The Goldfields

Be lured to the Goldfields, where gold fever still hangs in the air from bygone days. Beautiful all year round, there is a wealth of exciting attractions in this picturesque and historic area. Walk along Kalgoorlie's majestic wide streets and soak in the character of the town, passing legendary grand old buildings. Explore another world by going on a fascinating tour of an old underground gold mine, board a train for a journey around Australia's richest reef of gold, the Golden Mile and wander through museums displaying collections from the gold rush era.
Stately towns brimming with heritage and memories of gold boom days are only part of the Goldfields experience. See beautiful collections of Aboriginal art in the town of Coolgardie, tour a mysterious ghost town and take in the thrill of prospecting by panning for gold. Encounter the quiet and isolation of the outback, full of wildlife and dramatic landscapes. The region is well-serviced by a range of tour and charter operators who are happy to share their local knowledge and make your visit memorable.
Towns in the Goldfields region include Kalgoorlie-Boulder, Norseman, Menzies, Cue, Laverton and Sandstone.
