It was originally set up as a separate settlement to serve the Golden Mile, but Boulder’s heyday passed as Kalgoorlie’s suburbs slowly absorbed the quaint little town. Boulder has a similar collection of grand old buildings and pubs that – like Kal’s – have received a face-lift. Most people do a lap of the main street on their way up the hill to the astonishing Super Pit Lookout, an absolute must. Phone or drop into the Super Pit Shop at 2 Burt St when you get to town to find out when a blast is scheduled – an experience you won’t forget easily.
