Coolgardie Travel Guide: 42 reviews and 106 photos

This was day 9 of our holiday going from Kalgoorlie to Hyden.
Coolgardie is a small town you pass through on the way.
Like Kalgoorlie it was a gold town but the town went into decline from WW1 as there was more gold in Kalgoorlie and by 1920 it was no longer a municipality.
It is situated aprox 550 k nth east of Perth, aprox 7 hr drive along the Great Eastern Highway (route 94)
Last info I had there was a population of 500.
