City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder logoKalgoorlie is located within the Eastern Goldfields region of WA, around 595km north-east of Perth. Its local government area is the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder, one of the most populous areas in outback WA and home to around 30,000 people.

The name Kalgoorlie is derived from the Wangai word Karlkurla or Kulgooluh which means ‘the place of the silky pears’. The area lies on the traditional lands of the Wangkatja group of peoples.

Kalgoorlie is also home to one of the richest gold deposits in the world – the famous ‘Super Pit’ mine. Operations have come a long way since the original gold rush days that began in 1893, with around 15 million tonnes of rock now moved each year, producing between 10 and 20 tonnes of gold.
