Welcome from Kalgoorlie-Boulder
The City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder has always been a leader in regional development. We pride ourselves on being bold, being innovative and being a driver for future growth. It is no coincidence that the goldrush days of perseverance and grit have evolved today, to what we are calling the “new boom”.
Together with key agencies, we are delighted to host the 2021 Sustainable Economic Growth Regional Australia (SEGRA) National conference in Kalgoorlie-Boulder. The focus on Regional Economic Development has never been more important than it is now. As our City embarks on its’ mission to ensure we are a sustainable regional city of the future; we welcome robust discussion about the opportunities available.
Our modern, thriving regional City is currently undergoing a radical transformation; thanks to a number of critical projects that encourage growth and investment. Those that value add to mining and create opportunities in new and exciting industries such as Down Stream Processing, Tourism, Education, Renewable Energy and Commercial Retail Developments are just a few key examples.
The City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder is everything, everywhere else in W.A isn’t. It’s a combination of First Nations’ pride, a pioneering spirit and legendary tales. Visiting Kalgoorlie-Boulder means larger than life heritage architecture, quirky characters and memorable experiences. You’ll arrive wondering and leave enthralled; with a few stories of your own to tell.
The City prides itself on working collaboratively for the benefit of Kalgoorlie-Boulder and the wider Goldfields Region. Hosting SEGRA is no exception. This national conference brings expertise and exposure to Kalgoorlie-Boulder that we are eager to embrace.
At this conference, we will share our own journey to diversification and reveal the steps we have made to promote economic sustainability for Kalgoorlie-Boulder. I would like to personally invite you to join us in November 2021, as we discover a world of possibilities for Regional Australia.
