When Paddy Hannan discovered gold in Kalgoorlie in 1983, it started as a whisper but soon attracted fortune seekers from all over the globe. As prosperity was being discovered, more and more people descended upon the town. At first lonely clusters of tents were erected across the landscape but soon population explosions caused bustling gold rush towns to be formed.
Kalgoorlie is still Australia’s largest inland town and is at the heart of the gold mining industry; with the enormous Super pit mine still operational. The town itself still has the ambience of the old gold rush days, with broad streets and low buildings; many of which have railed balconies that reach out onto the streets.
Kalgoorlie has a rich history steeped in the romance, hard times and booming success of the Gold Mining Industry. more
