Coolgardie is an old goldmining town around 550kms east of Perth. Great quantities were discovered in 1892 by Arthur Bayley and William Ford and the town proved to be of an immense national importance especially during what was very much a time of severe depression of Australia. There is a wonderful Goldfields Museum which is housed in the old Court Building with over two floors of informative displays on the goldrush times. The Museum takes you step by step through a monumental mine rescue in 1907

Address: The Goldfields Region
