Travel Tips for Kalgoorlie
Menzies to Kalgoorlie Classic
This is a bike event which is held in June each year. The race was first held in 1928 and begain in Menzies, which is 81 miles north of Kalgoorlie with 24 riders virtually doing the ride on what was pretty much a dirty track. The event changed its name a couple of times but today is known as the Menzieis to Kalgoorlic Classic. The route has also improved a great deal since then. The fastest time so far (2007) has been 2 hours 28 mins.
Broad Arrow is 38k north of Kalgoorlie and 633 east of Perth.
It is a gold Ghost Town still with one hotel.
This was built in 1876 and featured in a movie in 1971 starring Goojie Withers.
This is not on the main highway, we made a special trip to see a couple of Ghost Towns.
The Victoria Park band pavilion or rotunda was built in less than 3 months and opened in 1903. Every Sunday the Kalgoorlie Brass Band would perform open-air concerts to the citizens of Kalgoorlie. In 2001 the rotunda was relocated from Victoria Park to Hammond Park.

Two up School
This 2 up school is the original and only legal bush 2 up school in Australia, located down a bumpy dirt road 7.5k, from Kalgoorlie.
We were there in 1996, I believe it may be only a TOURIST Attraction there, I was invited to play, easy money they thought but I must say I felt a bit intimadated, there were obviously some ladies of the night from Hay Street, Kalgoorlie trying to increase their earnings.
A Huge Operation
You can look down some 370 metres from the vantage point and 1.5 km across the entire pit and still the whole thing continues to extend. They believe that within 10 years, the depth will have reached 500 metres. Currently the depth is below sea level and I’ve read that the pit is as deep as Ayres Rock is high.
