Kalgoorlie BOULDER

Boulder is just 4k from the Kalgoorlie PO, but for people from Boulder are without doubt Boudlerites and that other town could be a thousand miles away. Boulder like its sister is its own entity, and is not a suburb of Kalgoorlie. The town is a mining town.

Until 1989 it was part of its own municipality. In 1989 the towns of Kalgoorlie and Boulder were merged to form the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder. After the merger Boulder officially became a, suburb of Kalgoorlie, but tell that to a local

On the 20th of April 2010 Kalgoorlie-Boulder suffered a magnitude 5.0 earthquake which damaged several of the historic buildings in Boulder. The buildings are being repaired but will give an opportunity to boost the heritage factors in the town.

The number of hotels, most with much repair work to be done, is quite significant.

The Boulder War Memorial is at the eastern end of the town near the station museum (now closed because of the earthquake).

The Military Museum is in the central part of the town.

The churches in Boulder are a mix of the old and new. The Old Catholic being the most traditional and old???

A visit to Kalgoorlie will ensure a visit to Boulder. A must visit.
