Kalgoorlie, Western Australia
Kalgoorlie, in the Wangai language, means ‘place of the silky pears.’ Officially, Kalgoorlie is known as Kalgoorlie-Boulder, a town of about 28,500 people, according to the 2006 census. It is located in the Goldfields-Esperance region, about 595 km from Perth. It is the terminus of the Great Eastern Highway.
In 1893, Tom Flanagan, Dan O’Shea, and Patrick Hannan were traveling to Mount Youle. One of the horses on the prospecting expedition threw a shoe, which needed to be repaired. While halted, the prospectors saw signs of gold all around them. In 1893, Hannan filed a claim. Almost immediately, hundreds swarmed to what was then called Hannan’s, in search of gold. In 1898, there were about 2,018 people in Kalgoorlie, at a ratio of about three men for every woman.
Gold remains the major economic contributor in the Kalgoorlie region, with about one quarter of the workforce mining or supporting miners. Along with gold, nickel is mined. Because of the concentration of gold mines in the region, it was soon referred to as the Golden Mile. Today, it is considered the richest square mile of earth in the world. Kalgoorlie holds an international mining conference every August, called Diggers & Dealers.
Broad Arrow Ghost Town
This mining town was located about 38 kilometres north of Kalgoorlie. At the peak of the gold rush, there were over 15,000 residents, 8 hotels, 2 breweries, a hospital, a stock exchange, and a soft drink factory. A significant amount of gold was found in Broad Arrow, and rumor has it that some can still be found. Local lore says the name was changed when a prospector marked his gold find with Broad Arrows.
Australia’s Longest Golf Course
Nullarbor Links is the longest golf course either in Australia or in the world. The iconic golf course must be driven in a vehicle. You’ll pass the Ceduna oyster beds, wheat fields at Penong, and sheep farms near Nundroo. And you stop every so often to play a hole on the golf links. Then it’s back in the car for the beaches at Eucla, a sheep station at Fraser Range, and land sailing at Kambalda.
