Kalgoorlie Off The Beaten Path: 38 reviews and 78 photos


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.

Location: The Super Pit

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
