Anyone visiting Kalgoorlie should take time out to visit the charming Burt St precinct of Kalgoorlie's 'other half', Boulder. Lovingly restored after the 2010 earthquake, Boulder has wide shady awnings, hitching posts and all signage and shopfronts are sympathetic to the early 1900s. Dominating the...More

I visited on a Sunday market day when the Town Hall is open. I enjoyed the free tour including the backstage areas. The Goatcher Curtain is a gem that is well worth seeing.

We did a tour in connection with the Boulder Fair on Sunday. The guide, Robert, was most professional and interesting, and we had the opportunity to visit behind-the-scenes rooms as well as the main public areas. Thoroughly recommend a visit to this Town Hall.

We took the guided tour and learned a lot about the building and the history of Kalgoorlie/Boulder. The main attraction is the rare painted backdrop that hangs here. The artist was famous for his backdrops back in the day, but as the custom was to...More

Well worth a visit just to see the curtain. The building itself is very average. The Kalgoorlie Town Hall has much more character.
