Awoke to a grey overcast sky which was a surprise as it was not cold overnight at all and no dew on the cars/caravans this morning however by 10am the clouds had largely gone.
First job was a little shopping to buy necessities such as soap and the all important Telstra SIM card.
Then it was time to visit the town’s reason to exist, the Super Pit.
It was a massive hole the machinery looked so tiny yet it too was on a gigantic scale.
I wanted to look at some of the nearby mining towns that had gone though boom and bust, they proved to be a bit of a disappointment. The area is littered with working mines but these old places have completely disappeared. At Broad Arrow all that remains is a cast iron water tank.
So it was back to Kalgoorlie to take in the sights.
From the town reservoir lookout there were signs of mining in all directons.
The town is actually two towns Boulder has its own CBD.
There is something for everybody.
