Kalgoorlie's Museum of the Goldfields is the best place in the city to start to begin to understand what this place is all about. Learn about the gold mining history, the wild west era when Kalgoorlie was just a frontier town with a terrible reputation, way out in the red outback of Western Australia. The museum has great exhibitions and an excellent collection of artefacts and information boards to enjoy.

The Museum of the Goldfields provides an insight into the gold mining history of WA. The museum is noticeable from some distance away thanks to the massive red mining platform standing in front of it. There’s an exhibition of gold nuggets on display in the basement, and a good view over the town from the top level of the mining platform. Only open until 3pm.
