultural experience as a region with it’s varied multi cultural population.
As rich in history as it is in gold, the city has an impressive array of heritage buildings, including the magnificent Kalgoorlie Town Hall, Boulder Town Hall, as well as grand hotels and outback pubs.
Kalgoorlie offers a range of excellent accommodation, from four-star luxury resort hotels and first-class motels through to self-catering units, caravan parks, bed and breakfasts, and backpackers lodges.
