Kalgoorlie Accommodation Caravan Park claims to be "centrally located" but it proves not to be. The campground is actually located not in Kalgoorlie but in Boulder, a 2.5 kms walk from the town centre. Felt unsafe on the way. Finding something to eat after 8 p.m. was a challenge, the town closes down early.
The campground itself is really nice. The big swimming pool is definitely a plus. Its vicinity to the airport, however, makes it rather noisy, luckily there are not many planes during the night. And it was among the more expensive campgrounds during our trip.
The Palace Hotel was built in 1897 during the height of the prosperity of the goldrush times. It was built to be the most ‘luxurious hotel’ outside of Perth. It was build from stone quarried from the Ashlar quarries. Fresh water was pied into the bathrooms and electric lighting was produced from its own generator – a first. In its day, the hotel was grand and impressive and a well used meeting place. Quite a notable regular guest of the hotel was Herbert Hoover who at the time was a young US mining engineer who went on to continue his career in China before becoming the 31st President of the United States in 1929.
