Kalgoorlie Holidays Overview
Kalgoorlie is the Heart of the Goldfields and is located 595 kilometres east of Perth. Uncover a wealth of treasures in Australia’s largest Outback city. Discover a modern and exciting city in the midst of the heritage of ‘gold rush’ yesteryear. Australia’s largest inland city, Kalgoorlie boasts grand historical buildings, fine dining, five star resort, a busy nightlife and a very warm country welcome.
The discovery of rich alluvial gold deposits near Mount Charlotte in 1893, the gold rush had started and European settlement of Kalgoorlie quickly followed. Within days, over 700 gold diggers were pegging out their mining claims in the region.
Today, the Golden Mile is still actively worked by Kalgoorlie Consolidated Gold Mines with the advantages over the past 20 years of modern open cut mining technologies. The community has a vision for the future and acknowledges the past, recognising the history and preservation of cultural significant sites and heritage buildings. Take a stroll through town and the full impact of heritage in the buildings will be astounding. This is a beautiful city and region to visit for your next holiday.

The ultimate event, the ‘Undies 500’ is a car rally with a difference. Held in conjunction with the February markets in Boulder, you only need a warped sense of humour and be prepared for the unexpected. There are no rules except obviously for normal road rules and what the judges make up. Be prepared for a lot of mad cap fun with flour and water bombs. The judges are openly happy to be bribed, say for thinking your 2008 Jaguar is really only worth $500, but please, grease their palms with Undies Dollars first. A non stop round of fun and games, this is one event you don’t want to miss.
Kalgoorlie Boulder Community Fair has been taking place for over 50 years and is a tradition in Kalgoorlie in March each year. This is an exciting event entertainment with exhibits and many activities throughout the weekend. Don’t miss the spectacular fireworks on Saturday night.
