Shire of Coolgardie
The Shire of Coolgardie is the gateway to the Western Australia Goldfields, when travelling from Perth. It includes the towns of Kambalda, Coolgardie, Widgiemooltha and the Aboriginal community of Kurrawang.
Coolgardie was the birthplace of the great gold rush of 1892 and features
majestic turn of the century architecture. Today it thrives as a small mining community, featuring affordable housing, a relaxed atmosphere and a range of essential facilities and conveniences. The town is just a short drive from a wealth of outback attractions, including nature reserves, ghost towns, beautiful rock formations and the Golden Quest Discovery Trail, Holland Track - John Holland Way and the Golden Pipeline drive trail.
Australia's nickel mining industry started in Kambalda, which offers excellent employment and business opportunities. The town enjoys a lively
family and community atmosphere, along with many new facilities. Regular
land-sailing events conducted on the Shire's expansive salt lakes are a unique highlight of the recreational activities available.
