The City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder was formed in 1989 after it was decided that the two separate Shires were to amalgamate. It is located in the heart of the Goldfields-Esperance Region of Western Australia approximately 600 kilometers northeast of Perth. As the heart of the Goldfields, Kalgoorlie-Boulder is the strategic link between the east-west and north-south infrastructure corridors. The Great Western Woodlands surround the City, which is considered the largest intact temperate woodland remaining in the world.
Traditionally known for its mining industry and rich gold and nickel mineral deposits, Kalgoorlie is the second largest resource producing region in WA and one of the most significant in the world. Kalgoorlie-Boulder is also expected to play a significant future role in the State’s battery mineral extraction and refinery industry. A major contributor to both the West Australian and Australian economies, Kalgoorlie-Boulder’s Gross Regional Product was estimated at $3.36 billion in 2017-18.
Kalgoorlie-Boulder is renowned for its beautiful turn-of-the-century architecture and character buildings. The City has a unique heritage, stemming from the gold rush of the 1890s, which generated a population boom for the fledgling state of Western Australia. Kalgoorlie-Boulder played an instrumental part in the federation of Australia and is home to the richest square mile of gold in the world.
The City includes the suburbs of Kalgoorlie, Boulder, Hannans, Karlkurla, Lamington, Piccadilly, Williamstown, South Kalgoorlie, Somerville, West Kalgoorlie, Victory Heights, Broadwood, and South Boulder.
